Bunzl Distribution Midatlantic LLC has leased 114,009 square feet of space in a new building at Henrico County’s Airport Distribution Center.

Based in St. Louis, Bunzl supplies products to food processors, supermarkets, and convenience stores, including food packaging, disposable supplies and cleaning and safety products.

The company plans to relocate its Richmond-area operation to the new space.

Developed and built by Becknell Industrial, the new building, Building B, offers a total of 153,504 square feet, with 32-foot clear ceilings, LED lighting and an ESFR sprinkler system. The building was completed in the third quarter of this year.

Clifford B. Porter of Porter Realty Co, Inc. represented Becknell in the lease to Bunzl and is the park’s exclusive agent.

Becknell also has started construction on Building D in the same park, which will include 202,560 square feet of distribution space. The park is home to three other existing facilities, including Building C. It was completed in 2008 and purchased by Becknell along with site pads in 2014.

The park’s occupants include WestRock, Batesville Casket, Forward Air Solutions and Graybar among others.
