Offering four strategically located grain stores across Scotland and the north of England, Savills are marketing the former Alexander Inglis & Son agricultural facilities.
Seen as a significant sale, the four sites are for sale as a whole or in four lots. All are well located in terms of proximity to core cereal production regions in the UK and offer excellent accessibility to major trunk and motorway networks.
The combined storage capacity across the sites is circa 202,500t of grain with the principal focus on the drying and storage of malting barley.
There is also planning permission for a further grain store which would increase capacity by 18,000t granted at the Meadow Stores site.
All sites are serviced by grain drying and handling plants, site offices, laboratories and weighbridges, and could therefore be readily operated as standalone facilities. The grain dryers and the other integrated plant are included in the sale however mobile machinery, vehicles and the contents of the office and laboratory are available for purchase separately.
Due to the interest shown in the facilities and harvest fast approaching, a closing date for best offers has been set for 18 June
Savills representative Luke French said: “This is a rare opportunity to purchase well-equipped and extensive grain storage facilities across four strategic locations. The intention is to complete a sale prior to this harvest to enable a purchaser(s) to continue to service this important and valuable sector. Due to the interest shown in the facilities and harvest fast approaching, a closing date for best offers has been set for 18 June.”
Savills invites offers over £16m.
