Stoneacre Motor Group has signed a 15-year lease at St. Modwen Park Doncaster

Stoneacre Motor Group has signed a 15-year lease on a 65,100sq-ft Parts and Logistic Hub in Doncaster.

Property developer St. Modwen has attracted the Thorne-based AM100 car retail group to its 27-acre at St. Modwen Park Doncaster industrial and logistics development in the South Yorkshire town.

The location is already home to a mixture of engineering, automotive and logistics occupiers including Bosch and DB Schenker and is Located on a major arterial route between the M18 and the A1 – just eight miles from Doncaster Sheffield Airport.

Stoneacre’s new Parts and Logistic Hub is part of a “one stop shop” philosophy from the group to support its 23 car franchise partners and deliver new standards of parts service to motor trade customers across Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire.

Stoneacre aftersales director, Gerry George, said: “It was important for us to find a new home that could cater for our business needs while offering a high-quality and well-located warehousing and logistics space. 

“St. Modwen Park Doncaster has done exactly this, and we are looking forward to being located here.”

St. Modwen Park Doncaster is now in its third and final phase of development.

The delivery of more than 108,000sq-ft of space across three new units was completed in February 2020, bringing the total amount of new space at the scheme to almost 250,000sq-ft.

Jonathan Green, asset management director at St. Modwen Industrial and Logistics, said: “It’s fantastic to be welcoming Stoneacre to the line-up of incredible businesses that have based themselves at St. Modwen Park Doncaster.

“While it has a national presence, Stoneacre has a loyal and established customer base in Doncaster and we’re pleased it has chosen St. Modwen Park Doncaster to further support its business operations.”

Rebecca Schofield, partner at Knight Frank, said: “St. Modwen Park Doncaster is an attractive location for occupiers, being located just off Wheatley Hall Road, the main arterial route through the town making it a perfect location for warehousing and industrial use.”
