Commercial property consultancy Bulleys has helped a specialist engineering firm to expand their business with a move to a larger premises.
Formed in 1969 by husband and wife team Neal & Gill Lanchbury and now run by their daughter and son-in-law, Andrea and David Giles; Workrest Blades is a family run business that manufactures, repairs, and refurbishes specialist parts used by car manufacturers such as Rolls Royce and Ford.
Previously based in Smethwick, West Midlands, the firm with the help of Bulleys has secured a new 3,300 sq ft of space at Unit 5 of Varney Business Park at Spon Lane in West Bromwich.
Commenting on the relocation, new Managing Director David Giles said: “This move is connected to what is already an expanding business, and I will be using my sales skills to help grow the company’s revenue.
“Workrest Blades currently has a workforce of six, and if things continue to grow, we will definitely have to take on new staff in the year ahead.”
Bulleys negotiated the letting of Unit 5 for £15,000 per annum, on a six-year, two-month lease on behalf of the business park’s landlord, Portrust Holdings Ltd.
Angela Holland, Agency Assistant at Bulleys, said: “Workrest Blades is experiencing a healthy increase in orders for its specialist engineering business.
“We’ve enjoyed helping the company to find the best property for its expansion plans and now look forward to watching the new owners continue its growth.”
