Wanis International Foods has acquired a new 100,000 ft2 (9,290 m2) regional distribution centre at Segro Park, Rainham, from the Greater London Authority (GLA) and Segro.
Financial details were not disclosed.
The food and drink importer and distributor will occupy the shed, creating about 30 jobs for the local area.
Akhtar Alibhai from Colliers, which advised Wanis on the deal, said: 'It has been great to be involved in this exciting acquisition on behalf of Wanis and to work so closely with Segro to deliver this new high specification distribution centre on time, following a tight 38 week build programme.
'We have been advising Wanis on their logistics expansion plan, which began in 2017 when we acquired a 6.5 acre (26,300 m2) distribution centre for them in Milton Keynes.
'This state-of-the-art new build facility has just been completed and Wanis has now begun a substantial fit out programme with occupation expected before the end of the year. This latest addition takes their logistics and distribution capacity to over 350,000 ft2 across the Midlands and South East.'
