A Prominent warehouse/industrial premises located at Wednesbury One in Wednesbury has been let by Bulleys Chartered Surveyors on behalf of their client Mucklow.
Wednesbury One occupies an excellent location with direct access from the A41 Black Country New Road, approximately 1½ miles from Junction 9 of the M6, 3 miles from Junction 10 of the M6 and 4 miles from Junction 1 of the M5. The 21,611 sq ft property comprises a modern warehouse/production unit with a self-contained concrete loading yard to the side and two storey offices and parking to the front.
The unit has been taken by Bevan Motor Bodies Limited who will crown their 40th anniversary year by moving to a smart and spacious new headquarters. Underlining the strength of the business, Bevan will retain the production facility in Amber Way, Halesowen, which has also served as its head office since 2006, as well as a second base in Blakeley Hall Road, Oldbury. Crucially, the new headquarters at Wednesbury One will allow the company to press ahead with an ambitious programme of investment in its highly successful Aftercare Response. The Aftercare Response operation is managed by a centrally-based team of 24 operations controllers but, says Anthony Bevan: “Our growth strategy envisages that we’ll double that number within the next five years.” He continues: “To a great extent we’ve been victims of our own success, as rapid expansion of the business has meant that we’ve employed more and more colleagues with the result that we’ve now outgrown our current head office. The new base in Wednesbury will give us the extra office accommodation and car parking space we desperately need, as well as valuable additional production capacity.”
Max Shelley of Bulleys commented “This is a very well presented property with an excellent location and we are delighted that we have been able to assist with the expansion of a growing local business”.
Stuart Haydon of Mucklow commented “We are very pleased that Bevan Motor Bodies Limited have chosen Unit 2 Wednesbury One for the expansion of their business. The letting, following high levels of interest in the building, further proves the strength of the market for good quality, well located units in the West Midlands”.
One last unit remains at Wednesbury One. The comprehensively refurbished Unit 3 Wednesbury One extends to 50,359 sq ft and comprises a modern/industrial warehouse arranged in two bays with two storey internal offices, a secure concrete loading yard with a depth of 45m plus visitor/staff car parking.
