The former Saica Pack corrugated cardboard packaging site in Ellesmere Port is to go on the market, with the company consolidating operations at its Wigan site.

Property group Eddisons has been appointed, with joint agent Vail Williams, to sell the 200,000 sq ft factory, which stands on a 14 acre site on the M53 motorway close to the Vauxhall car plant.

The Saica Pack site, which was originally part of the Bowater Containers paper factory, is also adjacent to the 42 acre Link Logistics Park, currently under construction and due to launch state-of-the art warehouse space early next year.

Eddisons director Robert Diggle, who is leading on the sale of the site said: “This is a prime site at the heart of the North West logistics network. It was originally built in the late 1950s and its location, between the M53 and the Manchester Ship Canal, and easily accessible from Liverpool, Manchester and the national road network, was as key then as it is now.

“Sites of this size and pedigree come on the market rarely and, with demand for quality warehouse and industrial space currently reaching critical levels across the North West, we expect a buyer for the former Saica site to be found very rapidly.”

The 200,000 sq ft factory site also incorporates two-storey office accommodation and space for car and trailer parking.
