Growth prompts local move for timber supplier
An industrial warehouse unit in St Neots has been let by the Huntingdon office of Eddisons incorporating Barker Storey Matthews to a local timber merchant whose business had outgrown its previous premises in the Cambridgeshire town.
The St Neots branch of Bedford Timber Supplies Ltd has relocated to 4b Marston Road – a 12,850 sq ft (1,193.7 sq m) warehouse unit – from a unit on Levellers Lane, St Neots where it had been located for over 20 years.
The company, which serves the trade and the general public, had been seeking new premises for over a year before securing a new lease on 4b Marston Road through Eddisons – who was the sole agent acting on behalf of the landlord.
Speaking about the recent relocation, Bedford Timber Supplies Ltd branch manager, Tony Barnett, said, “With a growing customer base in the region and twelve employees who live in the area, we needed to find larger premises but still remain in St Neots.
“The search for the right premises took time. But we now have a warehouse and trade counter unit from where we can serve our existing customer base and accommodate the business’s expansion as we, together with our Bedford branch, extend our reach to new customers.”
Richard Adam of Eddisons added, “In a fast moving industrial property market, occupiers can feel tempted to settle for a unit which doesn’t fully meet their essential property requirements.
“In its taking time, Bedford Timber Supplies has found a warehouse unit from where it can trade successfully for a number of years in line with the company’s business plans.”
