Two deals at West Yorkshire estate

Two new tenants have agreed deals for units at the Ripley Close industrial estate in Normanton, West Yorkshire.

Medical Gas Supplies and Hey Safe Cleaning have both taken just under 5,000 sq ft on five-year leases.

The latest deals follow the letting of Unit 8, which extends to 4,802 sqft, to Anglian Group, also on a five-year lease.

The 43,000 sq ft estate was recently purchased by Ribston, a property business specialising in multi-let industrial estates. The company has undertaken a major refurbishment which has including re-roofing, recladding the elevations of the whole estate and refurbishing the vacant units internally. 

The estate comprises nine industrial units and a large, secure shared yard, is situated off Junction 31 of the M62. It is already home to tenants including Solupak, the Anglian Group and Flue & Ducting.

The Leeds offices of property consultancies Knight Frank and Gent Visick brokered the two deals.

Tom Goode, of Knight Frank's industrial team in Leeds, said: "Ripley Close is in a well-established location, within one mile of J31 of the M62 motorway, which provides direct access to the close-by wider motorway network. We have seen good interest to date and these two lettings are a testament to the refurbishment works that Ribston has undertaken."

Paul Mack, director at Gent Visick, added: "West Yorkshire is becoming an increasingly popular industrial property location and, now the refurbishment has been completed, we expect substantial interest in the final three vacant units at Ripley Close."
