Council Leader Nick Kelly officially unveiled Haxter Court this week and got a behind the scenes look at Plymouth Argyle’s warehouse, which is now in one of the units.

The four flexible units at Haxter Court, Broadley Park, were built and all let out in the pandemic, showing just how much demand there is for the quality employment space in the city.

Plymouth City Council invested £2.4 million into the 1.65-acre Haxter Court plot which consists of two blocks, providing quality employment space for small, medium and large businesses to lease.

Council Leader Nick Kelly said: “It’s great to see businesses thriving in these units which were built and let during the pandemic – that I think is a considerable achievement and I’m delighted to see Argyle’s staff settling in so well here.

“We are being proactive as a Council and meeting a demand for high quality business space in the city. It’s good for local families, it’s good for the local jobs market and good for the supply chain.

“The sustainable specification of these buildings means the Greens can do their bit to help the city be greener.

Argyle Head of Marketing and Communications, Jamie Yabsley said: “We are delighted with our new warehouse at Haxter Court, the facilities are first class and have provided the perfect platform for our retail team to meet increased demand for our merchandise and products.

“The move has come at a really important time for us, with the pandemic changing a lot of people’s retail habits, we’ve seen a huge increase in our online demand, and having a great distribution centre has been crucial to providing an excellent and efficient service to our supporters.

“This growth has led to an opportunity for staff within our retail team to upskill and take on more responsibilities, as well as providing more working hours for staff.

“The club’s vision is to become a sustainable Championship club, and growing our revenues outside of the traditional match-day is a very important target for us. The increased retail provision, and facilities to match, is going to be a crucial part of that.”

Sustainability is key throughout the development. Elements include solar photo-voltaic roof panels, high levels of insulation, natural ventilation, LED lighting, efficient heating systems and EV charging points for vehicles.

The development consists of four flexible industrial units ranging from 3,750sqft to 22,500sqft and all four units are now let. The industrial estate at Roborough is already home to a significant number of companies including Cittal CSM and Burts Potato Chips.

Haxter Court will further extend the already well-established Broadley Park industrial estate to the north of Plymouth and is in close proximity to Derriford and the new Forder Valley Link Road.
