Commercial unit is perfect fit for protective clothing specialist

A commercial unit has been let on Jubilee Park, Doncaster, to specialist ARC & Flame Protective Clothing & PPE manufacturer Skanwear Ltd as part of its expansion plans.

Agreed by Commercial Property Partners (CPP) on behalf of its client Priority Space, the 16,042 sq ft unit has been secured on a 10-year lease for the growing business, which operates globally and is relocating from its current base in Kirk Sandall, Doncaster.

Jubilee Park is a speculative development close to Doncaster Sheffield Airport. (DSA)

As well as warehousing provision, the agreed unit features a reception area, open plan offices and staff facilities.

Priority Space director, Lee Buchanan, said: “We’re pleased to work with our letting agents CPP & Knight Frank and agree terms with Skanwear, one of the leading electrical PPE providers in the UK. 

“We’re also confident that we will be making further announcements in the very near future as interest regarding the other available units on Jubilee Park continues to come in.”

Skanwear CEO, Richard Long, said: “This is a high spec’ quality unit that will allow us to grow with confidence with the right facilities and space to expand.

“It will also provide an excellent base for our staff and its central location is ideal for both clients and supply partners to reach.”

CPP partner, Ed Norris, added: “We think this is a great deal for both parties and, as a speculative development, it shows the continued confidence in the commercial property sector across South Yorkshire with premium ‘A’ rated spaces still coming to market.”

Knight Frank is joint letting agent. Partner Rebecca Schofield said: “The latest phase at DSA is proving popular with more announcements to follow.”
