Bentley Bridge business park attracts new firms
The latest phase of the development of a business park in the Black Country has been completed, with two firms already bidding on units.
Work on the second stage of the hugely successful Bentley Bridge Business Park in Wednesfield has now finished.
Bosses say the new units will appeal to smaller warehouse and manufacturing companies, as well as the retail trade counter sector and smaller online retail businesses.
Phase one of the park was hailed as a huge success by developers Clowes Developments UK, with all the units occupied.
Companies on the park already include those such as Euro Car Parts, Principal Hygiene, Toolstation and Wolverhampton City Primary Care Trust.
Clowes Developments spokesman James Richards said a number of businesses are in talks to set up in the new units.
He said: "For some time we have seen the property market strengthening.
"We are happy to have now completed the speculative development of phase two Bentley Bridge Business Park.
"To date we are very pleased with the interest we have received in the scheme and are confident that we can now offer a product that will be well received by the market."
The new units to have been completed on the business park, which are located off Wednesfield Road in Wolverhampton, range from 5,000 to 33,000sq ft in size.
DTZ and JLL are the joint marketing agents on the business park and have no doubt they will attract interest in them.
Jonathan Robinson, from DTZ's industrial agency team, said: "We are delighted to be able to launch the eagerly anticipated phase two of Bentley Bridge Business Park.
"The high quality units offer occupiers flexibility to either own or rent brand new premises in a sought after prominent roadside location in Wolverhampton.
"We've received strong interest since construction began and are currently in advanced talks with a number of occupiers who are looking to expand in the city.
"Two units are already under offer and we expect our first sale to be concluded by the end of this month."
Steven Jaggers, spokesman from JLL, added: "Having received strong interest from the outset and with two buildings currently under offer, it demonstrates that construction of phase two of Bentley Bridge was the right decision for Clowes."
Car parts company Euro Car Parts opened at the site in 2010, bringing with it a total of 18 jobs. The park is less than a mile from Wolverhampton City Centre.
