LCP: Upholsterer and furniture repair specialist opens his first standalone premises at The Pensnett Estate, Kingswinford

London, 2017-Aug-08 — /EPR Retail News/ — An upholsterer and furniture repair specialist with more than 20 years’ experience has opened his own business in the Black Country.

Gary Burns, who has worked for nationally known companies before setting up Classic Furniture Care 12 months ago, has agreed terms with leading investment and property management company LCP for his first standalone premises at The Pensnett Estate, Kingswinford.

He has taken Building 53A, Bay 6, a 426 sq ft unit at LCP’s flagship industrial estate after moving his fledgling business, which undertakes reupholstery, upholstery repairs and leather repairs, out of his mother’s garage.

“It was always my intention to have my own business premises and I wanted to make sure I had established myself as a sole trader before doing that,” said Gary, who lives nearby.

“I’ve been to The Pensnett Estate a number of times over the past 20 years for my work and was really pleased to find that it offered small units on flexible terms, which is ideal for start up businesses, so I was keen to take one on when I discovered the terms it could offer.”

Paula James, LCP industrial lettings manager, said: “The Pensnett Estate offers a huge range of premises for occupiers – from small start-up office spaces and industrial units of 450 sq ft to large buildings of 90,000 sq ft and more. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Gary as his business grows.”

LCP: commercial tarpaulins and marquees manufacturer Net and Cover Services moves to The Pensnett Estate, Kingswinford

London, 2017-Jun-12 — /EPR Retail News/ — A manufacturer of commercial tarpaulins and marquees has moved to new premises in the Black Country, commercial property investment and management company LCP has announced.

Net and Cover Services is moving to Building 53C, Bay 7, The Pensnett Estate, Kingswinford, after agreeing a three-year lease with LCP, which owns and manages the site.

Gary Waterhouse, who launched the company 10 years ago, is moving from the Bridge Trading Estate, Stourbridge, to take the 746 sq ft unit and now hopes the larger, more modern premises with separate office will enable him to grow his business.

“I needed to move to a ground-floor unit because it’s hard work carrying up stairs rolls of tarpaulin that weigh more than nine stone,” he said. “The new unit is ideal because it is modern and light, has a separate office and is also about 50 sq ft bigger.

“I put a sign outside saying that I’ll be opening on April 17 and had two calls from potential customers within a couple of hours, which is great. I’m looking forward to relocating the business.”

Net and Cover Services manufactures a wide range of tarpaulin products, from banners and boat covers to market stall covers and lorry sheets and side curtains, and has customers across the UK.

Paula James, LCP industrial lettings manager, said: “The Pensnett Estate has a wide range of premises that accommodate the smallest businesses to large, multi-nationals, and we’re very pleased to have been able to find Net Covers and Services a suitable unit.”

LCP to begin extension works at The Pensnett Estate

London, 2016-Dec-05 — /EPR Retail News/ — Work on the first stage of a major speculative development in the Black Country will begin in the first week of December, London & Cambridge Properties (LCP) has announced.

Construction workers will be on site behind LCP’s headquarters on its flagship business estate in Kingswinford to bring forward the industrial and warehouse units on a site now named Prime Point.

Completion of the units is expected in November 2017.

The configuration of the four industrial and warehouse units totalling 130,000 sq ft, means that potential tenants can take units between 10,000 and 40,000 sq.ft, said Andrew Preston, industrial portfolio manager at LCP.

“Void levels on the estate are low and we are receiving enquiries every week from companies looking for units in this size range, so we believe that this first phase will be very popular with businesses looking to relocate to the area,” he said.

“This is a significant investment for LCP that will be a real boost for the local economy. We are excited that the first phase will be underway shortly and look forward to welcoming new tenants to The Pensnett Estate.”

The Pensnett Estate is one of the largest secure business estates in Europe, and home to 160 businesses in over 2.4 million sq ft of commercial property. Three years ago, LCP invested £1.5 million in Progress Point, a speculative development on the estate comprising 21,000 sq ft of high quality warehouse and industrial space.

The Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership (BCLEP) has been supporting LCP with the latest development.  The contractor for the development is Telford-based McPhillips and LCP will be marketing the development.
