Occupiers are now open and trading following completion of warehouse and storage facilities at the Westpark 26 development in Somerset.
The warehouse and storage facility (Block 5Z) opened just before Christmas and has seen Fox Self Storage taking occupation alongside Chudley International Removals, relocating from Ilminster.
The bespoke build on a 15,200 sq ft plot is part of the Fox Group’s expansion plans and has created and retained 30 skilled and semi-skilled jobs, while also providing a self-storage facility to meet local and regional demand.
Summerfield Commercial worked on the project, with commercial director Ben Trickey 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.”
Fox Group was founded in 1971 and the latest development, its eighth site in the UK, was confirmed during the company’s 50th year of trading as a family business.
Paul Fox, managing director of Fox Group, added: “Having taken the completed building back in August last year, I am pleased to have opened the new facility; a very high specification new build on the prestigious and growing site of Westpark 26.”
