New 15,000 sq. ft. removals and storage opens at Westpark 26 in Wellington

Summerfield Commercial is delighted to announce that following completion of a warehouse and storage facilities at the Westpark 26 development for Fox Group, the occupiers are now open and trading.

The warehouse and storage facility (Block 5Z) opened officially just before Christmas at the growing Westpark 26 development and has seen Fox Self Storage taking occupation alongside Chudley International Removals, relocating from Ilminster,

The bespoke build on a 15,200 sq ft (1,412 sq m) warehouse and storage facility is part of the Fox Group’s expansion plans and has created and retained 30 new skilled and semi-skilled jobs, whilst also providing a self-storage facility to meet local and regional demand.

Ben Trickey, Commercial Director at Summerfield, said: “The creation of jobs is always a welcome part of any new commercial development; enhancing the local economy further and enabling the continued growth of the Fox Group.  I am delighted that Paul Fox entrusted Summerfield Commercial with his latest development here in Somerset and wish him and the team all the best with this new facility.”

Westpark 26 has established itself as a prime modern business park, with a range of amenities, serving both the Wellington/Taunton area and the wider M5 corridor.  The 300,000 sq. ft. (27,870 sq. m) site features industrial warehouses, distribution depots, workshops, trade counters, offices and small employment units with planning consent in place for further uses including logistics, manufacturing and health, as well as frontage and roadside options.

Summerfield is working on the next terraced units to deliver on Westpark, with unit sizes ranging from approx. 1,800 sq ft up to approx. 18,800 sq ft, and is currently registering interested parties.
