Supply chain specialists Primeline Logistics have signed up for more than 10,200sq m (110,000sq ft) of space at the Hub Logistics Park in Clonee.

The deal is the first letting within phase two of the scheme and will see Primeline occupy Unit A02 on a long-term lease with five-yearly rent reviews. The company has agreed to pay an annual headline rent of €111.41 per sq m (€10.35 per sq ft).

A part of the wider Primeline Group, Primeline Logistics provide supply chain services to businesses operating in, or trading within, the island of Ireland. According to its website, the company's transport fleet of more than 200 vehicles operates out of some one million square feet of warehousing, serving more than 4,500 retailers and licensed premises.

Primeline’s new facility at the Hub Logistics Park comprises 10,340sq m (111,300sq ft) including 661sq m (7,115sq ft) two-storey offices. The property includes a 13m (43ft) clear internal height, an FM1 jointless floor, 10 dock levellers and a 50m (164ft) deep service yard with dual access which provides 50 truck parking spaces.
