New life for boat fac­tory

Birmingham Post - - COMMERCIAL PROPERTY -

NEW let­tings have been signed at a for­mer boat fac­tory in Worces­ter­shire.

Two units have been taken by Bath & Homes to aid ex­pan­sion plans at the firm which im­ports and dis­trib­utes bath­room fix­tures and fit­tings. The com­pany has signed up for 18,000 sq ft on a new ten-year lease at the old Sealine plant in Kid­der­min­ster.

A 8,500 sq ft unit has also been let to in­de­pen­dent tyre re­tailer AA Slick Tyres, again on a ten-year lease. The let­tings fol­low a ten-year deal at the start of the year for a 60,000 sq ft ware­house to man­u­fac­turer Luxfer Gas Cylin­ders.

White Rose Char­tered Sur­vey­ors, which se­cured the deals on be­half of the land­lord, said they demon­strated there was great con­fi­dence in Kid­der­min­ster.

“The Govern­ment’s Mid­lands En­gine Strat­egy is giv­ing busi­ness the con­fi­dence to in­crease in­vest­ment, cre­at­ing more high-skilled, long-term jobs in the UK,” said a spokesman.
