Client: London & Scottish Property Asset Management
Gent Visick have advised London & Scottish Property Asset Management on the sale of a substantial manufacturing facility on Bradford Road in Batley, West Yorkshire comprising of 116,000 sq. ft to bed manufacturer Apollo Beds for an undisclosed sum.
The building which in part is over 100 years old was formerly occupied by Case Tractors who manufactured tractor parts from the property for over 70 years.
More recently the property was occupied by Next plc and over the past 18 years the property was leased to XL Joinery, who are one of the UK’s largest supplier of wooden doors.
Paul Mack, Director at Gent Visick who negotiated the sale on behalf of London & Scottish Property Asset Management comments “We knew there would be strong demand for such a rare freehold opportunity in such an established manufacturing location. Although the building in part dates back over 100 years the property provided a truly traditional manufacturing / industrial facility, which are becoming harder and harder to find. The building benefits for example from a large power and gas supply, craneage and a fully integrated sprinkler system. We are delighted the building will be occupied by another local manufacturing business for many years to come.”
