Harworth Group plc, a leading regenerator of land and property for development and investment, has successfully let one of its two remaining built units at the flagship Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP) site in Rotherham.
Safety Engineering Products Limited, a leading UK designer, manufacturer and supplier of height safety equipment, has taken a ten-year lease on a 13,223 sq. ft unit. The company is expanding its present Sheffield operation and will be moving into the unit in the spring as part of its plan to increase production following successfully delivered projects at the likes of Battersea Power Station and Canary Wharf.
This deal means that only one unit – the 17,359 sq. ft Unit 5A – remains to let at the Advanced Manufacturing Park. Harworth has now built 1.5m sq. ft of its 2.1m sq. ft consent, aimed specifically at growing manufacturing businesses wanting to be close to the University of Sheffield’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre and existing occupiers at the park including Boeing, Rolls-Royce, McLaren Automotive and the UK Atomic Energy Authority.
The AMP forms part of Waverley, Yorkshire’s largest ever brownfield redevelopment set over 750 acres that has already delivered 900 new homes of a 4,000 home consent and will also deliver a range of new community & leisure facilities. Over 2,000 people now work at the AMP, four times the number that worked at the former Orgreave Colliery & Coking Works that sat on the site over three decades ago, and is estimated to deliver a total of 3,500 high-value jobs once fully developed.
