Timber firm takes space at £220m business park

A manufacturer of structural timber components has taken 110,000 sq ft of industrial space at the £220m Botany Bay Business Park in Chorley.

James Donaldson has signed a lease for Unit F&G, meaning the company is able to retain jobs in the town. 

FI Real Estate Management (FIREM) also has a further three tenants in the final legal stages for properties within blocks C&D, as the current phase of development reaches 45 per cent occupancy before any units have achieved practical completion. 

FIREM is constructing phase one of the one million sq ft development, which will provide predominantly Grade A industrial accommodation. 

Tim Knowles, founder and managing director of FI Real Estate Management, said: "It's fantastic to see how much interest is being generated in Botany Bay Business Park. Our site is able to cater for businesses of all sizes, from local Chorley companies seeking more space, to national brands looking for a convenient location to reach the North West. 

"We're able to work closely with tenants to tailor their unit to suit their needs, with bespoke fit-out and plug in and play options, which is really valuable. Being based next to the motorway is also an advantage, with tenants on site able to reach both Liverpool and Manchester easily. 

"Now that we've got our first tenants signed up, we can see the community we're building in the heart of Chorley, not only creating new jobs for local people, but also amenities for everyone to enjoy."
