The prestigious deals will increase projected 2015 turnover of £60m to £72m.The first of the four transactions came to fruition after on-going discussions with existing tenant, BCW Engineering, were resolved. Barnfield has agreed a contract with BCW to refurbish an additional 30,000 sq ft of industrial space for them at the former Michelin Tyre factory site.
This will increase BCW’s total premises to 90,000 sq ft at Barnfield’s Innovation Drive development in Burnley, which they moved into at the end of last year.At Barnfield’s latest business park in Salford, Solomon Commercial have committed to the first 20,000 sq ft plot at Agecroft Commerce Park that Barnfield recently purchased for development from the HCA.
The investment will be split into 4 industrial units from 4,000 sq ft and the space will be available to let later this year.Continuing the success on the tendering side of the business, Barnfield were successful in their submission after a thorough tendering process with Trilanco, the UK’s largest animal health and equine products wholesaler.
