First Occupier Secured for London Logistics Hub

London, 19 September 2023: Cain International (‘Cain’), the privately held investment firm, has secured Sahara AV as the first occupier for its last mile logistics hub, Blueprint Erith, London.

The letting is for the largest of four units at the south-east London scheme, which Cain acquired in 2022 from Firethorn as part of its wider logistics platform strategy. As part of the acquisition, Firethorn is acting as the asset and development manager for Blueprint Erith.

Sahara AV, which is part of the Boxlight Corporation, specialises in distributing cutting edge AV solutions and software to the education, health, public and corporate sectors, and has signed a 15-year lease on the unit, spanning 31,790 sq. ft.

Situated within the Erith / Belvedere Industrial Zone, the site provides access to the M25 and South Circular Road in under 15 minutes. In addition to its modern specification, the warehouse and Grade A mezzanine office spaces are fitted with sustainable design features and modern welfare facilities, with a net-zero carbon construction and BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating.

Tim Brazier, Senior Vice President at Cain International, said: “This is a key letting for the London logistics scheme and reflects continuing occupier demand for modern and high-quality distribution spaces in and around the M25. Working closely with Firethorn, we’re committed to creating modern, flexible and sustainable solutions for occupiers, which meet their operational requirements whilst making a positive regional impact.”

Shaun Marklew, Chief Technology Officer at Boxlight Corporation, added: “As a leading distributor, Sahara AV provides unrivalled support to a network of resellers across the U.K., which continues to grow. Blueprint Erith’s central location, modern specification and sustainability credentials will ensure we are in prime position to boost our capacity and pursue further expansion.”
