Pet supplies firm expands with major property acquisition

A fast-growing pet food and accessories firm is expanding after buying a 15,500 sq ft premises in Derby.

Trusty Pet Supplies, which has its retail outlet in Mickleover, has snapped up Units D and E on Kingsway Industrial Park in the city.

The deal was brokered by Darran Severn of FHP Property Consultants on behalf of David Hardaker of H22.

According to Severn, Trusty Pet Supplies had been searching for additional space “for some time.”

He added: “Demand has undoubtedly reduced slightly over the last few months, but it feels very much that any parties who are in the market now are seriously determined to acquire space. There is still a limited supply of good quality freehold opportunities across the region and, as a result, we were able to put this property under offer within a couple of weeks of initial marketing.”
