Clipper Logistics plc, a leading provider of value-added logistics solutions and e-fulfilment to the retail sector, has committed to a further ten years on Potter Space’s business park in Selby, having renewed the lease for its existing two units totalling 195,000 sq. ft.
Clipper Logistics began operating from the business park when it took an initial 165,000 sq. ft building in 2009, the unit contains three large mezzanine floors and a sophisticated conveyor system, making it ideal for Clipper’s specialist logistics handling of garments and high value retail products.
Following expansion, the company took an additional 30,000 sq. ft. building linked via a secured covered access route to its existing building.
With the combined operational facilities Clipper have been able to create a multi-customer shared use facility including a large-scale fashion returns operation. Following the signing of the lease, Potter Space has agreed to construct additional staff car parking & bicycle facilities. In addition, Clipper is increasing the office accommodation and staff welfare facilities to accommodate the increased activities.
Speaking about the lease renewal, managing director of Potter Space, Matthew Lamb, said, “Clipper Logistics has been a valued customer of ours for the last ten years and it has been great to witness its growth over that period.
“We pride ourselves on working closely with all our customers. By doing so we can be alerted to their needs on site and endeavour to provide additional facilities and services to enable the business to become more successful. Clipper is a great example of this approach as it continues to grow its operation on site resulting in the company’s wish to remain with us for at least another ten years.”
Paxton Carroll, Operations Director from Clipper Logistics, added, “As well as building a great working relationship with Potter Space, the fact we have renewed the lease for a further ten years is not only because of Selby’s strategic location but because Potter Space is able to offer the space and flexibility to enable us to expand our operations further if required.”
