Lincoln business park scoops up major ice cream firm

Major international ice cream and confectionery distributor NIC is opening its central UK deport at St Modwen Park in Lincoln off the A46.

The UK’s largest ice cream and confectionary ingredients supplier will occupy a 64,000 sq ft unit on a 10-year lease.

NIC, which is part of Norwegian food giant Orkla Foods, has significantly expanded in recent years with the acquisition of several UK based companies involved in manufacturing confectionary.

It will make St. Modwen Park its central UK depot. It will create 10 jobs in the area.

International courier, parcel and express mail division of German logistics company Deutsche Post DHL is occupying a 32,000 sq ft of space at the site on a 15-year lease.

The deals with DHL and NIC mean that phase one of St. Modwen Park Lincoln is fully let, just a few months after completion.

St.Modwen secured detailed planning consent for a further 75,000 sq ft of space earlier this year, forming the site’s next phase of development.

The 70-acre business park was originally granted planning consent for more than 960,000 sq ft of space, part of which had already been developed with occupiers including Apogee, Turbine Efficiency and DPDUK.
