MEP Hire joins Segro Park Rainham

MEP Hire has taken a 23,800 sq ft unit at Segro Park Rainham. The company has signed a 15 year lease and will take occupation in early spring 2018. It is the first large industrial letting at Segro Park Rainham, which will provide a further four large industrial units once complete.

The new MEP Hire facility will be well-located adjacent to the A13 and within easy reach of the M25 and Central London. It will support over 30 jobs, and is part of the first phase of the East Plus regeneration programme which could create up to 4,400 jobs for local people in East London.

Since launching in partnership with the Greater London Authority in 2015, Segro has made significant progress in bringing jobs and attracting businesses to the previously underdeveloped area. In January, the developer announced that several local businesses have taken space at its Enterprise Quarter, also at Segro Park Rainham, which offers 42 flexible units for start-ups and smaller businesses.

“The fact we have secured this long-term commitment before construction is complete underlines there is dearth of high quality industrial space in East London. We look forward to working with the Greater London Authority and key stakeholders to bring forward further development to meet the needs of retail, logistics and manufacturing businesses in 2018.” East Plus comprises 86 acres of brownfield land across Newham, Barking & Dagenham and Havering, and is set to deliver 1.4 million sq ft of modern industrial space in total over the next 10 years,„ said Alan Holland, Segro’s Business Unit Director Greater London.

“Segro Park Rainham is an excellent location from which to expand our London business, given the amount of construction activity in East London. We look forward to opening the facility in spring 2018,“ Carl Huntington, Managing Director of MEP Hire.
