AVA Cooling expands into double-sized premises

AVA Quality Cooling, a provider of cooling applications for heavy duty, agricultural and commercial vehicles, has relocated to Rotherham, doubling its accommodation requirements.

The firm, which was previously headquartered in a 14,000 sq ft premises on Todwick Road in Dinnington, has upgraded and moved to a 30,000 sq ft unit at LCP Properties’ Eastwood Trading Estate on Chesterton Road in Rotherham.

The move by AVA Quality Cooling, which employs 20 staff in Rotherham, leaves just 10,000 sq ft of space at Eastwood Trading Estate which is being marketed by the Sheffield office of Knight Frank.

Ben White, associate at Knight Frank, said: “The move by AVA Quality Cooling is a great story of a company which is clearly showing signs of growth in South Yorkshire.”

AVA Quality Cooling is a leading international distributor for engine cooling and air-conditioning parts operating within five European subsidiaries in Denmark, England, France, Austria and Italy. Its headquarters and central warehouse is in Hilvarenbeek, the Netherlands, which serves AVA Benelux and Export customers.

Ben added: “We were originally appointed to market 40,000 sq ft at Eastwood Trading Estate, but the expansion and relocation of AVA Quality Cooling allowed LCP Properties to split the accommodation, leaving one 10,000 sq ft unit, which are in relatively short supply across the region.

“The remaining unit has been fully refurbished and provides an occupier with their own self-contained secure yard and offers good quality accommodation. It has been well upgraded and has all new fencing to create good quality of warehouse accommodation suitable for a variety of potential occupiers.”

Eastwood Trading Estate is located on Chesterton Road in Rotherham, close to both the M1 and M18 motorways.
