Flooring company acquires new premises in Bristol

A Bristol-based flooring company has acquired new premises in the city.

Chauncey’s Timber Flooring Ltd, represented by Cushman & Wakefield, has bought Unit 1 at St Philips Trade Park.

The building comprises 18,135 sq ft of warehouse space and was previously owned by Collinson Tiles which was represented by Avison Young in the sale.

The unit is part of St Philips Trade Park, an established trade counter and industrial area of Bristol, two miles from the city centre.

Chris Yates, Associate in Cushman & Wakefield’s Logistics & Industrial team, said: “We are delighted to have helped a successful local business expand their operations by acquiring freehold premises in this central Bristol location. The market in this area of the city is very tightly supplied, particularly for freehold stock, so it was particularly rewarding to have found premises that will enable Chauncey’s to consolidate their operations into one central location.”

Ian Tomlinson, Managing Director at Chaunceys, commented: “Since our family business started trading in 1988, we have grown significantly, employing 22 staff and earning a client base that extends across the south west, London and internationally. We have been looking for the opportunity to expand our capacity for some time now. This new facility will allow us to increase our storage and production, building on our commitment to providing clients with the best possible product within the shortest possible lead time.”

Chauncey’s Timber Flooring Ltd is a family-run company which has been supplying sustainable, high-end, solid & engineered timber floors to both trade & retail customers for the last 32 years.
