HARRIS LAMB SECURES MANUFACTURING TENANT AT HOLLYMOOR POINT
Harris Lamb has overseen a deal that will see Aquapak Polymers Ltd move to a Rubery site after agreeing a pre-let on a 15-year lease as part of its manufacturing expansion plans.
Acting on behalf of Hortons’ Estates and Trebor Developments, Harris Lamb has secured the Kings Norton-based manufacturing firm as a tenant at Hollymoor Point in a deal which is expected to create 70 new jobs within two years.
Plans have now been submitted to develop a 50,000 sq ft manufacturing facility at the site.
Neil Slade, of Harris Lamb’s Agency team, said: “The deal enabled us to work on behalf of clients to secure a new tenant with major growth plans. Currently based in Kings Norton, Aquapak Polymers is investing heavily in its expansion and agreed a pre-let on the site. It predicts that once the new manufacturing hub is operational, it will create 70 jobs within the first two years on site.
“We’re delighted to have been able to bring further manufacturing investment into the region,” he added.
Bob Tattrie, managing partner for Trebor Developments LLP, said: “The development will meet the requirements for this process driven manufacturing facility and we look forward to working with all parties to deliver this exciting scheme.”
Mike Everard, managing director of Aquapak Polymers, commented: “We’re excited to be working with Hortons’ and Trebor to further our plans to establish a clean manufacturing facility in Birmingham.
“Submitting planning for the development takes us one step closer to production and the creation of new jobs for the city, supporting the regeneration of the area and the wider goals of the Midlands Engine.”
There is now just over one acre remaining available for development at Hollymoor Point, which can accommodate up to 15,000 sqft of industrial warehousing/manufacturing space.
