Ashville site sold as Dairy Partners look to expand on popular business park

Fast-growing Dairy Partners has completed the purchase of a 4.5 acre development site on the Stroudwater Business Park at Stonehouse following a deal brokered by Bruton Knowles on behalf of clients Ashville Asset Management.

The site was originally purchased on behalf of clients by Ashville Asset Management who have a long history adding value to strategic land and providing high quality bespoke buildings for companies.  Consent was secured for a 90,000 sq ft commercial use on behalf of their clients before the land was marketed for sale as a whole or for bespoke design and build opportunities.

Bruton Knowles acted jointly with Cushman & Wakefield on behalf of Ashville in selling the land with the benefit of the planning consent.

Will Bennett from Dairy Partners said: “We are wanting to update our offices and warehousing as we have out grown our current location.  We wanted to stay within the business park as we have a well-established presence here – location wise, it is perfect for us.”

Robert Smith from Bruton Knowles’ Gloucester office said: “Dairy Partners is one of the fastest-growing independent businesses in the country producing mozzarella cheese for the UK, Europe and overseas markets from their sites in Gloucestershire and Carmarthenshire.”

Existing occupiers at Stroudwater Business Park include Schlumberger, Renishaw, Dairy Crest, Dentsply and Delphi.

In addition and in close proximity there is currently a further plot of 1.2 acres available to purchase as a whole or offer companies a design and build option.

Phil Cranstone from Cushman & Wakefield added: “Stroudwater Business Park offers bespoke design and build opportunities for businesses looking to expand in Gloucestershire.

“This is the latest phase of the business park which is already an established location  providing much needed accommodation for business in the Stonehouse and Stroud Valleys.

“Ashville have more than 45 years’ experience in providing bespoke buildings for businesses and are also able to offer the plots for sale. The developers are offering very flexible options in terms of freehold or leasehold basis. The Brunel Way site is available to purchase as a whole.”
