Kenilworth has welcomed the UK’s number one trade kitchen supplier, which following a major fitout and refurb, has opened a new site in the town in a let agreed through Leamington-based ehB Reeves.

The 5,045 sq.ft premises on Farmer Ward Road, which is located to the east of the town centre, is home to Howdens and includes a reception area, offices and on-site parking.

A spokesperson for Howdens said: “We have been looking for the right property in Kenilworth for some time and are very pleased to be opening our new depot at Farmer Ward Road as part of our ongoing expansion programme.”

Howdens’ latest branch, which opened its doors recently, joins more than 750 depots it has across the UK, supplying fitted kitchens to trade customers.

Property consultancy Montagu Evans acted on behalf of Howdens, which also supplies fitted bedrooms and a vast array of joinery and hardware.

Simon Hain, director at chartered surveyors and commercial property firm ehB Reeves, said: “Howdens is something of a household name so it’s great that they have chosen Kenilworth to be the base for their newest depot.

“It clearly demonstrates the appeal of Kenilworth, and Warwickshire more generally, to businesses looking for a central location with fantastic transport links with major motorways, railways and airports within touching distance.”

ehB Reeves enjoys a wide management portfolio in excess of £110 million across all areas of the commercial property sector in the West Midlands. Its four directors have a combined track record of more than 100 years experience in the region’s market.
