Whitford pays £2.7m for new Runcorn base

Eileen Bilton Partnership has acquired 69,500 sq ft at Stuart Road, Manor Park, Runcorn for plastics giant Whitford, to facilitate expansion of the business.

Whitford, part of Whitford Worldwide, manufactures fluoropolymer coatings and has been established in Runcorn since the early 1970s. The deal secures the skilled workforce within Halton.

The Stuart Road premises are close to their current base at Christleton Court but offer larger and higher quality accommodation, comprising linked warehouse and office units with expansion land. The property will be converted to provide production, warehouse, labs and offices.

The property was sold for a price in the region of £2.7m after Whitford had been looking for a suitable home for almost two years.

Eileen Bilton Partnership acted for Whitford throughout. The vendor, Commercial Estates Group, was represented by BE Group.
