New location gives Dutch-owned agri-tech business room to grow

A Dutch-owned crop storage engineering business has started the year in new leased warehouse premises in Grantham, confirms the Lincoln agency office of Eddisons – formerly Banks Long & Co.

The move sees Farm Electronics Ltd, who manufacture ventilation & refrigeration crop storage equipment, consolidate from two sites on Grantham’s Alma Park Trading Estate, to a single building on the other side of the Lincolnshire town at Mallard Business Park on Trent Road.

The new premises, Unit 1, gives the engineering firm 15,898 sq ft of warehouse and office accommodation set on its own, independent site within Mallard Business Park’s wider secure and gated setting.

Mallard Business Park is managed by Grantham Estates, who manage in excess of 200 properties across the East Midlands and Eastern region.

There are four units in total at Mallard Business Park where Farm Electronics Ltd joins operators and distributors from a range of sectors, including stone & porcelain tiling, sewing & crafting, and clothing care tools & accessories.

According to Adam Fryer, Commercial Director, Farm Electronics Ltd, the company had been seeking new premises in which to expand for a while in looking to the end of its lease at Alma Park Trading Estate.

He said, “Our search had been low key for the past couple of years. While not retained as our agent, when Eddisons alerted us to availability at Mallard Business Park and brokered the introduction to Grantham Estates, it became clear that Unit 1 was the obvious location for the next phase of our planned business growth – which already sees us adding two new recruits this month to our current headcount of 13.”

In welcoming Farm Electronics to Mallard Business Park, James Moore, Estates Manager, Grantham Estates, added, “The park’s proximity to the A1 is one of its strongest features and, as such, Unit 1 attracted a number of enquiries after we began to market it last spring.

“However, following Eddisons introducing Farm Electronics to us, it was clear that this firm was in the best position to become the new tenant. That negotiations proceeded swiftly from there and concluded before the end of the year is a testament to the professionalism and focus of all parties involved.”
