Man­u­fac­tur­ers move to new of­fices at ru­ral busi­ness park

Yorkshire Post - Business - - COMMERCIAL PROPERTY -

A FOOD pro­ducer and camp­ing equip­ment man­u­fac­turer are the lat­est firms to move into a North York­shire busi­ness park.

The Brecks Com­pany, which makes break­fast ce­real in­clu­sions, and Hy­drotherm, which makes por­ta­ble wa­ter heaters, have moved into of­fices at Escrick Busi­ness Park in York.

Brecks has taken a one-year lease on a 1,660 sq ft two-storey of­fice. The food man­u­fac­turer, which em­ploys 100 peo­ple at a fac­tory on Breighton Air­field in Selby, pro­duces bar and break­fast ce­real in­clu­sions and sup­plies its prod­ucts to large global busi­nesses. It also pro­duces meat-free so­lu­tions for house­hold name re­tail­ers. Kirsty Cor­co­ran, from The Brecks Com­pany, said: “Our busi­ness started 25 years ago with just 12 peo­ple sup­ply­ing ex­truded ce­re­als and tex­tured pro­teins to man­u­fac­tur­ers.” She added: “Our busi­ness is rapidly ex­pand­ing, and we were keen to find new of­fice space to house our branded team.”

Mean­while, Hy­drotherm has taken an ini­tial six-month lease on a 1,360 sq ft two-storey of­fice to house its sales and re­search and de­vel­op­ment teams. The com­pa­nies join 20 other busi­nesses which are al­ready lo­cated there em­ploy­ing over 160 peo­ple.

Phil Hill, pic­tured, of de­vel­oper S Har­ri­son, said: “The busi­ness park’s ru­ral set­ting has re­ally ap­pealed to firms look­ing for easy ac­cess to the na­tional motorway net­work.

“The ul­tra­fast fi­bre broad­band is ob­vi­ously an­other big plus point as we of­fer some of the fastest down­load speeds any­where in York, which is a ma­jor sell­ing point for the busi­ness park.”
