GJS Dillon helps expanding Bromsgrove company move into new premises

Acting on behalf of a private investor, Worcestershire commercial property consultancy GJS Dillon has sold the freehold of an industrial unit in Bromsgrove to a national specialist water and wastewater contractor.

Kyle Pugh, Graduate Surveyor at GJS Dillon, sold Unit A Sorenson House to Watertight Management. The 3,592 sq ft warehouse/industrial premises comprises mezzanine, office and warehouse accommodation with generous eaves height. There is also a loading/unloading bay and 10 parking spaces.

This will be the second property on Saxon Business Park in Bromsgrove purchased by the company through GJS Dillon. In 2017 the Agency team negotiated Watertight Management’s purchase of the freehold of Dearham House, a grade A warehouse with ground and first floor offices, close to Sorenson House.

Watertight Management was established in 2010 and provides a wide-range of end-to-end water and wastewater services, Civil engineering and surfacing for a variety of customers including the Ministry of Defence (MoD), major utility companies, local councils and many commercial and domestic users.

As Tom Collings, Watertight Management’s Commercial Manager explains, this latest purchase supports the company’s expansion plans: ‘Essentially we’ve outgrown our previous premises and the additional space at Sorenson House will enable us fulfil all our contracts for our customers, recruit more staff and accommodate our fleet vehicles. We’re also continuing our Building Heroes training courses and plan to adapt part of our accommodation into a training and conference room. We regard GJS Dillon as our go-to on the local commercial property market and were pleased to work with them on this purchase’

‘This unit was highly sought after. Demand far exceeds the supply of industrial properties throughout Worcestershire in general, and in Bromsgrove in particular’ says Mr Pugh.

‘Bromsgrove remains one of the most attractive business locations in Worcestershire because of its superb connectivity. With this in mind, it is still an excellent time for freeholders to bring their industrial property to the market.’
