Frontier Park’s first industrial deal sealed

Machinery supplier Tek-Dry Systems has agreed to a 61,000 sq ft pre-let at the Frontier Park Development at junction 6 of the M65.

Frontier Park is one of the largest speculative industrial developments in the North West and Tek-Dry, a specialist global supplier of high-quality thermal process machinery, is the first commercial tenant to sign up for the scheme.

The business has leased 61,000 sq ft at Pioneer Court, part of the 400,000 sq. ft. of accommodation currently under construction at the development.

Frontier Park is already a hive of activity with a services hub to the frontage of the Park incorporating petrol filling station, Spar and Subway shops, Drive-thru Greggs, Starbucks and KFC.

A 150 bed Hampton by Hilton Hotel and a 1,400 delegate capacity conference and events centre is also under construction.

Alex Kenwright, Frontier Park development manager, said: “Since the turn of the year we have seen the level of occupier enquires rise dramatically and we look forward to announcing more deals over the coming months, as the first phases of the development reach completion.”

Scott Thompson, sales director at Tek-Dry, said: “This move marks a significant milestone in the progression of Tek-Dry Systems Limited.

“It provides us with the means to service and support our growing customer base and to expand our reach.”

Frontier Park’s developer is Monte (Blackburn). Letting agents are Trevor Dawson, Avison Young and B8 Real Estate.
