£3m spec-built industrial unit completed at Clyde Gateway East
Built by Kier Construction Scotland and being marketed by Ryden LLP, the £3 million industrial unit is the latest speculative new build undertaken and completed by Clyde Gateway.
Clyde Gateway East Business Park at Junction 2A on the M74 is already home to high calibre occupiers that include BT, Glacier Energy, Dentec and Cusack. The new unit provides 25,500 sq. ft. of highly-specified, column-free workshop space plus a further 2,000 sq. ft. of office and ancillary accommodation together with service yard and dedicated parking, all within landscaped grounds.
Ian Manson, chief executive of Clyde Gateway, said: “The past few months have shown a positive trend in the west of Scotland’s industrial property market, with good evidence of demand with high-quality space still in short supply. This new speculative unit has been built to attract companies from the key growth sectors identified in partnership with Scottish Enterprise, and I’m pleased to say we’ve had some very positive enquiries.
“Clyde Gateway’s reputation as a great business destination is growing all the time as more and more companies locate here to take advantage of our excellent transport links, skilled labour force, fantastic business support and superfast broadband provision. The recent completion of improvements to the motorway network east of Glasgow boosts the attraction of Clyde Gateway as a business destination even further.
“Clyde Gateway East also has excellent service and utility provisions and is the only manufacturing location in Glasgow to benefit from a Smart electrical grid, which is greener, more efficient, secure and reliable.”
Billy Linton, managing director of prestige vehicle repair & restoration company Dentec, who moved to Clyde Gateway East in 2016, said: “When our business recently expanded, we outgrew our previous home in Rutherglen, so decided to move to Clyde Gateway East. Since we moved here the profile and image of our business has grown massively, we’ve brought in more work and the response from our customers to our new premises has been excellent. We think we’re in a great location to take advantage of future opportunities and hopefully grow the business even further.”
