Deal sees Midlands industrial unit reach full occupancy

A recently refurbished industrial estate on the outskirts of Birmingham has clinched its final long-term letting to reach full occupancy.

Floristry distributor All Occasions Fulfilment Limited has agreed a deal to let a 13,598 sq ft unit at Smethwick Works, which is based on Spring Road in Smethwick.

The deal was facilitated by property consultants Fisher German, one of the commercial agents representing Mileway, who are the landlords of Smethwick Works.

The estate received a back to frame refurbishment, emphasising the ongoing confidence in the industrial occupational market which was rewarded by significant take-up.

The final letting on the estate will see All Occasions Fulfilment Limited using the space to support their distribution of flowers for companies such as Spar, Interflora and Amazon.

The letting concludes a prolific lettings record at Smethwick Works for Fisher German, which has seen the property consultants securing tenants for five out of the seven occupied units – which covers 61,220 sq ft in total.

Mike Price, head of commercial agency at Fisher German, said: “We are delighted to have helped play a key role in helping our clients accomplish their business plan for the estate, generating new customers for Mileway and turning Smethwick Works into a scheme where businesses can realise their potential to develop and grow.

“These lettings are a real vote of confidence for the Birmingham and Black Country business community, and underlines business resilience during what is an economically challenging time for all sectors.

“The businesses that have been attracted to these high quality units range from a floristry distributor and transport company, through to an IT firm – demonstrating that the demand for commercial space remains strong across various industries.”
