Mercedes-benz joins the business park
Greendale Business Park is pleased to announce that City West Commercials Ltd has become the Park’s newest occupant, moving in to Unit 46. Having outgrown its previous premises in nearby Sowton, City West Commercials can now enjoy a new, state-of-the-art servicing and parts distribution facility, along with the many benefits and amenities a site at Greendale Business Park affords. Boasting a new 1,027m2 (11,057ft2) warehouse building on a total site area of 0.7 Ha (1.75 acres), Unit 46 has been carefully tailored to meet the company’s requirements; for example, the yard area is designed specifically to accommodate articulated HGV vehicles, a key benefit for clients, and ample staff parking has also been provided.
City West Commercials is fully franchised as the South-West regional truck sales and truck and van aftersales partner for Mercedes-Benz. Operating from four sites located along the M5 and A38 ‘spine’ running through Somerset, Devon and Cornwall, City West Commercials forms a fundamental part of the national Mercedes-Benz network, supporting international, national and local customers. The company’s new site at Greendale Business Park is being supported by Mercedes-Benz as a template for facilities in the UK, recognising the changes that are taking place in fleet management and maintenance, due to technology and vehicle connectivity.
Greendale Business Park offers industrial and warehouse units and secure compounds with a full range of on-site services. Existing units at the Business Park range in size from 1,000ft2 (93m2) to 50,000ft2 (4,645m2). Flexible lease terms ensure the continued accommodation of businesses’ requirements as their needs change, building strong relationships over many years. Sites are also available for the development of B1 (light industrial/office), B2 (general industrial), B8 (storage and distribution) and suis generis waste and non-waste related uses (subject to grant of the necessary planning consents). New bespoke units can be built on a ‘turn-key’ design-and-build basis to suit individual occupiers’ requirements, from 10,000ft2(929m2).
Tenants of Greendale Business Park benefit from a wealth of on-site amenities and facilities, including super-fast broadband; sustainably-sourced electricity (currently produced by the Park’s AD plant); white and red diesel fuel and AdBlue pumps; 24-hour CCTV; out-of-hours security patrols; plant and machinery hire; and a fast and responsive on-site maintenance and building delivery team.
Greendale is delighted to welcome this newest member of the Business Park community, and wishes City West Commercials every success for the future. Tim Smith, Greendale Group Property Director, states:
“We have worked closely with City West Commercials to deliver a turn-key new facility which meets their immediate occupational needs, as well as allowing for future expansion. We welcome the new jobs which this has brought to Greendale Business Park and the wider East Devon area, and we consider it a great accolade to have a prestigious brand such as Mercedes-Benz associated with us.”
