A MULTI-NATIONAL storage firm has acquired a new base in Nursling.

Titan Boxtainer Ltd, part of the Titan Containers group, has let an empty site in Nursling Industrial Estate.

The land, which is owned by Tesco Stores Limited and lies adjacent to the supermarket giant’s distribution centre, is to be used by Titan as an open storage depot for its shipping containers.

Titan had previously used third-party depots in Totton, but bosses have now decided to acquire their own site.

Phil Brewer, UK director for the firm, said: “We chose Nursling because the site was perfectly situated for our business, close to the M27/271 junction and the port of Southampton. It will be convenient for liner shipping, container transport operators and other related businesses.”
