KitchenEx – “Meadowhall Business Park has surpassed our expectations”
KitchenEx, the UK’s sole supplier of high-specification kitchen appliances by Faber and ILVE to retailers, moved to Meadowhall Business Park last July.
The company, which relocated from Sheffield’s Ecclesall Road into a bespoke 3,750 sq ft unit, created its first ever showroom within the unit as part of its rapid expansion plans.
The new space has allowed trade buyers to view an extensive range of Faber and ILVE appliances and attend demonstrations and training throughout the year, and also offer improved office accommodation for the growing number of employees.
Vicky Harris, director at KitchenEx, said: “Initially we chose Meadowhall Business Park due to the right location and a realistic price against other commercial properties that were on offer elsewhere in Sheffield. When we first saw the offices, it was only just being developed so we needed to use our imagination!
“Our move last July has also allowed us to see the full development take shape and other successful and high profile companies move in.
“The move here has hugely surpassed our expectations. The high quality finishes of the interiors, exteriors and even the car park are way beyond our initial thoughts.
“We now have an office and showroom which we are proud to share with customers. We can ensure that our increasing customer base is fully supported from our new HQ in terms of information and first class customer care.
“And ARBA Group is great to do business with. They will sort any issues promptly and are approachable and professional.
“Moving from a city centre location to an out of town business park has improved our business on many different levels. It is a great place to run a business from. Easy parking, easy access from M1- which is key for companies with national coverage and great public transport too.
“We have a wealth of facilities on the doorstep, which are growing all the time, and a short journey to the city centre if we need to go there.
“I would recommend a move here. Our staff are really happy here.”
Meadowhall Business Park was bought in 2016 by ARBA Group and has seen 70 per cent occupier take up in 2017 through a multi million GBP refurbishment of the five former council buildings.
KitchenEx is amongst a host of high profile tenants at Meadowhall Business Park including Preventx, Tuffnells Parcels Express, NG Bailey, Wilford Smith Solicitors, Auburn Ainsley, Galaxy Insulation and Dry Lining (Holdings) Ltd, Chique Photography and Eaton Commercial Property Consultants Ltd.
Meadowhall Business Park is being marketed by the Sheffield Office of Knight Frank and Campbell & Co as joint agents.
