Expansion for manufacturing company
08 Jun 2015
Leeds-based manufacturing company Union Industries, which makes high speed industrial doors and hazard protection and heat retention systems, has signed a ten-year lease on a newly refurbished industrial space at Spectrum Park.
Spectrum Park incorporates four industrial units and is also home to Land Rover dealership Farnell's sales and service centres. The manufacturing company planning to expand its operations after letting 16,500 sq ft at the site.
Richard Baker from Rushbond, who owns the site, said: "Spectrum Park is just minutes away from both the motorway network and Leeds city centre, which makes it a highly sought after location.
"Union Industries is a very well-respected Leeds business with a strong local heritage and the company is already a major property occupier in this part of Leeds, which makes them a welcome addition to Spectrum Park so we're delighted to be able to facilitate the company's next phase of growth."
Andrew Lane, Managing Director at Union Industries, says: “This latest expansion follows a very exciting few months at Union Industries. In November 2014, we became an Employee Owned company meaning every single employee now owns shares in the business which is great for everyone, especially as the improving economy is helping to drive demand for our products on a global scale, with both new and existing customers.
“Expanding our operations at Spectrum Park gives us an extremely high quality industrial space, conveniently located for Angel’s Wing, and it will enable us to service the increase in business that we are experiencing as we embark on our next phase of growth.”
