German logistics giant DB Schenker, which recently suspended deliveries into the UK due to Brexit delays, is expanding its presence in the West Midlands in a move expected to create 100 new jobs.

The seven-year deal sees the firm take on an additional 153,064sq ft unit at the 21-acre Centurion Park in Tamworth where it already occupies 140,000sq ft.

The shared-user facility has been taken on to accomodate new customer growth at the site near junction ten of the M42.

Other companies based at the park include DFS, Aldi, AAH Pharmaceuticals and Speedy Hire.

Gemma Butler, development and leasing manager at landlord St Modwen Industrial and Logistics, said: "We are pleased that DB Schenker has chosen to expand its premises at Centurion Park.

"As a long-standing customer of ours across the UK, we're looking forward to seeing the firm grow and DB Schenker remains a great asset to our national portfolio of industrial and logistics occupiers."

Eoghan Turner, head of UK real estate at DB Schenker, added: "We are delighted to be upscaling our operations in the West Midlands and it was extremely helpful that we were able to expand our floor space without having to uproot and relocate.

"The location is ideal for us and we look forward to growing our campus model here in Tamworth."
