Manufacturer expands after buying 60,000 sq ft HQ

A supplier of mobility equipment has expanded in Alfreton after buying a 60,000 sq ft building.

The firm has acquired the premises on Salcombe Road in the town in a deal brokered by FHP Property Consultants.

Autochair was set up by David Walker in 1975.

Phil Young of Autochair said: “It has been a pleasure dealing with the seller and their professional team of advisors, even more so during the challenging year of 2020 when we all had to adapt and make changes. Moving forward into 2021, we look forward to moving into the new facility and continue the growth of Autochair.”

Tim Gilbertson, who acted on behalf of the vendor, said:- “It was a pleasure to act for what has been a long-term client of mine on this sale. Equally, it’s also always a delight to help a local company expand as part of any transaction and with the success that Autochair have had over the last few years which has necessitated their need for more space, it’s great to see a local company expanding and buying good quality space in such testing times as we have all endured over the last year.

“I’m sure the building will serve Autochair Limited well and I wish them terrific success as they continue to march forward and grow their business.”
