Tees have recently advised their long standing client, Woodland Group (Woodland), on its significant purchase of a warehouse facility in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire.
Woodland is a global logistic, freight forwarding and supply chain specialist, and acquiring the facility on Low Mill Lane in Dewsbury further establishes their presence in Yorkshire. At approximately 35,000 sq ft, the new facility is a significant base from which Woodland can continue to deliver their bespoke supply chain offerings to clients both locally and further afield.
Daniel Fairs, Partner at Tees, handled the purchase for Woodland. Daniel worked closely with Andrew Harrison, Solicitor at Tees, who took control of the day to day running of the transaction. There were several key issues identified during the transaction which needed to be addressed. However, Daniel and Andrew worked proactively with Woodland to progress the transaction from initial instruction to completion in under eight weeks.
Daniel Fairs commented:
“It is always a pleasure working with Woodland Group, our mutual understanding of each other’s ways of working – gained over many years working together – enables us to handle transactions quickly, collaboratively and – most importantly – efficiently. Andrew Harrison was key in driving this transaction forward from a Tees perspective. Both Andrew Harrison and I hope to continue to support Woodland Group as they continue to grow their already very successful business in the logistics and supply chain sector.”
Andy Papps, the Head of Corporate Services at Woodland Group, has commented on the acquisition of the Dewsbury facility:
“We’re very pleased to be able to acquire our Dewsbury facility to further support our commitment to investing into the local community and opportunities for growth. Our strategic development delivers sustainable supply chain solutions for local businesses to expand, and brings international businesses into the area as a central hub to distribute across the globe”
