The former GKN automotive manufacturing site in the West Midlands has been sold.

DTZ, part of UGL Services, has sold the former GKN Driveline manufacturing facility site in Aldridge, Walsall.

The 347,125 sq ft manufacturing complex has been purchased by local investor for an undisclosed price.

The site, located on Middlemore Road West in Aldridge, comprises a multi bay industrial facility including production areas, ancillary workshops and a single storey office extension with car parking.

The main industrial facility comprises a four bay production workshop and is located two miles from junction 10 of the M6 motorway.

John Sambrooks, associate director in DTZ’s Industrial agency team, said: “Despite the tough commercial property market this manufacturing facility represented an opportunity to acquire a large site in the popular Aldridge area.”
