With the acquisition of the fourth warehouse Max 160, Perland achieved full ownership of Max Park Corby distribution park totalling 1,097,619sqft.
The 160,619sqft unit was purpose built in 2005 and had been in occupation by Staples UK until their recent relocation to a larger unit. It benefits from green energy produced by photovoltaic panels installed on the roof and a 30,000sqft mezzanine.
Perland leased the unit for a 10 year term with a break in year 5 to IForce – specialists in multi-channel retail logistics and supply chain management.
Other occupiers in Max Park are Smyths Toys and Bibby Distribution who have taken an additional 212,500sqft for a 10 year term.

UK supermarket chain Sainsbury's closed its Netto stores after abandoning a joint venture with Dansk Supermarked Group. The store in Thorne Road Retail Park has ceased trading at the end of July. Sainsbury's and its partner in the venture said the trial was ended because Netto needed rapid expansion and investment.
Mike Coupe, chief executive of Sainsbury's, said: "To be successful over the long-term, Netto would need to grow at pace and scale, requiring significant investment and the rapid expansion of the store estate in a challenging property market. Consequently, we have made the difficult decision not to pursue the opportunity further and instead focus on our core business and on the opportunities we will have following our proposed acquisition of Home Retail Group," he added
Sainsbury's teamed up with Danish retailer Dansk Supermarked Group (DSG) in 2014 to bring Netto back to the UK. The supermarket chain said although Netto was trading in line with expectations it could not ignore the evolving food retail market and the long-term strategies of both itself and its partner, DSG. It said its decision to end the trial was also based on trading data, customer insights and expansion costs.
Unit 3A (10,710sqft) benefits from A1 planning consent and is avalailable to let.
