The industrial sector has seen a great rise in demand in the last 18 months, when Unit 21 Torbay Business Park was put to the market there was a rush of enquiries and eligible applicants. The successful party were Wright Brothers, fish merchants who source and supply the finest fish to London restaurants

The transaction progressed efficiently with both sides working hard to ensure the new tenants could occupy the property as soon as possible, the result of this was that the tenant could meet their deadlines and the landlord had no break in their rental income caused by a void period.

The acquisition of Unit 21 marks a new era for this part of the company. In addition to supplying celebrity and Michelin star chefs, Wright Brothers will now serve general public. The property will be used for dispatching goods and recipe research and development. This exemplifies the diversification and innovation that businesses need in the current market to thrive.

CEO of Wright Brothers at Home Robin Hancock adds ‘We were delighted to work with Tom Churchward at Stratton Creber Commercial who, in a very competitive market for commercial warehouse space, found a site ideally fitting our requirement and expedited the transaction to meet our deadline for our rapidly expanding business in the South West. We continue to work with SCC as we forge ahead with our seafood business and our requirement for further commercial space.’

There are a large number of companies looking for premises in the area but there is a severe shortage of suitable property. If you are considering either selling or letting your premises contact Andrew Hosking or Tom Churchward of Stratton Creber Commercial 01392 202 203.
