KDC Contractors has taken unit 1 Sharston Green at £6.25/sq ft for ten years, setting a new record industrial rent for the area.
The decommissioning, demolition and remediation specialist joins other occupiers such as Airline Services and the Authentic Food Group.
The 28,000 sq ft Sharston Green distribution/production unit is located close to Manchester Airport and just five miles away from Manchester city centre.
Gareth Pierce, a surveyor in acting agents CB Richard Ellis' North West Industrial agency team, said: "Locations like Sharston Green are ideal for businesses that require easy, frequent access to major transport links to the rest of the North and the UK.
"There are still high quality facilities available for businesses looking to relocate to a more suitable location, despite the challenges facing the commercial property market at present."
King Sturge acted as joint agents for a Fund managed by Scottish Widows Investment Partnership.
