Eurocell takes 60,000 sq ft distribution unit

Eurocell Profiles has taken a 60,000 sq ft distrinbution unit in Alfreton, in a deal brokered by Commercial Property Partners (CPP) in conjunction with joint agents FHP Property Consultants.

Eurocell Profiles has taken the building, adding to its portfolio of premises and depots across the UK and close to its headquarters, also based in Alfreton. A recent refurbishment of the property included a new roof and cladding, enhanced loading provision and substantially extended surfacing to create large yards to front and rear.

Eurocell operates a nationwide network of more than 210 branches supplying VC-U roofline, conservatory roof, window trim and door products, as well as fixings, sealants and tools required for plastics-based jobs. It manufactures and stocks around 4,000 product lines and employs more than 1,000 staff across its network.

Sean Bremner, director at CPP, said: “The property underwent a substantial refurbishment and attracted a great deal of attention before we agreed terms with Eurocell Profiles. A key USP of the site is its low site density setting, creating a large yard for external storage which formed a key part of Eurocell’s requirements. We were delighted to be able to work with Eurocell to agree a final specification to create a facility to aid their expansion in Alfreton.”

Tim Gilbertson from FHP added: “It’s great that we managed to secure such a strong covenant in Eurocell, our joint marketing created interest from any number of parties and we had to disappoint quite a few, which shows the strength of local demand and the lack of space available. We wish Eurocell well in their new home which we are sure will prove to be absolutely ideal for them.”
