Capita Records Management boosts presence at Darlington’s Lingfield Point

A national data management and storage firm has expanded its North East presence.

Capita Records Management has agreed a new deal to operate from nearly 400,000 sq ft of warehouse space at Darlington’s Lingfield Point.

Bosses say the increase – up from 336,700 sq ft – will help the organisation cater for rising demand and ensure millions of records and documents are stored safely for public and private sector clients.

Anthony May, managing director of Capita Records Management, said: “We continue to see strong demand for our record and data services, and our investment in expanding capacity at Lingfield Point will play a key role in growing our business going forward.

“We are proud to reaffirm our commitment to this region and its workforce.”

David Swan, director of Mottisfont Capital, asset manager for Lingfield Point, added: “We continue to see considerable interest from potential tenants as demand for good quality industrial and office accommodation continues, as we ease out of lockdown and businesses begin to ramp up their operations.”

Lingfield Point is owned by real estate fund manager Frogmore and offers nearly 1,330,000 sq ft of office and warehouse accommodation across 85 acres.

As well as Capita, it lists organisations such as the DWP, NHS and the Student Loans Company as tenants.

Tim Allibone, director of asset management for Frogmore, said: “Capita’s renewed commitment is testament to Lingfield Point’s great location, onsite facilities and cost‐effective accommodation.”

Capita also occupies 42,000 sq ft of office space at the business park, where it has provided pensions administration services for several years.
