East West Storage lease space to Scottish Power

Scotland’s leading energy company has agreed terms with East West Storage to lease additional space at Westway Park.

East West Storage has signed-up for Block J, which extents to 84,000 sq ft on a ten-year lease at a rental of circa £3 per sq ft.

The premises have recently undergone extensive refurbishment, funded jointly by East West Storage and park owner, Moorfield Group.

East West Storage has been re-awarded the storage contract for Scottish Power and has been a Westway occupier for the past 5 years.

Raymond Murray, Director of East West Storage said: “We are delighted to continue to provide storage space for Scottish Power on a longer-term basis.”  “We have benefited from a Westway location for some time and feel that it continues to provide us with the ideal property solution.”

Andrew McCracken, of joint agent Jones Lang LaSalle agrees: “The quality of space and location was key to East West Storage, along with flexible terms. Westway offers high quality accommodation within a 24-hour secure environment and continues to appeal to a wide range of occupiers in the west of Scotland.”

Mark Holmes of Moorfield said: “This deal underlines East West’s commitment to Westway.  We are always seeking to improve Westway and remain committed to providing the right product and terms to meet occupier’s business needs.”

Westway offers excellent connectivity to the whole of Central Scotland, with Junction 27 of the M8 only 3 minutes drive away.  Glasgow International Airport lies immediately adjacent and Prestwick International Airport is only 42 miles away.  Westway benefits from having its own private dock facility on the White Cart Water which accesses the River Clyde. This provides an alternative shipping solution particularly for large products that are unsuitable for transport by road.

Other occupiers include Doosan Babcock, Star Refrigeration, Malcolm Logistics and Steel Engineering. Westway joint agents are Jones Lang LaSalle and James Barr.
