St Modwen Logistics has completed its 190,000 sq ft industrial development of Viables Business Park at Basingstoke.

The £18.1 million manufacturing space, comprising three buildings and two retail pods, will be used by LevertonHELM – a joint venture between Leverton Lithium and HELM AG. The buildings are EPC A rated, include rainwater harvesting, EV charging points and PV solar panels.

The firm makes battery grade Lithium chemicals.

Polly Troughton, managing director at St. Modwen Logistics, said: “At St. Modwen Logistics we are committed to providing our customers with the space and support they need to succeed.

“Working closely with the local authority, we are proud to be investing in the redevelopment of the site, which supports LevertonHELM’s continued growth and expansion, helping create local jobs and generating economic growth in and around Basingstoke.”

Hollis Hockley was joint letting agent with Savills and London Clancy.

Andrew Newman, partner for Hollis Hockley, said: “It’s great that we have been able to work with St. Modwen Logistics, LevertonHELM and the council to secure such a fantastic result.

“LevertonHELM has secured a prime campus on which to manufacture lithium and the redevelopment will not only generate revenue, but also bring more jobs directly and indirectly to the Borough.”
