A firm which operates a share and re-use system of kegs for the brewing industry, has taken a 147, 015 sq ft unit at PLP MK in Milton Keynes.

Kegstar has taken a lease on MK 147, one of 10 units at the 1.06 million sq ft development, the UK’s first industrial and logistics park to be net zero carbon in construction.

PLP UK Logistics Venture (UKLV 1), which owns the scheme, says its close proximity to the city centre means occupiers have some of the best leisure amenities in the market.

Edward Jackson, development director for PLP, said: “Welcoming Kegstar to PLP MK is an important step in the evolution of the business park as it represents the start of a new community and a new economic ecosystem within Milton Keynes. We look forward to being a part of Kegstar’s growth plans and to welcoming more customers to PLP MK very soon.”

Bryan Place, Kegstar’s president, said: “Brewers are blown away when they tour our operations in the US as these facilities are the most advanced in the world. Our new facility is just the latest step in our expansion across the UK and Europe.”

PLP was advised by Savills. DTRE advised Kegstar.
