Manufacturer expands at industrial estate

A biogas technology company has continued its expansion at a refurbished industrial estate.

Biogas Products has signed a deal on Unit 7 at Cookley Wharf Industrial Estate, Brierley Hill and completed lease extensions on two additional industrial/warehouse units on the same estate.

The company, which designs, manufactures and instals biogas equipment in the UK and overseas, now occupies more than 14,400 sq ft at Cookley Wharf where it has been based since 2011.

It says it will use the additional space to accommodate business expansion and new equipment, including a state-of-the-art laser cutting machine.

As part of the agreement, Goold Estates has refurbished all three units, including new insulated roller shutters and new pedestrian doors, with new LED warehouse lights in Unit 7 and new translucent roof panels in the other two units.

The project was managed by Steve Mewis, construction manager at Goold Estates.

Tony Smith and Martin Newey, directors of Biogas Products, said: “We decided to renew our lease on Units 9 and 10 at Cookley Wharf and take a new lease on Unit 7 as a direct result of the site redevelopment by Goold Estates.”

Goold Estates has recently completed two other lease renewals at Cookley Wharf, where Mr T Mendel t/a Maro BMW Spares and PC Upholstery have extended their existing agreements.

Anthony Williams, property director at Goold Estates, said: “We are delighted that long- term tenants PC Upholstery, Maro BMW and Biogas Products have renewed and extended their leases. All three businesses have been tenants at Cookley Wharf for at least 12 years and we look forward to many more years working together.

“The deals follow a significant investment in the estate in recent years, including a new access road, CCTV and sliding security gate.”
