Manufacturer reveals major expansion plans
By Matt Hall and Andrew Merrell | 6th February 2019
A sports nutrition business has announced plans for a new base in Gloucester.
Set up in 2007 and with 30 staff based in the county, SCI-MX Nutrition has gained approval to add signage ahead of its move in March to Gateway 12 Business Park, in the south of the city.
Owned by food manufacturing giants, Samworth Brothers, SCI-MX Nutrition already has a base at Gloucester Business Park in Brockworth.
The new premises will see its distribution centre expand from 18,000 sq ft to over 40,000 sq ft.
Described by commercial property specialists Ash and Co as a "brand new, high quality industrial and distribution space", the new base is situated adjacent to Waterwells Business Park.
Simon McKeag, from Ash and Co Chartered Surveyors said: "The high quality accommodation provided at Gateway 12 and accessible location in close proximity to the M5 motorway made Gateway 12 the perfect choice for SCI-MX when they were considering their options.
"The final Phase comprising 3 units from 24,000 sq ft to 67,000 sq ft has now been completed and are ready for occupation."
Existing occupiers at the business park include ProCook, Warwick Fabrics and The Book Depository/Amazon.
Designed by county architects, Roberts Limbrick, the facility is made up of warehouse space, a large concrete loading yard, office space and a large car parking area.
From its existing distribution centre, SCI-MX serves more than 300 customers in 36 countries, and is "dedicated to helping consumers in the pursuit of an active lifestyle by providing them with advanced protein, muscle building and weight management solutions via our expert formulas specifically tailored to their goals."
