Amazon To Fight To Keep Its Gourock Base

Amazon Gourock

Global internet giant Amazon says it will fight a court order requiring it to vacate the premises it operates from in Gourock.

Amazon currently employs hundreds of people at the fulfilment centre at Faulds Park.

The 300,000 sq ft building was leased for 15 years in 2004 from M7 Real Estate Investments Partners Ltd.

The landlord gave Amazon “notice to quit” on 7 February 2019, saying the company would be required to “remove from the premises” on or before 1 August 2019.

Amazon went to court arguing that the period of notice should have been a year and that, because it hadn’t been given 12 months, the company was entitled to another year.

However, the Court of Session has ruled that the length of time was sufficient under common law.

An Amazon spokesperson said: “It’s business as usual for our customers and associates and we will be appealing the court decision.”

No indication has been given regarding M7 Real Estate’s intentions for the site although the property is listed on their website
