Leading wholesale food and drink supplier doubles operation at SEGRO Park Fairway Drive
Leading organic food and drink wholesaler, Wholegood, has signed a lease agreement to more than double its footprint at SEGRO Park Fairway Drive to help facilitate its significant expansion plans.
Wholegood has occupied a 22,679 sq ft unit at SEGRO Park Fairway Drive, west London, for almost 10 years. The supplier of organic produce and independent brands to retailers and wholesalers nationwide, including Ocado, has now taken an additional 23,424 sq ft across two adjoining buildings on the estate.
Carl Saxton-Pizzie, CEO and Founder at Wholegood, said:
“We are thrilled to be expanding our warehouse space with SEGRO in West London. We have had significant growth over the last few years with no sign of stopping. It's always been important for us to own our own supply chain and this choice has made us incredibly resilient to the current challenges faced by many businesses today.”
Alan Holland, Managing Director, Greater London at SEGRO, said:
“Resilient supply chains, particularly in the food and drink sector, are becoming increasingly important. With such an extensive UK network receiving same day deliveries, seven days a week, location and quality of distribution facility are paramount and SEGRO Park Fairway Drive ticks these boxes for Wholegood.”
SEGRO Park Fairway Drive offers a range of industrial units from 5,515 sq ft and is already home to a wide range of companies, including Lloyd Fraser Logistics and Kanada-Ya. SEGRO is redeveloping seven existing units on the estate to create three new units which will have a carbon neutral base build, use of renewable energy incorporating photovoltaic panels and LED lighting and will be targeting BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and an A+ EPC rating. The site is conveniently located on the A40 near Greenford, with swift access onto Western Avenue, Central London and the national motorway network, and is also in proximity to local shops, cafés and the Westway Cross Retail Centre.
