Successful firms seek neighbours; COMMERCIAL PROPERTY.
A BUSINESS park is aiming to attract a capacity crowd after signing up a company which helped to furnish Wembley Stadium.
Commercial property advisors Bromwich Hardy have attracted ceramic tiling specialists WB Simpson and Sons to Plot 4020 at Rotherhill Development's Middlemarch Business Park, in Baginton, which was funded by Davidsons.
The Midlands branch of WB Simpson, which employs nine office staff and 35 professional tile fixers, joined up with other branches of the company to form the team which undertook all of the pounds 6.5 million ceramic floor tiling of the new Wembley Stadium.
Richard Friebe, director of WB Simpson and Sons (Midlands), said the company decided to relocate from its Foleshill base due to the expanding needs of the business and he was delighted they were able to remain in Coventry.
"We are proud of our local connections and pleased that Plot 4020 provided us with the ideal location to suit our business needs while allowing us to remain in the city.
"One of the main factors that attracted us to the site was the option to buy rather than rent, and this building gives us a modern building which is more suitable to our needs.
"The site is in a good area of the city and has fantastic access to the road and motorway networks as well as the airport, and we hope that this will allow us to establish ourselves as the leading tiling contractor in the Midlands area."
Another company attracted to the Siskin Drive site was Ironmongery Hardware specialists MI Products.
The company, which designs bespoke hardware, has increased in size after securing several large orders, and Plot 4020 provided them with the extra space they needed to develop.
MI Products, which formed in 1997, has moved from its home of nine years, in Binley, to a bigger 2,500sq ft unit at Middlemarch.
Ian Searle, from MI Products, said the company was looking forward to settling in at the site.
"We are absolutely delighted with our new home. It's local for the people that work here and it offers the extra storage space we were desperate for."
Tom Bromwich, director of Bromwich Hardy, said the organisation was looking forward to attracting more businesses to Plot 4020.
"We are thrilled that WB Simpson and Sons and MI Products have chosen to base themselves here as they aim to develop and expand their businesses.
"I think that's a glowing endorsement of what this site can offer businesses and I have no doubt that the other units available at this premier business park will be quickly filled.
"These are both successful Coventry companies and it is good that they have found new bases while remaining in the city."
Since beginning trading at the start of 2006 from their rural office base in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire, Rotherhill Developments have developed an impressive portfolio including at least nine land acquisitions and more than 70 units.
Their development pipeline now has a completed value of more than pounds 60 million.
Several units at Plot 4020 between 9,000sq ft and 2,000sq ft are still available for sale or to let. For more information or site details call Bromwich Hardy on 02476 308900.
We are proud of our local connections
