Contract awarded for power tool warehouse
Midas Construction has been appointed to build a new warehouse and headquarters for leading power tools company STIHL.
The project will see the creation of a new 11,285m2 purpose-designed facility close to the A331 in Camberley, Surrey.
The investment is said to be a response to STIHL’s sustained UK growth and it will allow the company to move from its existing premises in the Yorktown area of Camberley.
The Southampton-based Southern Division of Midas Construction, part of the Midas Group, is expected to begin preparatory works on site this month.
The project will deliver an automated industrial warehouse for storage of machines and spares with ancillary office and workshop space, as well as a retail display area and staff facilities.
Steve Lee, Director of Midas Construction’s Southern Division said: “We are delighted to be working with STIHL and to have been entrusted to deliver this important project.
“As well as being a high-profile international brand, STIHL has been an important local employer in Surrey for the last four decades and we are pleased to be playing a role in this major investment, which secures its future in the area.”
