ANOTHER LIFT FOR CORBY
Acting on behalf of Impact Handling, who are the UK’s largest independent materials handling group providing sales and service for the world’s best known forklift trucks, Barnes Noble Edwards have secured a new long lease of a 23,200ft² unit on Earlstrees Road, Corby.
The property, has been be comprehensively refurbished will be used for storage and service of forklift trucks and spares, and will compliment Impact’s existing unit at Brunel Road. BNE’s appointment to act on behalf of Impact Handling involved Andy Griffiths in the Agency Department. Trevor Goodman from the company’s Building Surveying Department also undertook a comprehensive Schedule of Condition.
The transaction brings BNE’s total industrial and manufacturing property acquisition for clients in 2011 to 200,000ft². The letting provides further evidence of the improvement in the industrial market generally and in Corby, in particular. The steady take up, particularly of industrial properties and the fact that few second hand buildings are coming to market has resulted in a chronic shortage of properties throughout Corby and Kettering. If this continues, companies looking for space in these towns may find that the size of building that they require is not available. This is expected to lead to an increase in development activity and an increase in rental values.
Andy Griffiths of Barnes Noble Edwards said “There are a limited number of opportunities for occupiers of manufacturing and distribution buildings in Corby. With no new development taking place, the shortage of space will become more acute over the coming months. The opportunity to secure a good quality building in Corby for Impact Handling on very competitive terms and close to their existing facility in Brunel Road secures the company’s immediate and longer term future”.
BNE provide a very cost effective property service for occupiers and property owners alike. For further details contact Andy Griffiths on 01536 517777 or email email@example.com
