HARRIS LAMB LETS FENTON INDUSTRIAL UNIT TO EMMA BRIDGEWATER
Harris Lamb has let a Fenton warehouse to high profile pottery brand Emma Bridgewater on a ten-year lease.
The 38,000sq ft unit on the Berry Hill Trading Estate is now being used as a national distribution hub.
Andrew Groves, who heads up Harris Lamb’s Stoke office, said: “We were acting on behalf of a private landlord to market the unit, which comprises a substantial warehouse, two-storey office accommodation and a large yard area, making it an ideal storage and distribution centre.
“Thanks to its size and its good location, we had several interested parties, and the property was on the market for a very short time before Emma Bridgwater signed a ten-year lease. The business has grown significantly and as its current warehouse on Lichfield Street is undergoing a conversion to turn it into additional manufacturing space, this was the perfect solution for its needs.
“We are delighted with the speed of this letting, which is yet another illustration of a strong Stoke-based manufacturer committing to a significant investment in the city. Emma Bridgewater was established in 1985 and quickly established itself as an iconic brand which can now be purchased in a wide range of retail outlets to include John Lewis, M&S and House of Fraser.”
The unit was marketed with a rental price of £132,500 per annum.
Emma Bridgewater was represented by Stafford-based Shearwater Rock Consultants.
