Amber Business Centre – Derbyshire’s best performing estate?

Where other competing industrial estates remain vacant, Amber bucks the trend. 2011 has brought about 13 new occupiers and a take up of 70,000 sq ft. The estate has gone from 60% to 80% occupied within just 9 months.
The latest lettings which were brokered by Laura West, Surveyor at FHP Property Consultants include an indoor cricket and 5 aside football business, Treetops. Local entrepreneur Mark Armstrong has been searching for a long time to find the ideal unit for this popular and lucrative business venture. The 15,000 sq ft detached unit at Amber suited the business, with a healthy demand from local clubs, schools and individuals in the area and a limited supply of suitably qualified training centres. The unit at Amber which is due to open for business in October will help to promote further activity to the estate.

Bow Distribution and Warehousing Limited, who have for many years occupied premises behind the estate, have recently signed up to 25,000 sq ft at Amber. Bow Distribution and Warehousing Limited is an independent transport company which has extensive UK and international networks to meet the needs of their customers.

The local business has gone from strength to strength over recent years and as such the need for further space became apparent. Bow’s new unit benefits from a large secure yard and a prominent position on the estate. The unit offers this local business further room for growth and expansion.

Laura West, FHP Property Consultants explains:- “The success story at Amber is down to the ability to offer a wide range of fully fitted units that are ready for immediate occupation. Commercial Estates Group, owners of the Amber Business Centre have a hands on proactive approach to estate management. The team at Amber Business Centre carefully listen to the demands of local occupiers and pride themselves on delivering a first class service.”

Antonia Martin-Wright commented:- “Amber Business Centre is a flagship estate in a fantastic location with good access to the M1 and local amenities. The estate offers a range of accommodation to suit every occupier and through proactive and pragmatic management, many of our tenants are continually expanding on the park. I am confident that through attracting high quality occupiers to Amber Business Centre it will play a crucial role in boosting the local area’s economy.”
