Amazon Snaps Up Warehousing Space in Staffs

The recent takeover of a huge warehouse space in Rugeley by online retail juggernaut Amazon has been welcomed by the local community, who expect it to lead to the creation of 700 new jobs.

The 700,000 square foot warehouse, near the Staffordshire town’s power station, has been unoccupied for some time, but it is believed that the recent acquisition by Amazon of the building will lead to a new lease of life for the warehousing space.

The Flair building is set on a 40-acre site and the local paper revealed that is “the largest remaining speculatively built industrial shed in the UK.”

Amazon, which is growing by 20 per cent every year, is keeping the terms of the deal under wraps, but locals believe that the company has signed a 15-year lease on the warehouse, paying some £4 per square foot.
