Haulage firm expands footprint in Walsall

Written by on 06/04/2022

UK haulage firm Turners (Soham) Ltd is gearing up for growth after doubling its space in Walsall.

The family-owned business has bought the remaining 4.51 acres at Middlemore Lane, in Aldridge, to enable it to meet increasing demand for its transportation services.

Turners (Soham) Ltd operates over 2,500 Trucks in UK and Europe. It specialises in temperature-controlled transport and warehousing and container logistics for goods including food, fuel and building products.

Paul Day, managing director of Turners (Soham) Ltd said: “We have won several new storage and distribution clients recently, so we’re delighted to have acquired this much-needed space at our existing Walsall base.

“Middlemore Lane is in a strategic location offering us easy access to the M6 motorway network and there is an excellent local labour supply.”

The land – which is close to both Aldridge and Walsall town centres – also comes with planning permission for two units suitable for office and industrial use.

Kenny Allan, director of industrial agency at KWB who secured the deal, said: “It was a pleasure to deal with Turners (Soham) Ltd on behalf of my client PSST and I look forward to seeing their business thrive further in the Midlands.

“The fact that I am advising on two major industrial schemes around the corner from each other demonstrates a booming market, which has been sparked by a surge in online deliveries following the pandemic and a shortage of space.”
