95,207 sq ft

Warehouse facility - Owens Group investment creates 80 new jobs in Cardiff


The ABP property team at The Port of Cardiff has completed a long-term lease of a 95,207 sq ft distribution centre with Owens Group. 

This new partnership with Owens Group will attract investment and around 80 jobs to the region. It is an example of how ABP’s unique network of ports in South Wales can offer the right facilities to enable business growth and drive increases in operational efficiency. 

Ian Owen, Managing Director, Owens Group, said: “This is another exciting development during our 50th years of business. This new super site is ideally located at the Port of Cardiff and will assist long-term deals agreed with key blue chip customers, further securing and enhancing our company brand and customer service offering.” 


With direct links to the national rail network, easy access to the M4 motorway and direct sea access, the Port of Cardiff provides multimodal facilities and easy access to the nearby urban conurbations and Cardiff city centre. 

Helen Thomas, ABP Head of Property, Wales and Short Sea Ports, said: “We are delighted to have completed one of the largest industrial lettings deals in Cardiff over the past 12 months within such a swift timeframe and look forward to supporting Owens Group’s business growth going forward. 

“ABP is known as the leading ports group in the UK with a network of 21 ports across Britain but we are more than this – we also deliver commercial property solutions for manufacturers and supply chain businesses locally, nationally and globally.”
