Pet food company swaps Macc for Manc at Trident
Pet food company, MPM Products, has agreed a 10-year lease on a 10,700 sq ft office within Property Alliance Group’s refurbished Trident at Manchester Airport.
The company, which has offices in the UK, Australia and the US, is relocating from its Macclesfield headquarters.
Alliance acquired Trident with JV partner Ares in January 2015 and invested £7.5m in a refurbishment, including a new 5,000 sq ft glass entrance which connects the three buildings that make up the scheme.
Rob Peill, head of offices at Alliance, said: “This deal with MPM Products leaves just 3,000 sq ft remaining at Trident. The rest of the space has all been let within just 18 months reflecting the broad appeal of this scheme. Like many of our other tenants, MPM was attracted to Trident because of its excellent transport links, the standard of the office accommodation and raft of onsite facilities.”
In 2016, MPM Products sold a majority stake to private equity firm ECI Partners to accelerate international expansion. Its core products ranges include Applaws and Encore, which are available in UK supermarkets, including Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Waitrose and Ocado.
MPM was advised by OBI Property. CBRE and Williams Commercial are retained as agents on Trident.
