Award winning commercial property agents Rushton Hickman Ltd are thrilled to announce that we have let Unit 11 Granary Wharf to Marine and Power Engineering Ltd, a well-established business operating in Burton upon Trent for over 8 years.

Granary Wharf is a prestigious development of modern offices buildings, boasting superb transport links, located on the edge of Burton Upon Trent town centre.

Unit 11 Granary Wharf is a 2,000sq ft semi-detached modern hybrid office/warehouse unit features a 75/25 split.  The high-quality office space spans both floors and the warehouse/workshop element comprises part of the ground floor, complete with its own dedicated roller shutter access door and allocated car parking spaces externally.

Marine and Power Engineering Ltd have experienced significant growth over the last couple of years and decided to divide their business operations between two locations. They have opted to keep the manufacturing aspect of their business at Steel Fabs Industrial Estate in Burton, whilst relocating their office operations to a separate location, which initiated the expansion to Granary Wharf.

Taylor Millington, Agency Surveyor commented, “It is excellent news to see a local business expanding, particularly since we previously let MPE their unit at Steel Fabs Industrial Estate. This prior relationship has helped facilitate a quicker process and upon revisiting their new location, we were impressed by the fantastic fit-out they have completed!”

Natalie, Operations Director at MPE added, “After growing out of our office space at Steel Fabs Industrial Estate, we knew we needed separate premises for projects and equipment sales.  After many viewings, we couldn’t believe how perfect Unit 11 Granary Wharf was and we jumped at the chance to take on the lease.”

“From saying ‘yes’ at our first viewing we completed in a month, all thanks to Rushton Hickman making the whole process smooth and trouble free.”

Our client, TUS Holdings Ltd concluded, “Having dealt with the team at Rushton Hickman to acquire another office unit on Granary Wharf recently, I had no hesitation in appointing them to help us find a new tenant for Unit 11.”

“Taylor, who handled the process for us from start to finish, was always honest and realistic in his appraisal of what kind of deal we could expect to achieve given the market conditions and competition from other properties available nearby.”

“I’m delighted that we secured a deal with a fantastic tenant who was very keen to move forward quickly and both Taylor and Steph at Rushton Hickman were extremely efficient in pushing things through as quickly as possible. It was less than a month between agreeing heads of terms and the client moving in!”

Taylor Millington added, “Having assisted TUS Holdings Ltd on various property transactions, we are proud and grateful that they continue to put their trust and confidence in us.”
