Prime lets reflect growing demand for office space

15 October 2015

Growing demand for office space has led to the lease of prime premises at Meridian Park, with the prospect of new employment opportunities.

Leading East Midlands commercial property specialist Andrew and Ashwell has recently completed deals on two sets of modern office units on Harcourt Way, for Samworth Brothers and The Greenray Group.

Meridian Business Park is a premier commercial location, close to the M1 and M69 motorway junctions, with Harcourt Way a designated office zone near the main Meridian Park entrance. 

Leasing two large, open plan office units here, totaling over 3,250 sq ft, marks continued IT expansion for Melton-based specialist food producer Samworth Brothers, whose leading brands include Walkers and Dickinson and Morris pork pies. Gary Smith, Project Manager for Samworth Brothers’ IT Transformation Team, explained that the increased office space will allow the centralisation and growth of the company’s IT facility, with the projected recruitment of up to 15 further staff in the coming year. 

“We had outgrown our previous offices and the new buildings will provide all the space we need for ongoing development. This move will help us grow our business, as well as providing enhanced space to extend our IT team.”

Lincoln-based The Greenray Group provides servicing solutions to the industrial gas turbine and steam turbine markets worldwide and has taken over 2,500 sq ft of open plan office space over two floors. 
In recent months the firm has launched Greenray Control Solutions Ltd; a new arm of the business, providing control system upgrades, retrofits and technical support.

Clare Edwards, Strategic Marketing and Communications Executive for Greenray said:

“To assist in the expansion of the business, we acquired the large office at Meridian Park, since the central location will give us the scope to strengthen our existing capabilities whilst continuing to evolve our business.”

Kelvin Wilson for Andrew and Ashwell said dwindling stock levels reflect continued improvement in letting prime office accommodation.  

 “There is increasing demand for good quality office space and one of the main reasons for the popularity of units on Harcourt Way is the close proximity to the M1, proving an excellent location for staff and clients to conduct business. Our current stock levels would certainly suggest the market is improving.”
