£2.2m warehouse deal creates new jobs

Five jobs are set to be created after a warehouse purchase by a West Midlands trade counter.

Brickability has acquired Unit 10, a new-build 12,400 sq ft warehouse on the Forge Lane Industrial Estate in Minworth, Sutton Coldfield in a £2.2m deal arranged by Siddall Jones.

This is now being fitted out as a trade counter for Brickability’s company, UP Building Products.
Brickability is one of the leading suppliers of bricks, cladding, tiles, radiators and doors to the UK construction sector.
Ed Siddall-Jones said: “We were delighted to have secured this sale at a price that reflects a market that is hungry for spaces of this size and quality.
“We’re pleased to be helping the expansion of Up Building Products’ trade counter business and look forward to watching the success in an area where a high of level of residential construction is taking place.”
Andrew Staff, managing director of UP Building Products said: “We see lots of promise in the area, with multiple housebuilding projects at various stages of planning in and around the Sutton Coldfield area, so this will be the ideal location for builders to get their materials”.
The property was sold to Brickability Plc from Rubbernek Fittings, an engineering company based in the West Midlands.
Emma Hutchings of Acuity Law in Cardiff advised Brickability in the purchase, with Nathan Guest of Harrison Clark Rickerbys in Worcester acting on behalf of Rubbernek.
