Northern Trust has secured two key lettings at the Airport Industrial Estate in Newcastle. Premier Meats has taken Unit 1AB totalling 5,446 sq ft whilst national company Screwfix Direct Ltd has leased Unit 21 on a 10 year lease agreement.
Premier Meats who have been operating since the mid 1980’s have recently opened the doors on their new premises, which includes an ancillary retail section and a concept kitchen where they can demonstrate their products to both trade and public customers. Mark Whittaker of Premier Meats commented “The premises at Airport Industrial Estate are our second Centre of Meat Excellence. Open 7 days a week our new unit has been fitted out with a state of the art kitchen and we are planning to provide a number of cooking demonstrations over the coming months.”
Meanwhile Screwfix Direct, the UK’s largest multi channel supplier of trade tools, plumbing, electrical, bathrooms and kitchens to tradesmen, handymen and DIY enthusiasts, has completed the letting of their 5,300 sq ft unit on Airport Industrial Estate. The Newcastle branch is one of over 160 branches nationwide for this established company.
Louise Elliot of Whittle Jones, agents acting on behalf of Northern Trust added “Airport Industrial Estate is in an ideal location with a wide range of units available on flexible terms. We are delighted to have secured two excellent lettings to Premier Meats and Screwfix Direct Ltd and we are sure they will enhance our (already attractive) list of occupiers. Screwfix Direct already occupy other premises within the Northern Trust portfolio and we are pleased to be involved with their expansion plans through the opening of their new trade premises on the estate. After the recent economic downturn there is now a real feeling of optimism amongst existing tenants with the investment in this estate by two significant occupiers.”
