Wincanton has expanded its Scottish operations after securing a 15-year lease for a new distribution centre in Bellshill – one of the country’s largest industrial transactions in the past year.

The 126,920 sq ft unit at Belgrave Logistics Park, in the heart of Scotland’s ‘golden triangle’ is the largest letting of a speculative new build since 2018 for the Greater Glasgow market.

The distribution centre is six miles from Wincanton’s Motherwell hub, which it launched in April last year, and it said it would cater to the demands of its expanding client base.

Derek Stirling, country manager for Scotland at Wincanton, said: “This new distribution centre, our second in Scotland within two years, reinforces our long-term commitment to Scotland and promises enhanced services and efficiencies for our customers and partners across the country.

“We are delighted with the high-quality space and accessibility of our new facility at Belgrave, conveniently located in close proximity to our existing hub in Motherwell.”

The transaction was agreed with developer and landlord Knight Property Group.
