Despite the current economic conditions, there is still plenty of good news for Wigan businesses.
One success story is WR Estates, owners of the Bradley Hall Trading Estate in Standish who have announced that tenant demand still remains high. A total of 20 tenants have renewed their leases and a further six new leases have been signed since the start of 2009.
Cllr David Molyneux, Deputy Leader of Wigan Council and Cabinet Member for Regeneration and the Environment said: “The continued success of Bradley Hall Trading Estate is definitely welcome news in this economic climate. It proves that although we are feeling the effects of the recession, Wigan Borough is continuing to flourish.”
The 65 acre Bradley Hall Trading Estate is an established business location within two miles of junction 27 of the M6. The estate has over 130 industrial units housing many different industries and businesses including:
Systems Power which was already one of the largest tenants on Bradley Hall Trading Estate has further expanded its operations by taking on an additional unit. Mark Smith, Managing Director of Systems Power said:
“Although many industries seem to be suffering in the recession we have found that there has been an increase in export demand for high voltage equipment. This has meant that we needed to expand and fortunately there was sufficient space available on Bradley Hall Trading Estate to allow us to grow without having to relocate.”
The Caravan Warehouse, a company which specialise in selling new and second-hand caravans, has also recently grown, doubling its space by expanding into the unit next door to their existing premises.
CW Motors, which sells commercial and domestic vehicles have recently relocated to the Standish Court area of the estate. Chris Wallace of CW Motors said: “Bradley Hall Trading Estate has an excellent reputation and we knew that it was the ideal location for CW Motors. The relocation has given us the opportunity to continue to drive our business forward.”
Eco-Envirotech, which recycle old computers and monitors, selling the useful parts both to the UK marketplace and abroad have also signed a new lease.
W R Estates are performing well through the current economic climate due to their value for money leasing packages with flexible terms. The tenants are keen to keep doing business and WR try to provide them with the right secure, environment for them to perform in.
There are still a variety of vacant units available, varying from small start up units to large institutional stock. WR Estates are willing to negotiate competitive terms.
