Sole letting agents Impey & Company has secured an occupier for Southfield Development’s speculative industrial scheme in Bredbury Stockport.

Screwfix, the UK’s largest multi-channel retailer of trade tools, accessories and hardware products, has committed to the second phase of Southfield 25 totalling 4,000 sq.ft., having agreed a ten year lease.

Southfield 25 on Ashton Road Bredbury comprises 10 trade counter unit totalling 40,000 sq.ft. and can accommodate requirements units from 4,000 sq.ft. to 16,000 sq.ft.  The unit is due to be ready for occupation next month.

The letting to Screwfix follows the announcement last month that half of the first phase of the scheme, comprising 8,500 sq.ft. has been let to national vehicle van hire operator, Northgate Plc, which took a 15 year lease.

Michael Blackshaw of Impey & Company said “Southfield 25 occupies a prime location benefiting from main road frontage and with excellent access to the principal arterial roads serving Stockport, the M60 and beyond.

It is no surprise that this quality scheme has generated significant interest from national trade counter operators and we already have two further units currently under offer”.
