THREE units have been let to businesses - including a gym and printing company - on Wrexham Industrial Estate.

FI Real Estate Management (FIREM) has started the year with a trio of lettings at what is its largest and expanding industrial site.

The company was given the green light to create over 200,000 sq ft of additional industrial units on previously unused land on the estate in July 2019 and appointed Rebecca Morgan into a newly created role of business development manager in October 2019 to assist businesses that are looking to relocate to the estate.

Amongst the new tenants is a new gym brand, Q Fitness (NW) Limited who have signed a 10 year lease for their 2,962 sq. ft space. They opened for business in January and believe that the site has great potential, with over 350 businesses employing approximately 11,000 workers on the estate.

The two other tenants who have signed new leases with FIREM are Technical Colour Supplies Limited, specialists in raw plastic materials, and graphics printing company, The Graphics Factory Limited.

The three units amount to more than 10,000 sq. ft of industrial space in total.

Technical Colour Supplies have been FIREM tenants since 2013 and have extended their one year agreement to a 10 year lease on the back of continuing business growth.

The Graphics Factory has also signed a 10 year lease, spotting an opportunity to grow their business by locating in close-proximity to another FIREM tenant – and their close industry partner – The Cup Folk. The two firms already work very closely thanks to their complementary offerings.

Q Fitness co-owner Harry Barratt, said: “Q Fitness is delighted to be working alongside FIREM from our new unit on Coed Aben Road. Our dream of creating a modern, forward thinking fitness, health and wellbeing centre would not be possible without the help of Rebecca and her team at FI Real Estate Management.”

Harry's business partner Jack Bradford added: “Rebecca has supported us with her invaluable knowledge of the estate and has connected us with other businesses, who we are delighted to now be pitching our business to. These connections will allow Q Fitness to develop as a business and extend its offering.”

Formerly the business and investment lead for Wrexham Council, Rebecca Morgan has extensive experience in supporting local businesses and works closely with tenants in her role.

She said: “We work collaboratively with our tenants old and new so that we can cater for their current needs and work together to forecast, plan and support their future aspirations. Wherever possible, we also seek to connect potential corporate clients with one another, all of which helps to embed clients within the fabric of Wrexham Industrial Estate.

“Looking at a client’s business in a more holistic manner has contributed to our new year trio of 10 year deals. This approach enables us to provide the right environment for businesses to improve their sustainability and thrive in the long term.”

FIREM has plans to develop 200,000 sq. ft of new build in 2020 and to expand and develop more quality industrial accommodation.
