A warehousing firm says it has enjoyed "strong demand" over the last year as it snapped up a 124,000sq ft facility in Ipswich.
Ipswich and Felixstowe-based GMA Warehousing & Transport, which has more than 325,000sq ft of warehousing space as well as a 44-strong vehicle fleet, said Ipswich was the 'go-to' location for the distribution and fulfilment sector. The firm has now added a new facility in Leslie Road, Ipswich to its portfolio.
