First Industrial develop new logistics centre for Stanley Black & Decker

Stanley Black & Decker are expanding their UK operations with the development of a new Logistics Centre in Northampton by First Industrial.

Work has begun on creating this state-of-the-art facility for the global leader in construction and DIY tools a short distance from their current Logistics Centre on Brackmills Industrial Estate in a prime location for the transport network.

First Industrial have been appointed as the developer for a 235,000 sq. ft. warehouse and 18,000 sq. ft. of office space on a 11.7-acre site previously used by Stanley Black & Decker to support their operations in Northampton.

Now, they are developing the new Europe Logistics Centre on Caswell Road, scheduled to be operational in the final quarter of 2017.

This represents a £14 million investment by Stanley Black & Decker to drive forwards further growth and enhance their market-leader status.

Simon Jenkins, Development Director at First Industrial, commented: “This opportunity to work with Stanley Black & Decker enables us to demonstrate our ability once again to deliver high spec warehouses in key logistics locations.

“In what was a competitive tender process, it was our experience of undertaking projects of this nature that proved to be a decisive factor.”

He added: “The plot we are building on was originally purchased by Stanley Black & Decker in the early 1980s when a high-bay Distribution Centre was constructed

“This was used by Stanley Black & Decker until it was demolished in 2012, so this is the second Distribution Centre constructed by the group on this site.”

First Industrial have appointed Northampton-based Winvic as the main contractor for the nine-month project due for completion in mid-September.
