Burton, Derby and Nottingham based property consultants, Salloway have announced that expanding local businesses are showing particular interest in the modern offices and warehouse centre at Number 1, Lancaster Business Park, at Needwood.
Offering almost 14,000 sq ft of space, the well-appointed facility will provide the new occupiers with the advantages of growing their operations within the surroundings of an established Business Park.
Conveniently located at the entrance to the flourishing Business Park, and close to the A50, plus the FA Centre at St Georges Park, and with other well-established businesses already successfully operating from this superb rural location, businesses will find this building an attractive proposition.
The prominent position of No.1, currently occupied by Activa Healthcare Limited, offers ease of access to the detached single storey building, with its large service yard and some 40+ parking spaces.
Phil Randle, Partner at Salloway, Burton, who are sole agents for Number 1, Lanwith light industrial use subject to planning permission), or operational businesses looking to expand.
This business park is already an important commercial centre and displays a high-level of achievement and success from the resident businesses, including General Electric, Automated Control Systems, Long Vale, Midland Tree Surgeons, National Products, and Fuelcare Limited".
Activa Healthcare are remaining on the Business Park and relocating within the site to new warehouse facility, now under construction, into which this successful business will move in June this year.
Of particular interest to those considering the property as their Head Quarters building are the partitioned offices and amenity block in Bays One and Two (each offering some 4,000 sq ft of space). These are two storeys high and have their own separate entrance. The self-contained offices comprise a reception area, and general offices on the ground floor; with a Board Room and private offices on the first floor.
"Our letting of distribution centres and offices on integrated business parks provides convincing evidence of the advantages and commercial benefits of working in close proximity to similar medium-sized businesses," continued Phil Randle.
"These offices could serve as a local or branch office for a regional or national organisation that are increasingly being attracted to Burton and East Staffordshire".
The single storey portal framed warehouse, (some 6.3m to the eaves), is internally illuminated with sodium lights and has three separate electrically-operated 5.88m high service doors making it highly suitable, for example, for a logistics centre looking to operate from close to the Heart of the Country.
Human Resources Director at Activa, Rob Morton, added, "The exact nature of the complementary businesses is not critical.
"The fact that they are working close-by has a positive and 'inspirational effect' which can be an all-important factor in creating the optimism and drive needed by smaller businesses. This is exactly what has happened to us at Lancaster Business Park and is a key catalyst for this business remaining here, albeit in a larger facility but just a stones' throw from No.1".
