Plumbing firm snaps up two industrial units at Boscombe Down


Two large industrial units on the Boscombe Down Business Park near Amesbury have been snapped up by a plumbing firm.

Plumbstop Ltd has acquired Units 13-4 and 15-16, at the Mills Way Centre in a deal brokered by property consultancy Myddelton & Major.

Quoting leasehold rent for the combined 5,925 sq ft single facility was £29,500 per annum on a 10-year lease.

The independent firm’s new outlet forms part of the Mills Way Centre, located on Boscombe Down Business Park, which is within close proximity of the Solstice Park junction, with access to the A303.

Myddelton & Major Partner Dean Speer said: “Plumbstop, established in 1991 by founder Peter Fitzcharles in Cirencester, is an expanding business now with 19 branches across Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Dorset, Somerset, Devon and Cornwall.

“Plumbstop offer a full range of bathroom, plumbing and heating supplies. We welcome the business to this strategically-positioned unit for which there was strong interest.

“We are continuing to see an increasing demand for industrial and commercial premises across the region and this business park is proving able to offer the flexibility on scale and design so desired by many companies.”
