Queenslie warehouse expansion planned following land sale

Queenslie warehouse expansion planned following land sale

Glasgow City Council has approved the off-market disposal of a 2.61 hectares site in Queenslie bounded to the north, east and west by Penston Road, to Alliance Disposables Limited (ADL).

The disposal will allow Alliance Disposals - which distributes catering equipment and catering disposables to the hotel, restaurant and hospitality sectors - to expand its operations and create 100 new jobs over the next decade.

ADL is a major local employer that has been steadily expanding since its creation in 2003, and its purchase of the land at this site will enable a 25,000-square-foot extension - for warehouse and distribution purposes - of its adjoining Scottish headquarters.

The purchase price for the site, an area of cleared land at Queenslie Industrial Estate, is £420,000.

A vole receptor site will be created by ADL after the presence of water voles was identified.

Councillor Ruairi Kelly, convener for Neighbourhood Services and Assets at Glasgow City Council, said: “It is fantastic to see Glasgow businesses looking to expand and grow in the East End. The sale of this land will allow ADL to increase the size of their operation and importantly, employ more people locally, creating up to 100 new jobs.”
