Japan Centre opens new London HQ

Japan Centre has taken up a 20-year lease for a 56,711 sq ft unit at SEGRO’s Premier Park, Park Royal.

The unit, which will be in use by summer 2018, will be Japan Centre’s UK headquarters and will be used for a range of activity, including offices, warehousing, distribution and hot kitchens for food preparation.

Already an existing customer of SEGRO, the Japan Centre will be relocating from its current base at SEGRO’s Victoria Industrial Estate, where it occupies in total 35,000 sq ft across seven units, to Unit B Premier Park.

The Japan Centre supplies the rapidly expanding chain of Shoryu Ramen restaurants across London and the South East - including their new location in the Westgate Centre in Oxford and the Westfield extension in London.

It also sells a range of Japanese foods and goods to customers across the continent from its own ecommerce website.

Tak Tokumine, CEO, Japan Centre and Shoryu Ramen, said: “We could not have grown our business in this way without the support and assistance of SEGRO.

“Since 2010 we have leased various unit from SEGRO and now we have relocated to new bespoke warehousing, kitchen and online facilities at Premier Park, Park Royal.

“We are looking forward to continuing our good working relationship with SEGRO for many years to come.”

Alan Holland, Business Unit Director for Greater London, SEGRO added: “We are delighted to welcome Japan Centre to Premier Park and to play a key part in their evolving business success.

“It is a great example of how we are able to support our customers’ growth by providing well located high quality light industrial property.”
