The deal, which is the largest logistics letting of 2018, comprises 12,494sqm (135,000 sqft) of high-quality distribution. The 12metre-high modern warehouse facility is situated on a secure 6.45-acre, self-contained site and is just 1.5km from SONAS’ current distribution centre in Northwest Business Park Phase 3.
The move represents significant investment for the business which has seen exceptional growth over the past number of years. The company’s expansion in recent years had led to it operating from two separate sites with an additional 40,000sqft feeder warehouse in addition to the company’s 50,000sqft distribution, sales and showroom facility in NW3.
The decision to move the entire operation was taken following recent investment from MML Capital Partners as SONAS gears up for further expansion.
“The move represents significant investment for the business which has seen exceptional growth over the past number of years.”
As the largest provider of bathroom products in Ireland, the company has achieved a market leading position by consistently offering superior service and order fulfilment to its customers. As construction output in Ireland continues to expand SONAS is extremely well positioned to service this growth and continue to meet its customer requirements in the RMI, New House Build and Commercial Sectors.
The company will commence its transition to the new facility throughout Q4 2018 with an expected completion date of early January 2019. Further information on the move will be communicated to customers and suppliers over the coming months.
