Keebles advises Xbite on plans to more than double warehouse operation

Keebles has advised Xbite over plans to more than double the e-commerce specialist’s warehousing operation.

Based in Barlborough, Derbyshire, Xbite ships products around the world. Due to rapid growth, it has agreed a multi-year lease on a 102,000 square foot warehouse at Markham Vale, near Chesterfield.

Led by Paul Russell, partner and member of the commercial property team, Keebles acted as legal adviser to Xbite to ensure the process ran smoothly.

Xbite will also reconfigure its 45,000 square foot Barlborough headquarters into an office for its 130 employees.

Russell said: “Xbite is a fast-growing firm that needed to expand its warehousing capacity to fulfil orders. We were pleased to act on their behalf to secure a site that is close to their head office and is also perfectly placed just off Junction 29A of the M1 for distribution.

Xbite, which has a turnover of £42 million, operates a variety of brands, including Shop4, Roov.co.uk, 365 Games, Pukkr, and Maison & White. It was founded in 2004 by Nick and Keely Whitehead to retail video games online.

Managing director Nick Whitehead said: “We have outgrown our much-loved unit at Barlborough and needed a warehouse that had the space and set up required to deliver our current and future objectives.”

“Markham Vale will enable us to deliver a better work environment for all our warehouse operatives.”

Rebecca Schofield, head of the Yorkshire industrial team at Knight Frank, acted as agent for Markham Vale.
