Technology services provider becomes first tenant at refurbished Black Country industrial estate

A comprehensive refurbishment of a Black Country industrial estate has resulted in its first letting.

Leading technology services provider Probrand Ltd has become the first tenant in the rebranded estate, Smethwick Works.

The firm has moved into a 5,790 sq. ft. unit after signing a lease through leading property consultancy Fisher German.

Probrand Ltd delivers IT products, managed services and solutions to more than 3,500 clients across small to medium-sized businesses in all areas of the public sector.

Smethwick Works is a 61,220 sq. ft. scheme made up of eight units ranging from 5,500 sq. ft. to 13,600 sq. ft. which have been completely refurbished, re-roofed and redecorated throughout and benefit from new LED lighting.

The gated estate also features on-site parking and includes a secure CCTV system.

Mike Price, of Fisher German, said: “We are extremely pleased to welcome Probrand Ltd to Smethwick Works.

“It is a fantastic industrial estate which has been refurbished to a very high specification and is in an excellent location, based just half a mile from junction 1 of the M5.

“It features a total of eight units, but there is an option to combine some of these to provide larger units of up to 19,000 sq. ft. We have already received a good level of interest, with two other units already under offer.”

Joint agents for Smethwick Works are Fisher German, Darby Keye and Bulleys.
