A ‘world class’ technology facility which was formerly home to Renishaw has been put on the market.
Engineering technology firm Renishaw moved out of North Staffordshire in 2019 as part of plans to relocate its additive manufacturing (AM) business, marketing and commercial activities to its New Mills headquarters in Gloucestershire.
Now its two Stone-based industrial buildings – which are ready-fitted out for high-tech processes and production – are being marketed property agents Harris Lamb and Carter Jonas.
The two buildings are located on Brooms Road on Stone Business Park which is also home to award-winning packaging firm Woolcool, mug manufacturer Dunoon and the Flip Out trampoline park.
Andrew Groves, of Harris Lamb’s Stoke office, based on Festival Park, said: “Having sold these buildings to Renishaw five years ago we are pleased to be involved again.
“The buildings offer unique high-quality specialist manufacturing and research space, having been fitted out for manufacturing technologies and 3D printing with laboratory testing facilities, and grade A quality offices.
“Such a specialist fit out makes these properties extremely attractive to companies requiring a high-tech manufacturing and research environment and offer significant cost savings compared to taking more traditional industrial space and undertaking fit out.”
Building one has a floor plate of between 9,085 sq ft and 38,451 sq ft and can be let as a whole or potentially in parts.
It boasts a warehouse, offices and reception as well as conferencing for up to 100 people, a technical services area, communications centre and a parking area for up to 73 vehicles.
Building two – which offers 42,125 sq ft of accommodation and is available as a whole, with lease terms to be negotiated – is arranged over two floors, with the ground floor dedicated to specialist production areas, laboratory rooms, offices and a refectory and the first-floor housing open plan and individual offices and conferencing facilities – and parking for up to 70 cars.
Andrew added: “Stone Business Park has enjoyed significant success over recent years, attracting a wide variety of occupiers due to its strategic location adjacent to the M6 and its easy access to Stafford and Stoke-on-Trent, and we anticipate strong levels of interest in these very specific industrial opportunities.”
