Growing factory automation firm secures larger premises

LED Controls

A factory automation specialist which has doubled in size since 2019 has moved into larger premises in Burnley.

LED Controls – which supplies electric motor controls, building automation and safety products – has secured a five-year lease on a 11,680 sq ft premises at Network 65 Business Park.

The company, established in 1997, required larger premises to be able to hold more stock and accommodate its growing team following increased demand from clients.

Richard Allen, managing director of LED Controls, commented: “This move will have a transformational impact on our business because it gives the capacity we need to grow and meet the exacting requirements of our customers.”

“Our manufacturing clients work across a diverse range of sectors, including renewables, food and beverage, and heating and ventilation. They need supply chain certainty and so being able to hold more stock means we can meet their demands quickly.”

LED Controls was advised on the lease by the commercial property team at Preston-based law firm Harrison Drury.

Roberto Bonaminio, who provided a range of commercial property advice to support Richard, said: "LED Controls is a fantastic local business that has seen significant growth over the last few years and has a clear plan for future success.

“We helped Richard and his team overcome a number of complexities in securing the new lease. Our negotiations helped LED Controls enter into a protected tenancy agreement, giving them security of tenure rights, which will enable them to remain in possession of the premises after the term reaches its natural end, with an option to renew the lease.”

Commercial property consultants Trevor Dawson assisted on the deal by drawing up the heads of terms. Michael Cavannagh, director of Trevor Dawson, added: “It’s always great to see a family-owned business, like LED Controls, thrive."

LED Controls currently employs 17 members of staff, both full and part time, with plans to recruit two more in the near future.
