Rushton Hickman Ltd has achieved a fully let site of industrial units, at Steel Fabs Industrial Estate in Burton upon Trent.

The last remaining unit of 8,760 sq. ft has been let to Marine and Power Engineering Ltd as part of their natural growth, due to the continuing success of the business.

Marine and Power Engineering have been trading since 2015 and are specialists in providing all aspects of marine propulsion and power generation. This includes installation, fabrication and servicing for both land based and marine generators from 5KW to 11MW.

MPE also provide marine fabrication and welding services, emergency power solutions and can provide parts worldwide from stock. They are authorised dealers of SDMO KOHLER and Himoinsa products and can provide breakdown cover with a 24/7 service promise.

The business is owned and operated `hands on’ by Alex Vanstone, Natalie Humphries and their team who commented “when we saw the location of the unit, it was just perfect for us. Being so close to a major road network is great for any business that operates UK wide.”

“We found Rushton Hickman to be really helpful through the whole process and were really impressed on the turnaround time. Their Agent – Simon, was particularly helpful and worked fast to ensure we closed the deal quickly.”

Rushton Hickman Commercial Agent – Simon Walker negotiated the deal and added “The unit is a great fit for Alex and Natalie and is ideal with plenty of space, having had 90 ft canal narrow boats in situ for refurbishment works in the past.”

“My client is very happy that we have agreed lease terms on the last remaining unit on the site with a well-established business. Rushton Hickman are pro-active in meeting our clients’ needs and despite the pandemic, we have found the demand for industrial units to be particularly strong in the Burton and surrounding areas.”
