Logicor has secured a new 10-year lease with a leading international packaging company at Widnes 108, taking the Platform portfolio, that Logicor asset manages, to 100% occupancy up from 89.7% in just 12 months.
Logicor assumed management of the 4.25 million sq ft portfolio in October 2020 and has since welcomed AX to L49 in Lichfield and Super Smart Services to Lichfield L117 and Worcester 163. Widnes 108 totals 107,222 sq ft of Grade A speculatively built business space which the new occupier will use to produce sustainable packaging in support of their growing ecommerce customer base.
