St. Modwen Park Newport - N101 August 2021

Industrial developer St Modwen Logistics has helped Welsh business Genpower scale up into a 100,000 sq ft warehouse, which it said would boost economic growth in the region.

The ‘big-box’ warehouse at St Modwen Park Newport will enable Genpower – an entrant in the Wales Fast Growth 50 list last year – to continue offering its e-fulfilment service, which includes picking, packing and distributing Hyundai Power Products across the UK.

The new warehouse attracted a BREEAM Very Good and EPC A rating through the inclusion of building fabric designed to improve air tightness above current building regulations; photovoltaic solar panels and EV charging ports.

"We have experienced an increased demand for high-quality warehouse space at St Modwen Park Newport, and we look forward to building more high-quality sustainable warehouses to meet this demand and supporting economic growth and job creation in Wales.”
