Prime embarks on £2m Wrexham shed refurb

The property manager is overhauling the 81,500 sq ft Ash Road North factory after its former occupier Wrexham Wire went into administration last year. 

Known as Wire 81, the property sits on a 5.6-acre site on Wrexham Industrial Estate, east of the town centre. 

Prime Property bought the unit out of receivership and plans to complete a £2m refurbishment in June. 

The refurbishment project includes upgrading 7,500 sq ft of office space, and the warehouse is to be re-clad. 

Speaking to Place North West, Imran Younus, commercial director of Prime Property, said the unit’s unique selling point was its 3,000KVA power supply, which would make Wire 81 suitable for use as a manufacturing facility.

“[The power supply] may prove the deciding factor to a manufacturer as there are so few facilities in the region that offer that level of power.”

He added: “We identified this site as one where we could really add value as there is such a shortage of quality industrial stock in the area.” 

B8 Real Estate and Legat Owen are the agents for Wire 81. 

Mark Diaper, associate director at Legat Owen, said: “There is a lack of supply of quality newly refurbished stock in Wrexham and this well-located property should appeal to occupiers looking to embark on their next stage of growth.  

“The acquisition and subsequent refurbishment programme will see this property once again likely be used for manufacturing use, creating jobs and further investment in the town.”
