London, 10 July 2024 – GLP, a leading global business builder, owner, developer, and operator of logistics real estate, digital infrastructure, renewable energy, and related technologies, has today announced that it has signed a new lease agreement with Bleckmann, a logistics provider for companies in the fashion and lifestyle industry, for its 587,662 SQ FT MPC 3 unit at Magna Park Corby.

A milestone for Bleckmann, MPC 3 is now the largest building in Bleckmann’s portfolio, and now the third occupied building with GLP, with the first two in Magna Park Lutterworth, bringing the total occupied space with GLP to over 965,000 SQ FT.

Founded in 1862, Bleckmann has evolved from a transport company into a full supply chain solutions provider with a specific expertise in e-fulfilment solutions in the fashion and lifestyle industry.

Mark Van Onna, General Manager Real Estate at Bleckmann commented: “The combination of availability, capacity and sustainability was unique and perfectly matched our requirements. The 588,000 SQ FT footprint of the building and an internal clear height of 18 meters, enables us to utilize the cubic meters of the building in a very efficient way. With a BREEAM Outstanding certificate, this is a future proof building which we have added to the Bleckmann UK portfolio. This is our third transaction with GLP in the UK which clearly demonstrates our professional partnership.”

MPC 3 incorporates a wide range of innovation, technology, efficiency, sustainability, and intelligent logistical thinking. This includes rainwater harvesting, two 50m wide secure service yards, a clear eaves height of 18m and an array of energy saving features such as LED lighting.

The unit has been built to net zero carbon standards in construction and fitted out with recycled and recyclable materials. The warehouse has achieved a BREEAM Outstanding and an EPC A+ rating and is sensitively designed to maintain local biodiversity.

James Atkinson, Development Director at GLP commented: “Magna Park Corby’s importance as a logistics hub is strengthened by this significant agreement with Bleckmann. Their decision to establish a presence at Magna Park Corby recognises the UK as being a crucial growth market for their business. We continue to see strong demand for modern best-in-class, sustainable logistics warehouses and are delighted to see Magna Park Corby continuing to grow.“

Magna Park Corby is fast becoming an established logistics hub and will be home to Nike’s new logistics campus and national supply chain hub following the signing of a lease agreement announced in May. All customers benefit from the site’s industry-leading sustainability standards.
