Millfield celebrates full house at Longford

Continental Textiles has become the third tenant of Millfield Estates to expand its space in a run of deals that has filled Longford Trading Estate in Stretford.

The estate comprises 141,781 sq ft in total and Continental combined with fellow growing businesses Ego Shoes and Consumable Direct now account for a third of its space. Continental has taken an additional 4,224 sq ft, taking its total occupancy to 22,992 sq ft.

In April, footwear supplier Ego doubled its space, moving up to 11,885 sq ft, a deal that followed Consumable Direct’s 6,114 sq ft expansion – it now occupies 18,641 sq ft.

Longford Trading Estate is now fully let, with other tenants including Mosscare St Vincent’s Housing Group, Asforprint and Record Electrical Associates.

Paul Dobson, property director for Bolton-based Millfield Estates, said: “The ability to meet the need for additional accommodation for three of our tenants at Longford Trading Estate is testament to our property’s versatility and the quality of the units.

“Stretford is a vibrant industrial destination and we are certainly pleased that we are able to support these expanding businesses.

“At Millfield Estates we pride ourselves on tailoring our lettings to the tenants’ needs and with a wide variety of companies currently working at Longford Trading Estate, it was important once again that we did all we could to ensure that Ego Shoes, Consumable Direct and Continental Textiles were able to enjoy a smooth transition into their new larger premises.”

Jonathan Crewe, managing director for Continental Textiles, said: “With the benefit of what is regarded as one of the best industrial locations in the North West, it was imperative for us to grow our business within this area. Millfield Estates made the decision to expand at Longford Trading Estate incredibly easy for us.”
