Tao Sustainable Power Solutions is moving into The Forge at Crewe Hall Farm, an office conversion owned by The Duchy of Lancaster.

Tao, a subsidiary of Brazilian energy solutions company VSE, will take up the 2,700 sq ft office space at The Forge later this month after signing a five-year lease. The company said the move will create up to twelve new jobs over the next year.

Jim Vickerman, managing director of Tao Sustainable Power Solutions, said: "After looking at other offices in the Crewe area I decided on The Forge for its fantastic location, excellent parking facilities and access to the country's major road and rail networks.

"We also hope that the spacious accommodation will provide ample opportunity to support our future expansion plans. The offices have been converted to an exceptional standard and I believe that Crewe Hall Farm is the ideal launch pad for any new business seeking to relocate to the area. We are very much looking forward to moving in."

Nick Dart, surveyor of lands for The Duchy of Lancaster, added: "We are delighted with the response we have had and that Crewe Hall Farm's unique design and high quality specification has resulted in more than half of the available space having already been let."

Crewe Hall Farm has been owned by the Duchy of Lancaster since 1936. In partnership with Maple Grove Developments, the Duchy converted the five 19th Century farm buildings on the site into offices. The farm provides a total of 27,500 sq ft of office space with individual suites from 768 sq ft.

Lamonts Commercial and Knight Frank are the agents for the scheme.
