Firem lets 55,000 sq ft in Wrexham
Howdens Joinery and logistics company Gorton Brothers will move into units recently completed by FI Real Estate Management at the city’s industrial estate.
Gorton Brothers has signed a 15-year lease on the 45,000 sq ft Unit 72b off Clywedog Road East, relocating from its existing site at Clywedog Road North.
Howdens has signed for 10,000 sq ft across five units at the nearby Wrexham Point, located off Clywedog Road North.
A further six units ranging from 3,357 sq ft to 5,013 sq ft are still available at Wrexham Point.
FI Construction completed work on both 72b and Wrexham Point earlier this year.
“This completion underpins our commitment to Wrexham and our determination to use our presence as a quality industrial developer to support growing businesses in Wrexham and supports the local economy as a whole,” said Tim Knowles, founder and managing director of FI Real Estate Management.
Firem is the largest land owner at the 1,360-acre Wrexham Industrial Estate and has plans to take its portfolio to 2.2m sq ft of new build commercial space with roadside retail, leisure, industrial and trade counter units.
Future plans include a single 150,000 sq ft unit off Clywedog Road South and the redevelopment of Bridgeway Centre on Bridge Road to create industrial units ranging from 900 sq ft to 8,400 sq ft.
“High-quality commercial space is in huge demand across the country and Wrexham’s excellent connectivity places it at the top of the list,” Knowles said.
“Our development strategy in North Wales will ensure these businesses also have access to a diverse variety of space that suits their needs.”
