A logistics firm has made the move to a 90,000 sq ft unit in Daventry.

Arcese UK, which has its UK headquarters in Tilbury, Essex, has relocated its Midlands distribution hub to , Fawsley Drive, part of Heartlands Business Park in Daventry.

The industrial agency team from commercial real estate company DTZ agreed the deal on behalf of the former tenant Sims Group UK.

The 89,139 sq ft property underwent a complete refurbishment after Sims vacated the premises earlier this year.

Arcese’s move to Daventry is an expansion from their former premises in Crick and is based on the strategic motorway connections the Daventry area has.

Gemma Constantinou of DTZ’s industrial agency team, said: “We are delighted to have agreed this letting within such a short time frame of the refurbishment completing.

“As part of our marketing strategy, DTZ expanded the planning use class to encompass storage and distribution use which, together with the high quality refurbishment, appealed to Arcese which was seeking premises in Daventry.”

Keith Luetchford of Arcese, said: “The building was ideally suited for us being within 1 km of three of our major clients to service them for distribution and storage.

“The site also gives us the ability to park over 80 trailers within the secure yard area, which is a real benefit. We are sure that this facility will help us further the development our business and aid local employment in the area.”
