Unit E1 has been recently refurbished and is off Gelderd Road, 1.5 miles from Leeds City Centre.

Tom Lamb, property manager at Towngate, said: “I am delighted to welcome S K Sales as our newest occupier at Copley Hill Trading Estate.

“This popular location, alongside other relevant trade supplier tenants, will reap fantastic benefits for them, I’m sure.”

Towngate was represented by Gent Visick and Carter Towler, with Paul Mack, director at Gent Visick saying: “Gelderd Road continues to be the number one destination in Leeds for trade counter and car showroom occupiers.

“Copley Hill Trading Estate provides highly sought-after accommodation in a prominent position fronting onto Gelderd Road.
