Thriving businesses at Westpark

Business is thriving for a number of companies on Westpark, the 40 acre business park at Chelston, Wellington, just half a mile from junction 26 of the M5. Block 4, comprising 10 units, is now all sold with five of the 14 units in Block 3 sold, a further unit in solicitors’ hands and terms agreed on another. 

The remainder of the business park has land plots that are planned for commercial and employment uses including car showrooms, trade counters, hotel (due in Spring 2012), offices, industrial and business units.

There is a wide variety of occupiers already on site, ranging from office furniture to ink cartridge refill, commercial weighing machines to classic car restoration and equine stable matting. The Skylark pub and restaurant is already open for business.

Paul Seddon of Office Reality commented “The move to Westpark has given Office Reality the space and vision to grow the company. Since moving in sales have grown by 25% on last year and this year we hope to see similar levels of growth again.”

“The newly built business units and the proximity of the location to the M5 motorway were determining factors in the move. The area is well known to us but buying the new premises has enabled us to create the offices, showroom and stores that we have only aspired to before now”.

Guy Potter, MD of Ink2U, remarked “The move to Westpark has worked well for us and we have continued to expand our already well established internet business. Accessibility is key to our customer service and with this excellently served here we can continue to look at other ways of continuing to grow our business.”

Dave Clark, Director of Westco Bilanciai, says “We bought our own larger unit so we could expand both the size of our premises and our product range. We built a first floor office and have arranged the ground floor to optimise work efficiency. The on site pub and restaurant is a useful facility for lunchtimes and the planned hotel will be of particular help for our Chesterfield based Directors when they visit and stay.”

Prior to selling the last of the Units in Block 4, Summerfield built a further terrace of business units in Block 3, 40% of which have also sold. 

“Westpark offers a great local and regional business location, a mix of business uses and a variety of unit sizes for companies.” commented Ben Trickey of Summerfield. “These can be either ‘off the shelf’ or perfectly matched to suit the business needs. With the land plots around the business park benefiting from all the services and utilities the time it takes to deliver a finished building has been considerably shortened.”
