Dudley a3racts steel specialist to set up shop; PROPERTY.

A leading European steel specialist has chosen Muck low's flagship York's Park development in Dudley as home for one of its UK warehouse facilities.

Ovako has taken a high specification 18,171 sq ft industrial unit on the 12-acre Blowers Green Road site, which Muck low has transformed into one of the area's most prominent commercial parks for light manufacturing, storage and distribution companies.

This new facility is the latest for Ovako, which has its group head office in Sweden and employs 4,300 people across 16 production sites and sales companies worldwide.

Ovako sales manager Mike Terrington said that Ovako's relocation from Wednesbury to Yorks Park will situate the company at the heart of Midlands transport links.

"Although we looked at several sites, Yorks Park was the obvious choice for us.

"Being at the heart of the West Midlands, the Park is in an absolutely prime location with easy transport links both regionally and nationwide."

This letting marks just the latest coup for Muck low's Yorks Park - in recent months the company has attracted other industry leaders to the high quality park which comprises 157,473 sq ft of commercial space.

Most recently, Muck low announced the first of its second phase pre-lets to leading UK timber specialists Lathams Ltd, which has taken a 35,194 sq ft unit currently under construction.

One unit of 23,000 sq ft remains available on the first phase with rentals being quoted of pounds 5.00 per sq ft.

Muck low's development director Jesse Stokes said: "It is testament to the quality of the business space at York's Park that so many international companies have registered their interest in the site.

"As a major regeneration project for Dudley, these lettings are great news for the area both in terms of jobs and economic prosperity."

Yorks Park is being marketed by joint agents Bulleys and Atisreal.
