Sweets manufacturer signs for Middlewich warehouse

Tritax Symmetry has exchanged contracts with Love Hearts maker Swizzels Matlow for the delivery of a 158,000 sq ft facility at Ma6nitude in Middlewich, Cheshire.

The warehouse will form part of the 460,000 sq ft first phase at the business park.

The facility will be an expansion of Swizzels’ manufacturing capability, and the company said will involve a significant additional investment in new plant and machinery.

David Nuttall, development director at Tritax Symmetry, said: “Bringing a well-respected and long-established company to Ma6nitude is a huge coup for both the scheme and the region. Swizzels’ decision to choose Ma6nitide as the location for such a significant investment in growing their business emphasises the quality of the site and their confidence in our ability to deliver this new manufacturing facility. This is also excellent news for Middlewich too, bringing a range of good quality jobs to the area.”

A planning application is due to be submitted imminently.

The professional team acting on Ma6nitude includes AEW Architects, and Avison Young as planner, as well as CMS, RPS, Shepherd Gilmour, Hannan Associates and Utility Connections.

B8 Real Estate, Legat Owen and Savills are joint letting agents.

Savills, Beaumont Lord and Land Law represented Swizzels Matlow on the deal.

Located off Junction 18 of the M6, Ma6nitude has plots from between three and 53 acres, allowing for the construction of units between 40,000 sq ft and 638,000 sq ft.
