Fast move for security company during virus crisis

A manufacturing company has bought its own premises in Derbyshire so it can respond to the Coronavirus outbreak.

In a deal brokered by Salloway Property Consultants, Tamper Technologies has purchased the warehouse building on Ashbourne’s Airfield Industrial Estate.

The company offers a catalogue of hi-tech products including security tape and bag and carton tape which could be vital during the transport of equipment during the crisis.

Its security tapes and labels can be used for protection on several levels.

For example, security tapes are designed to stop people entering places and spaces they shouldn’t.

They will also show evidence on emergency trolleys and private drawers if anyone has attempted unauthorised access.

Tamper Technologies smart security solutions can also assist with brand protection and anti-counterfeiting.

The company snapped up the Ashbourne warehouse which only came to market on March 5.

Salloway Property Consultants surveyor, Hugo Beresford, said: “This shows that business can still be done during the coronavirus crisis.

He added: “Tamper Technologies are an exciting business and I’m delighted that they now have permanent premises on Moor Farm Road West, at the heart of this very popular industrial estate, with easy access on to the A52.”

“Despite the difficult conditions arising from the pandemic, not only does this deal demonstrates that the demand for the right property is unwavering, it shows that the property market is still functioning.

“With co-operation on all sides, it is still possible to complete property transactions quickly,” added Hugo.

Josh Green, director of Leaf Gifts Limited, commented: “We received an offer within 24 hours of our property going on the market.

“We are absolutely delighted. Not only with the whole sales process, which went smoothly from start to finish, but we also achieved above the asking price”
