Transport firm takes 9,800 sq ft in Warrington
Skillray has purchased the building previously occupied by Galliford Try at Trinity Office Park for an undisclosed sum.
Established in 2003, the transport firm supplies truck parts to more than 300 workshops nationwide and has now moved all its operations from Hardwick Grange in Woolston to the Trinity property.
Skillray has acquired the 9,800 sq ft building from Tandem Investments, which recently led the rebrand of the Warrington business park situated off Crab Lane in Fearnhead.
Trinity’s rebranding follows the departures earlier this year of the site’s previous tenants, Galliford Try and EOS Solutions.
Galliford previously occupied the 9,800 sq ft property, as well as another 4,500 sq ft unit, before signing a 10-year lease in August on 16,200 sq ft at Birchwood Park.
Having occupied 10,200 sq ft at Trinity, EOS is now based at Lytham House off Kelvin Close.
Richard Rees, director and asset manager at Tandem Investments, noted that the property previously home to EOS is currently undergoing a “comprehensive refurbishment”.
“We are working towards an A Rating Energy Performance Certification and anticipate the leasehold demand in Warrington turning its head to this property”, he added.
BE Group and Cushman & Wakefield acted as joint agents on behalf of Tandem Investments.
Simon Roddam, head of agency at BE Group, said: “On average 65% of office transactions in the Birchwood area come from local occupiers relocating within this micro-location.
“With the current flight-to-quality market trend, and a need for flexibility, we feel Trinity ticks a lot of boxes and will provide some very good quality office supply to a buoyant part of the Warrington office market”.
