Everards for Optimus Point

Wilson Bowden Developments has today submitted a planning application for Everards brewery, detailing a new 30,000 sq ft warehouse facility as part of long term relocation plans. The company hopes to spend £3.5 million on a 2.4-acres site at the new Optimus Point industrial park.

Stephen Gould, managing director of Everards Brewery, said:

"Optimus Point is an ideal location for Everards' new warehouse and distribution solution being so well located at the M1 and A46 intersection."

"We are delighted to have agreed terms with Wilson Bowden Developments to purchase a brand new 30,000 sq ft unit within 10 minutes drive of our new Everards Meadows Brewery site."

"It will provide a great working environment for our staff and an efficient new logistics facility. The acquisition of Optimus Point is an exciting component of the next phase in Everards' history."

Up to 2,000 jobs could eventually be created at Optimus Point, in a mix of warehousing, offices, industrial units and shops on the 65-acre greenfield site.

Nick Richardson, managing director of Wilson Bowden Developments, added:

"We are delighted to welcome Everards to Optimus Point.

"We have seen a significant growth in the level of enquiries for this strategic employment site over the last nine months, and Everards' proposal will represent one of the first occupiers for the site.

"We are pleased to work with Everards in helping their ambition for growth in the local Leicestershire area."
