SEGREO CEO comments on Heathrow expansion

David Sleath, Chief Executive Officer of SEGRO, the FTSE 100 company which owns over 5 million sq ft of industrial property at London’s airports, primarily at Heathrow, provides the following comment on the announcement regarding the expansion at Heathrow: “We are delighted that the plans for expansion at Heathrow have been approved by Cabinet.

We have long argued that for Britain to succeed in the global economy, we need new hub capacity and that means expanding Heathrow. We now urge Parliament to continue this positive momentum and bring an end to indecision.

Access to new and emerging markets is fundamental to ensuring the UK’s place on the world stage and failure to expand Heathrow will leave the UK behind its international and European competitors.”
