Five tenant deals done for Rochdale trading estate

Stakehill Industrial Estate

Stakehill Industrial Estate has seen five Manchester-based businesses commit their future to the estate.

UBS and Asset Managers Canmoor have agreed lettings with Sitraben Contract Furniture, Elite Signs, Falch, Workplace North and D Turner and Sons during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Sitraben Contract Furniture, a local furniture manufacturer and a long-standing occupier on the estate, has extended its lease at Stakehill.

Elite Signs moved into a new unit after completing a new 10-year lease to expand its growing operation. The company, which specialises in health and safety signage, has bases across the region and is aiming to be operational at Stakehill as soon as possible.

D Turner & Sons has taken a new lease for a 36,000 sq ft unit to help service a strong existing client base.

This unit will allow its continued expansion of its nationwide operation, helping to assist thousands of private and public sector organisations in successfully and safely moving a diverse range of heavy machinery, plant and equipment throughout the UK and Europe.

Falch and Workplace North have both renewed their respective leases showing their commitment to the estate.

Brands including UK Mail, Boots, DHL and Tesco are also based on the site, and the estate has supported all operators and tenants at Stakehill during the current pandemic.

UBS is the majority owner of Stakehill Industrial Estate.

Since its purchase, UBS and Canmoor have undertaken a series of initiatives to improve the site.

These include full refurbishments, landscaping works and additional signage and CCTV. These positive initiatives have helped secure new occupiers as well as retaining existing tenants.

Tom Park, of Canmoor, said: “We are delighted that these well-known businesses have sought to expand or continue their operations at Stakehill, especially given the current circumstances.

“Supporting the growth of existing and new occupiers is a key principle in our strategy.

“Whilst it’s a difficult time for many businesses, we have been working closely with occupiers to understand where we can assist.

“We will continue to monitor government guidance, and we will support our tenants by keeping the estate open and our team remains on hand to provide any support and help when required.”
