New letting at Bridgwater’s Showground Business Park

Two industrial units at Bridgwater’s Showground Business Park have been let to Vuba Chemical Innovations Limited, a rapidly growing and award-winning resin bound surfacing manufacturer, as it expands its operations and infrastructure to better cater to its South West market.

1 & 2 Festival Units at The Showground Business Park comprise c.12,000 sq ft of modern light industrial space, following a comprehensive refurbishment to a high standard. The premises provides an excellent South West base for Vuba, and the landlord was delighted to bring another established operator with a distribution / trade counter focus to the Business Park.

Vuba Operations Director, James Purdy, commented: “We are delighted to have secured a position at the Showground Business Park. The quality of the refurbishment fits in line with our brand image and the location cements our presence within the South West, a major growth market for us.”

Vuba has achieved remarkable recognition in the industry, earning prestigious accolades for its entrepreneurial spirit and rapid growth. The company is a two-time winner of the FEBE Awards Top 100 and was listed among the Financial Times’ Top 1,000 Fastest Growing Companies in Europe for the year 2022.

Also available for immediate occupation next door are Units 3 & 4. Offering a flexible solution to occupiers, the units are able to accommodate requirements from 4,750 – 12,500 sq ft and are ideal for distribution, light industrial, trade counter or research and development occupiers.

The Showground Business Park is excellently positioned, just off the A38 Taunton Road, a key arterial road providing direct access to Junction 24 of the M5 Motorway, with neighbouring occupiers including Westerly BMW / Mini, GAP Hire Solutions and Langdons. The site is also within easy reach of Bridgwater town centre.

“Bridgwater is becoming an increasingly popular destination for both logistics and manufacturing occupiers. It’s easy access to the M5 and Hinckley Point C, both of which add to the appeal of the location for national occupiers looking to expand in the South West,” said Alex Quicke, Surveyor in the Industrial and Logistics team based in CBRE’s Bristol office.

“Somerset Council’s exciting plans for Bridgwater, in addition to the recently reported major manufacturing investment at Gravity Business Park are likely to boost the area’s appeal and demand for Bridgwater as an industrial location only further for both growing and established businesses.”

CBRE and Alder King act as joint agents for the landlord.
