Cleland McIver expands footprint at Kingsway Business Park

Date published: 12 December 2020

Textile manufacturer Cleland McIver has expanded its facilities at Kingsway Business Park after acquiring a new industrial unit.

A 10 year lease for the newly-built 75,131 sq ft facility has been agreed. This deal takes Cleland McIver’s total occupancy at the park to 115,000 sq ft following its purchase of the adjacent unit in 2017. Thales and Nobilia Kitchens are also located on the same plot of the business park.

Kingsway Business Park is one of the premier business parks in the North West and has delivered over 2m sq ft of warehouse space. Existing occupiers at the park include Asda, Wincanton, JD Sports, Dachser and the future development of additional amenities are planned for the park.

Councillor John Blundell, Rochdale Council cabinet member for Regeneration, Business, Skills and Employment, and RDA board member, added: “Cleland McIver Lifestyle is a great company with ambitions to be even more successful. It speaks volumes about Rochdale borough in general, and Kingsway Business Park in particular, that this exciting business realised it could find everything it needed for future success right on its doorstep.

“Its decision brought another ambitious and growing business to Kingsway, one of the North of England’s best-performing business parks.”

The letting was completed by JLL, P3 and Collier on behalf of Ropemaker Properties; Cleland McIver Lifestyle was unrepresented.

Richard Johnson, director of industrial and logistics at JLL, said: “Cleland McIver’s expansion within the park is testament to Kingsway Business Park’s credentials as a premier industrial location and its inherent flexibility to be able to accommodate and facilitate the growth of its occupiers.”
