UK’s leading wholesale tableware supplier, Utopia Tableware, has secured a space of 168,000 sq ft in a prime unit located in Langham Park near Chesterfield.
Forming part of their broader £15 million expansion, Utopia completed the purchase of One Langham Park at Temple Normanton; with agents Knight Frank and JLL brokering the sale.
Mark Rammell, owner and CEO at Utopia Tableware, said: “This is a great opportunity for Utopia, it allows us to increase capacity and hold more stock throughout our whole hospitality range. Our total number of distributors has grown rapidly during 2018, and we now have over 1,100 sales representatives promoting our products across the world.
“The new warehouse facility has been purpose-built to accommodate our Hospitality Division, and we have also installed additional office space and a showroom at the new unit.”
Part of the companies growth strategy – which sees them retaining one unit at Holmewood Industrial Park – also includes retaining staff and providing vital transport links towards the motorway.
Rebecca Schofield, Partner at Knight Frank, said: “The sale of One Langham Park is a milestone for Utopia Tableware as it expands the business from three, mid-sized existing premises to consolidate most of its operations under one roof following substantial market share grow in 2018 and the start of 2019, both in the UK and overseas.
“The unit is just two miles from the company’s remaining depot at Holmewood Industrial Park and provides a high specification facility with 12-metre eaves height, 15 dock-level loading doors and large secure loading yard, key requirements for the business.”
