Manchester was at the centre of the Industrial Revolution and was once regarded as the most important manufacturing centre in the world. With the development of the Manchester Ship Canal it became known as ‘Warehouse City’ as cargo was stored ready to transport to the rest of the UK. Traditional industry remains exceptionally strong in Manchester today, with large amounts of high-quality units available.
Global companies like Adidas, Proctor and Gamble, and Kellogg’s use the city as a distribution hub for the UK. Motorways lead from Manchester to give access to England and Scotland within a few hours and the international airport brings in cargo from overseas.
This means it’s an excellent time to be looking at industrial property in Manchester. Tracking down the ideal premises can be tough, though. It isn’t easy to find warehouses or manufacturing units of the perfect size or workshops that combine adequate storage with room for machinery and equipment. You can easily slip into compromising on your ideal location, to the detriment of your business.
