Leading commercial property developer Stoford Developments has unveiled the next stage of development at its flagship Worcester Six Business Park.
The established developer has submitted plans for three units- two of which will be occupied by ZwickRoell, a world-leading supplier of static materials testing machines.
ZwickRoell, who plan to move their UK headquarters from their existing site ion Leominster, Hertfordshire to the 19,849 sq ft office and 10,000 sq ft assembly building; say that the move will help to “expand its facilities in the UK.”
Highlighting what this move means for the firm, Benno Sadowski, Managing Director for ZwickRoell, said: “We are delighted to be expanding our UK and Ireland operation. Our expansion as a business will mean that ZwickRoell can continue to offer the best consultation and partnerships with new and existing customers, whilst offering trust and confidence that ZwickRoell are committed to the UK market with or without Brexit decisions. As a family-run business ZwickRoell is committed to offering our customers and employees the very best state-of-the-art facilities, and we believe that this new facility will offer some excellent opportunities for growth.”
Provided the planning permission is granted by Worcestershire County Council, contractors would be on site by April, with a target of March 2021 for the completion.
Edward Peel, Development Manager at Stoford, said: “We’re pleased to have put forward plans for the next stage of development at Worcester Six, which is a world-class site in an area that has superb transport connections and a skilled workforce,” he said.
“It is encouraging to see the continued development on-site, where we have seen more than 700,000 sq ft of commercial space secured in the last three years. We look forward to welcoming yet another global tenant to the business park.
“Unit 10C is still available and subject to securing an occupier, we hope to be in a position to start on site quickly once we have achieved planning permission.”
