The 30,000 sq ft production unit was formerly occupied by De La Rue and will be used by Winkworth as their UK Headquarters, following relocation from their historical base near Reading. Winkworth is a long established manufacturer of industrial mixing and blending machines, selling its product throughout the world over the last 90 years and to such multi-national companies as Unilever, Kraft and Rolls Royce.
Following a change of ownership Winkworth made the strategic decision to move into a single modern building from their previous complex of older accommodation and instructed London Clancy to carry out a preliminary search of suitable opportunities and then enter into detailed negotiations with the preferred option at Stroudley Road.
Mark Clancy of London Clancy says "Having carried out the initial search, it soon became clear that the available options were limited and we were, therefore pleased to secure a very competitive deal on behalf of Winkworth."
Grant Jamieson, Managing Director at Winkworth comments "Our search for new premises had to meet a demanding brief, not just building, location, facilities and look, but also timescale.
Our clock was ticking and in just 9 months we had searched, selected, negotiated, designed, moved out and moved in, a big deal when you're a heavy engineering company with 90 years of history!
The choices were very limited for a business like ours, a volume need, adaptability for cranes to be installed, minimal staff disruption and sales, design and manufacturing all to be under one roof were challenging criteria. We needed industrial, but also world class headquarters, so we are delighted with what we now have.
Mark was responsive and attentive in assisting me and my team with the selection process and his experience helped us through a journey an operating business like ours rarely takes, which saved us money and time!"
