Sorbon Estates, the commercial arm of Buckinghamshire-based Shanly Group, announces that it has agreed a new lease with local precision manufacturing firm, Jenkins Engineering, for 6,060 sq ft at the Reform Trade Park in Maidenhead. Following this most recent letting, the Reform Trade Park is now fully let.
Sorbon Estates acquired The Former Dairy Crest site in July 2016 and undertook a substantial refurbishment and upgrade programme, splitting the building into four light industrial/trade counter units to become the Reform Trade Park. The site is nestled in the busy industrial location on Reform Road in Central Maidenhead benefiting from easy access via the A4 and M4 and situated within walking distance of Maidenhead’s town centre, retail amenities and transport interchange. Jenkins Engineering, has been based in Maidenhead since its inception in the late 1970s and was keen to retain its presence in the town. It is upsizing from its current accommodation based at Waldeck House on Waldeck Road, which has been earmarked by the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Council for redevelopment.
Founded by Cliff Jenkins in 1979, Jenkins Engineering has built up a loyal customer base over the last forty years. Operating across sectors such as automotive, aerospace, railway and alternative energy, the dynamic company provides high quality CNC milling and turning and produces machine components.
Tamra Booth, Managing Director at Sorbon Estates, said: “Jenkins Engineering is a local, family-run business that is a part of the fabric of Maidenhead’s business community, so we are really pleased to have been able to work with the business to facilitate its growth and retain their presence in Maidenhead.

With the scheme now fully let, we look forward to watching the businesses there continue to thrive, benefitting not only them but also the wider area.”
