Innes England has helped global last-mile delivery service Gorillas launch in Nottingham, allowing residents to get groceries delivered to their door in ten minutes.
Gorillas will operate from an industrial unit within the perimeter of Nottingham city centre, let by commercial property agent Innes England. The service allows users to order via an app and get thousands of products delivered to their address by Gorillas’ community of riders.
Innes England previously sold the substantial two-storey warehouse to its current landlord before finding a tenant for the unit on the landlord’s behalf. Innes England worked with property agents Raven Rose to let the space to Gorillas.
Ross Whiting, associate director at Innes England, said: “We were thrilled to offer this industrial unit to such an exciting business that will really add value to Nottingham.
“Having worked with the landlord previously when they purchased the property, it was great to help them further in finding a tenant to fill the space. Nottingham is full of attractive industrial properties that are perfectly suited to new and exciting businesses. We look forward to assisting more innovative and new businesses like Gorillas find new space in the Midlands and we wish them every success.
“As commercial property experts, we pride ourselves on finding buyers and tenants for industrial spaces, exceeding expectations and delivering excellent results for sellers and landlords.”
George Edgar, UK brand marketing manager at Gorillas, said: "We're really excited to start serving the residents of Nottingham with the best local brands and finest produce. We're looking forward to engaging with the local community and growing our presence in the city".
Raven Rose acted as commercial agent for Gorillas, to help the company to find the perfect location within Nottingham.
James Raven, partner at Raven Rose, said: “With UK bases in Nottingham and Manchester already, it was important that we worked with Gorillas to find the ideal space for its expansion into the Midlands.
“Innes England were great to work with and together we were able to secure the unit for Gorillas, to help the company continue to grow.”
