Garden furniture supplier acquires new HQ

A warehouse unit has been acquired by a rapidly-expanding garden furniture supplier in a £2.2m deal.

The 50,000 sq ft unit, in Middlemore Lane West, Aldridge, has been disposed of on behalf of packaging specialist Allgroup, trading as Allpack, forming part of the company’s expansion to a purpose-built headquarters in Cannock.

Autumn Leaves is experiencing a period of rapid growth and required a larger unit than its existing base in Burntwood, Staffordshire.

Trading as Signature Weave, it specialises in rattan-style garden furniture. Sales have approximately doubled year-on-year.

Burley Browne, based in Sutton Coldfield, was instructed by Allpack to market the unit before its move to its new 60,000 sq ft headquarters at Kingswood Lakeside Business Park.

Senior associate director Ben Nicholson said: “It’s great to see Autumn Leaves doing so well and the new headquarters offers the company room to continue the growth it has been enjoying in recent years. We were delighted to conclude the deal on behalf of Allpack and thrilled to have been able to assist with this.”
