Haulage firm Eddie Stobart is to establish a new distribution facility at Eurocentral business park in Lanarkshire.

The firm will move in to the park's 67,689 sq ft Pinnacle building this month to help it meet growing business demand from central Scotland.

Stobart said it expected to create about 40 jobs at the site.

The move is thought to be one of the biggest industrial property deals in Scotland in the past six months.

Eurocentral, which stands next to the M8 motorway between Glasgow and Edinburgh, includes several speculative builds by Muse Developments which are worth more than £50m.

More than 3,000 people are currently employed at Eurocentral, which has more than 3.5 million sq ft of developed space.

It hosts operations for businesses including Morrison, Hovis, Argos and Warburtons.
