“We were aware that AW Repair Group were looking for a repair centre in Derby and we thought this property might be suitable. With a proactive hands-on approach by our clients, Derbyshire Investments, a deal was struck for them to take all 3 units, planning permission obtained, and works undertaken to enable them to start their extensive fit-out.”

AW Group was founded in 1998 and repairs more than 12,000 vehicles a year.

Scott Bailey from the landlord Derbyshire Investments said: “Derbyshire Investments welcome a fantastic tenant into the unit and wish them great success for the future. We were extremely happy with the speed of the letting and the professionalism shown.”
