UK HQ boxed up for packaging machinery manufacturer

A modern warehouse in Sherburn in Elmet has been acquired by a manufacturing business in a deal negotiated by property consultancy, Gent Visick.

Gent Visick acquired the 15,997 sq ft property on a freehold basis for TCY UK, the British arm of Taiwan-based TCY.

The firm makes box making machinery and has taken immediate occupation of Mayfair House on Lancaster Business Park.

TCY UK’s managing director, Rob Garvey, said: “By directly establishing a presence in the UK, TCY will be able to build on our UK customer base, as well as offering immediate access to a large parts inventory, and also gain a foothold in parts of Europe and North America too.

“Our firm has been producing specialist corrugated packaging machinery for over 60 years and we’re delighted to be able to bring that expertise, know-how and most importantly, direct support to our clients from here in the UK.”

Harry Fullerton, from Gent Visick’s agency division, said: “Mayfair House presented a rare opportunity for an owner occupier to buy a modern, purpose-built warehouse.

“With a large yard and parking area, the whole site spans almost an acre and was ready to move into straight away. We successfully negotiated a substantially reduced price for TCY that the firm was delighted with.”
