In consolidating two of our smaller operations and merging the head office into the distribution centre at Stakehill Industrial Estate we will deliver an abundance of efficiencies that will ultimately benefit our customers.”

Property consultancy Gent Visick advised Romac Logistics and negotiated the leasehold acquisition.
