New appointment on industrial park and more agency news

BROMSGROVE-based JP Dillon Commercial Property Consultants has been appointed to market the 2.6-acre Troy Industrial Estate in Redditch.

Originally developed in the 1940s by Quinney Diaries, the site was taken over by the Milk Marketing Board in the 1970s and sold in 1978 to an investor for development.

It was used as a manufacturing centre for a number of companies making automotive components but all of these have now vacated the site.

The company will be housed in Blucher Street, opposite The Mailbox, in an office owned by Shrewsbury-based Morris Property.

The Shropshire firm was advised by the Birmingham office of Drivers Jonas Deloitte.

Finally, Lake Chemicals and Minerals has taken 4,000 sq ft at the Paper Mill Drive office complex in Redditch.

The company, which employs 15 staff, acts as a sales and distribution arm for overseas firms wanting to sell to manufacturing companies in the UK and Ireland.
