Stolle Machinery takes 158,000 sq ft in Burnley

Monte Blackburn’s Frontier Park estate off Accrington Road has secured its first pre-let.

Stolle Machinery has signed a lease for FP2, one of five units being built at Frontier Park in Burnley. The 157,700 sq ft FP2 is one of the larger sheds at Frontier Park, with the smallest being 39,000 sq ft and the largest being 158,800 sq ft. Each is set to achieve a BREEAM Very Good rating upon completion.

The canning machinery manufacturer is set to bring 200 jobs into the area when it arrives at FP2.

Stolle managing director Richard Mercer said: ‘’We are all very excited with the plans to move to our new building in Burnley.

“It is important to us as a business to continue to support our local community and retain a workforce in the local area,” he continued.

“Our new facility signals a huge commitment and financial investment to the area by our international parents.’’

Trevor Dawson and B8 Real Estate are the joint agents for Frontier Park in Burnley. Michael Cavannagh, director at Trevor Dawson described the pre-let to Stolle as “great news”.

“Stolle relocating to Frontier is fantastic news for Burnley,” Cavannagh said. “We are already in discussions with other occupiers with regard to other buildings on the business park”.

Freeths provided legal advice to Monte Blackburn on the lease deal. Stolle was unrepresented.

Planning permission for FP2 was secured last summer. Campbell Drive Partnership designed the space, with assistance from Dragon Fly Consulting, Sustainability Build, and Freeths. You can see the original application by searching reference number REM/2022/0683 on Burnley Council’s planning portal.
