Malcolm Grayson, Director in Andrew + Ashwell negotiated terms with GEOAmey’s representative, David Nunn of Dunlop Heywood who secured Units 3&4 on a long term lease:


“GEOAmey had searched the wider Leicester area and selected Whittle as the perfect location, while fulfilling their staffing objective for quality premises. The property also provides generous parking and exceptional security”.
Peter Doleman, of joint letting agent Innes England, commented “It must surely be very encouraging for local business to see The Whittle Estate expanding to provided targeted product in a market where new speculative product is in such short supply and remains at historically low levels”.
