Mark Thompson Transport, a part of Kinaxia Logistics group, has taken 110,000 sq ft of new office and logistics space as its new headquarters.
Based at the Stretton Distribution Centre in Warrington, the new site is set to create 20 new warehouse jobs, adding to the firm’s current 200 staff.
The premises, which marks the firm’s debut into warehousing facilities, have previously been used as the Royal Naval Air Station and a manufacturing and research base for The Hut Group’s Myprotein.
Speaking on the acquisition, Mark Thompson said: “This investment will enable us to meet increased demand from an expanding client base and represents a step change for the business.
“The new warehousing space creates opportunities for significant further growth by enabling us to develop our services to customers. At the same time, the move to new offices creates a more modern and efficient working environment for our loyal head office team.”
The investment is in line with Kinaxia’s internal expansion strategy, adding to Mark Thompson Transport’s 22 operating centres in bases across the UK that include Bury, Doncaster, Glasgow, Preston, Shrewsbury, and Tamworth.
