New Developments Could Create Up To 700 Warehouse Jobs In Stoke

A huge new development could create up to 700 warehouse jobs in Stoke-on-trent, according to developer St. Modwen.

St. Modwen is working on six warehouses across two separate sites in Stoke, with the first wave of completion to be finished by March.

Commenting on the two developments, St. Modwen’s senior construction manager, Steven Smith, said: “With the rapid acceleration of our industrial and logistics efforts, the North Staffordshire region is seeing plenty of concurrent development and we are pleased to be providing new opportunities for the people and businesses of Stoke-on-Trent.”

The company’s development director, Stuart Murray, also commented, saying: “To have two projects simultaneously under construction in the city evidences our confidence in Stoke-on-Trent and St. Modwen’s long-standing commitment to the North Staffordshire area.”

“The developments at both St. Modwen Park Stoke South and St. Modwen Park Stoke Central will provide a range of unit sizes, which we are confident will prove attractive to business occupiers at two of the region’s foremost logistics locations. We look forward to their completion and occupation,” added Mr Murray.

Councillor Janine Bridges of Stoke-on-Trent City Council, welcomed the news, saying: “The old Trentham Lakes site has been transformed over the past 30 years and our city is also continuing to see development on the Etruria Valley site, which is a key part of the area’s successful Ceramic Valley Enterprise Zone.”

“The fact that these sites have been able to attract major companies including Amazon, Screwfix and Pets at Home shows how attractive Stoke-on-Trent is as a place to invest. This supports our wider strategy to transform Stoke-on-Trent and see even more job creation and more benefits for the local economy,” added Councillor Bridges.
