BioToolomics have been occupiers on the estate since 2012 and approached Whittle Jones about taking additional space to complement their existing 1,550 sq ft laboratory facility. A 5 year lease was agreed on Unit 32B which takes their occupancy to over 6,600 sq ft.
Chad Zhang, Managing Director at BioToolomics commented “BioToolomics develop and manufacture innovative bioprocessing chromatography products to a worldwide market. Our business expansion requires a good combination of high standard office and manufacturing space at a reasonable cost. Whittle Jones have been very supportive during our facility expansion process, and in particular Barry Nelson who has helped us in achieving our ambitions, without having to relocate away from Number One Industrial Estate.”

Unit 32B has been fully refurbished internally to include a new office with kitchenette to the occupier specification; upgraded WC’s, renewed doors and windows, plus LED lighting which followed external cladding recoating works.”
