Biosurfactant company signs for 90,000 sq ft Wallasey industrial

Holiferm has agreed a 10-year lease for the warehouse at Ocean Trade and Logistics Park.

Legat Owen represented owner Dean Property Group on the deal, which will generate a rental income of £375,000 per year. The deal also means Ocean Park is now fully let. Fellow tenants at Ocean Park include Quickhire Events and particleboard manufacturer Finsa.

Located off Dock Road in Wallasey, Ocean Park is two miles from Junction 1 of the M53 motorway and located at the mouth of the East Float Dock and River Mersey.

Holiferm manufactures eco-friendly biosurfactants, which are used in home and personal care products, as well as industrial cleaners. The technology behind Holiferm’s products was developed at the University of Manchester.

“We are extremely excited to build our first full-scale plant at Ocean Park, which given the location has excellent logistical links to both suppliers and customers,” said Ben Dolman, chief exec­­utive at Holiferm.

“The size of the unit we have taken means we have capacity for rapid expansion on the site, enabling us to bring the transition to biosurfactants much quicker.”

Legat Owen surveyor Rupert Chadwick-Dunbar said: “Bringing Holiferm to the Wirral is a huge coup for area meaning new jobs and investment and we are pleased to have supported their expansion…

“Dean Property Group is a long-standing client and we currently act on a number of sites from Birkenhead to North Wales on both agency and professional work.”
