Have your say

Suon Industrials has sold two units totalling 16,800 sq ft on the Holmewood Industrial Park, in Chesterfield, to Tedd Engineering for £760,000.

Richard Smith, partner at hlw Keeble Hawson Solicitors, acted for Suon.

He said: “Tedd Engineering will occupy one of the sites themselves as they look to expand beyond their existing base in Ashbourne.

“Over the last two years in conjunction with CBRE we have bought six properties and sold three for Suon and it’s encouraging to see a good flow of commercial property deals like these going through in the current climate.”

Roger Haworth, senior director at the Sheffield office of property firm CBRE, added: “Deals such as this demonstrate the returning confidence of occupiers throughout the region.

”Over the last half of the year we have completed a number of transactions where firms from the engineering and manufacturing sectors have upgraded their premises as a result of business prosperity and this bodes well for continued market recovery in 2013.”
