Ecommerce fulfilment company Huboo has signed a new lease for 63,900 sq ft of warehouse space in Bristol’s More+ scheme to support its UK expansion.
The Bristol-based firm is one of the fastest-growing companies in the UK, renowned for its intuitive ‘hub model’ technology, which enables online merchants of all sizes to access a full end-to-end fulfilment operation in a matter of minutes.
Huboo had already secured Unit 2 at the Canmoor’s site in Central Park last year, through its on-going partnership with BNP Paribas Real Estate. The More+ facility is located in close proximity to the brand new Junction 1 M49, M4 and M5, giving it unrivalled access to the South West and Wales.
“The introduction of Unit 3 is a core part of our strategic plans to scale globally and came in response to soaring market demand” explained Peter Edgar, chief financial officer at Huboo.
“It enables us to support the surrounding regional economy and double our flagship site’s overall warehousing footprint. It also allows us to significantly grow both our B2B and B2C customer bases, while retail businesses will continue to receive the same unparalleled level of service that they’ve come to expect from Huboo.”
This latest warehouse expansion follows Huboo’s leasing of its 106,000 sq ft facility at Chippenham’s St Modwen Park logistics hub, resulting in 400 jobs being generated for the local area.
Josh Gunn, head of the Bristol office and industrial & logistics south west director at BNP Paribas Real Estate, added: “The strength of the regions is driving competition amongst occupiers for high quality warehouses in excellent distribution locations.
“To allow aspirational businesses like Huboo to expand and grow, greater supply must be addressed across the South West market. More+ provides an excellent solution for those desired occupiers, adding to Huboo’s established logistics facilities throughout the UK and Europe.”
