Our HQ facility, with its strong prominence and profile, provides excellent flexibility given its size, configuration and office content. A dedicated self-contained yard with staff parking gives this facility additional security and operational efficiencies, whilst The Hub also benefits from a range of warehouse access via four dock level and four floor level loading.”
