Rescue company takes on industrial space to establish northern HQ

A confined space, rescue, training and utilities specialist has established its new northern base in Doncaster to address national provision for its services.

Rescue 2 Ltd has taken 13,000 sq ft at the newly constructed Jubilee Park, built alongside Platinum Park, by developer Priority Space in partnership with HG Sites, to satisfy the growing demand for smaller industrial occupiers in the region.

Rescue 2 Ltd joins new tenants PPE provider Skanwear which upsized its operations in South Yorkshire with a move to a 16,000 sq ft unit at Jubilee Park to manufacture and distribute its products to safeguard against electric shock and arc flash, plus other occupiers Jones Electrical, Dynamic CCTV and Assured Group.

Ashley Goodlad, from Rescue 2 Ltd, said: “With sites in both the South and the North, we are strategically positioned to elevate our services across all regions. Our dual presence allows us to scale our services to meet corporate demands on a national level.

“We set the required gold standard across the industry. Our can do attitude, ability to scale up with quality and provide bespoke, necessary rescue, utilities, training, and management provision, can now be offered to clients across the country.”

The company, whose southern base is in West Sussex, employs more than 200 rescue technicians, 50 specialist trainers.

Jubilee Park sits alongside sister development Platinum Park which provides 13 industrial units, ranging in size from 1,750 sq ft to 5,800 sq ft.

Kitty Hendrick, surveyor in the Knight Frank Sheffield office, who is marketing both sites, said: “There are a range of unit sizes available to cater for a wide range of space requirements, and the occupier line-up so far is testament to the quality of the accommodation.

“There is little availability of small to mid-sized industrial units across South Yorkshire, and Platinum and Jubilee Park address the demand for units of this size across the region whilst creating jobs and boosting the local economy.”

Priority Space director, Lee Buchanan, said: “These new units are very well-placed in Doncaster with excellent connections and provide businesses with the space and facilities they need to expand and invest in growth.

“We are also pleased with the news that lease negotiations are underway on Doncaster Sheffield Airport and that the airport could be reopened in 2024/25, which would provide a huge boost to the local economy and will make Platinum and Jubilee Park even more appealing to occupiers, with an operating airport on the doorstep of the scheme.”

Councillor Glyn Jones, cabinet member for business at City of Doncaster Council, said: “It is great to see companies expanding into these excellent new industrial units.

“These units, being available for sale or let are exactly what is required in Doncaster at this present time, and offer a quality opportunity for businesses new to Doncaster or who want to upgrade their facilities.

“There is still confidence in our economy and Business Doncaster with the help they can provide look forward to helping bring more new investors to this site.”
