Acting on behalf of JPB Holdings, the Industrial Agency Team at CBRE’s Sheffield office has completed the sale of Unit 3A Wentworth Industrial Estate in Tankersley, South Yorkshire.
The 21,931 sq ft unit, which benefits from a high profile position on the well occupied Wentworth Industrial Estate equidistant between Sheffield and Barnsley centre’s, was sold for £650,000 to print finishing equipment specialists Rollem.
Roger Haworth, Senior Director of Industrial Agency at CBRE Sheffield, said; “This established industrial location has proven popular with occupiers due to the ease of access to the M1 via Junction 36 and its access to the major conurbations of South Yorkshire. The accommodation was a perfect solution for Rollem as it also offers a high specification warehouse including fully fitted office accommodation. Once again, South Yorkshire demonstrates its attractiveness as an industrial base.”
Stuart Murphy, Managing Director of Rollem said “We have worked with CBRE for a number of years they advised us on the relocation to the new premises and the redevelopment of the premises at Ecclesfield, enabling both to run smoothly and getting the best possible outcome for the future of the business. The new premises at Tankersley have doubled the floor area allowing the company to look to future growth and expansion and have already taken on two apprentices. Having the additional facility of the fibre optic digital region throughout the premises has enabled us, as we export over 85% of our business, to now host international video conferences with customers and potential customers and we have set up a demonstration area in the factory so using webcam technology we can show customers the full capability of our machines without having to travel around the world.”
