The Shrewsbury-based company has won the deal from Telford & Wrekin Council to build a new 67,500 sq ft unit on the Hortonwood West Industrial Estate in Telford.

It completed a shell-only unit on the same site late last year, and has now been appointed to build the unit for the other site, including offices, a canteen, warehouse, service yard, five dock levellers and car parking.

James West, head of Morris Property, said: “We are delighted to have been appointed to build the new unit at Hortonwood West and to continue delivering innovative solutions for the site.

“We are proud of our work at Hortonwood and pleased that it was well received by Telford and Wrekin Council. We look forward to working with them again on this and future developments.”

Works are underway and the unit is due for completion in late September.
