Howdens Joinery moves to City Park in Stoke-on-Trent
One of the UK's leading suppliers of kitchens and joinery products has taken space at Langtrees City Park Trading Estate in Stoke-on-Trent.
Howdens Joinery, which supplies kitchen units and products to builders, has taken a 16,357 sq ft industrial unit, the largest at the site, on a 15-year lease. The letting takes the estate to 85 per cent occupancy.
The company acquired the unit as a new depot to complement its existing depot in Cobridge, to the north side of the city.
Mark Churchill, head of property at Howdens Joinery, said: “We had been looking for the right premises in this part of Stoke and this new depot will enable us to grow our business in Stoke by serving existing clients and welcoming new customers. We are very pleased to have opened at City Park as part of our on-going expansion programme.”
Kathryn Smart, property manager at Langtree, said: “Langtree is pleased to welcome such a leading company in the kitchen industry to City Park. It is clear Howdens Joinery is going from strength to strength we hope their new space at the park will help them continue with its success.”
City Park Trading Estate provides over 90,000 sq ft of industrial and trade space units ranging in size from 1,300 to 16,350 sq ft in an established trading location in Stoke-on-Trent.
Langtree operates a diverse portfolio of directly owned and joint venture property totaling more than 4 million sq ft comprising office parks, industrial estates and trade parks across the north and midlands of England.
