FISHING OUT A NEW HOME FOR SEA PRODUCTS INTERNATIONAL
Following the impending closure of its current home at Birmingham’s Wholesale Market, high quality seafood supplier Sea Products International Limited has purchased a new office with the help of Harris Lamb.
Located only one mile south east of Birmingham City Centre, 62 Ravenhurst Street, offered for sale by SDL Bigwood, is a modern self-contained office building. Harris Lamb negotiated the sale on behalf of Sea Products International Limited and is now overseeing a refit of the premises.
Sea Products International Limited distribute an extensive range of high quality frozen seafood such as king prawns and exotic and locally sourced shellfish and fish fillets to the wholesale, hotel, restaurant and manufacturing sectors across the UK and Ireland, and currently employ 23 staff.
Neil Slade, of Harris Lamb’s Agency team, oversaw the sale and said: “The move came into place after planning permission for the £500 million Smithfield Scheme was granted by Birmingham City Council. The consent from the council was to clear the 18-acre Wholesale Market area and regenerate that part of the city into a state of the art leisure complex, meaning Sea Products needed a new site.
“We are delighted to have arranged the purchase, and we’re continuing to work closely with the business as we oversee an extensive refit of the building to ensure it meets its needs. We wish Paul and his team every success at their new premises.”
Paul Pearce, Director of Sea Products International Limited said; “Following the approval of the Smithfield Scheme we began looking at new areas for relocation and fortunately found this building close to our current operation in a convenient location on the main approach to the city.
“We are extremely pleased to be moving in to this two-storey building, with the excellent help from SDL Bigwood, and the team at Harris Lamb, we know we have found the ideal property for us.”
