Schmitz Cargobull to open Manchester manufacturing site

Global trailer maker Schmitz Cargobull is opening a factory in Manchester to manufacture units to serve the UK and Ireland, creating up to 50 jobs.

 

The deal was sealed after Knight Frank and South Street Capital let the first phase of refurbished space at Southmoor Park, Wythenshawe to the German-based firm.

 

The global trailer company has taken the whole of Block A – a high bay facility offering 95,040 sq ft – on a 10-year lease with a five-year break.

 

Paul Avery, from Schmitz Cargobull, said: “After many weeks of searching for the right property, Knight Frank introduced us to Southmoor and it ticked all of our boxes, size, access, location etc, and I am really pleased that we able to complete our tenancy agreement in good time.

 

Production at the 7,500 sq m facility is scheduled to start this summer with a capacity of 50 units per week including freepost curtainsiders and box van semi-trailers.

 

The site will also contain a 1,000 sq m spare parts warehouse for local supply and by the end of this year will become the main base for the complete Schmitz Cargobull UK team.
