Furniture firm moves in to Bluestone Centre

A furniture manufacturing company has acquired an industrial/warehouse unit at the rapidly-filling Bluestone Centre at Amesbury.

Bluestone is the first new business centre development for more than a decade on the town’s giant 160-acre Solstice Park.

Alexia Le Clerc & Austin Ltd has taken a five-year lease on the 1,485 sq ft (137.96 sq m) Unit 9 which had a quoting leasehold rent of £8,750 per annum.

Property consultancy Myddelton & Major successfully negotiated the deal.

Myddelton & Major Commercial Agency Surveyor Gary Mead said: “I was delighted to help a new company acquire premises at this quickly-filling centre.

“It certainly shows confidence in both the local economy and the quality of Bluestone itself to see new businesses moving in.”

Bluestone is the first new business centre development at the strategically-located Solstice Park since the Beacon Centre in 2005.

It is significant for employment prospects in Wiltshire with 131,630 people of employment age living within a 30 minute drive.”

The 36-unit centre is being developed by Salisbury-based Nationwide Engineering Group with the first phase of 12 units completed in 2017.

Solstice Park, Amesbury, just nine miles north of Salisbury, has good links to the motorway network via the A303/M3 to London and to the north via the A34 to the M4 and M40.
