News: Elecomm expanding across Rotherham


Elecomm Ltd, the communications, electrical and mechanical contractor, has taken a five year lease on a 7,250 sq ft unit at JF Finnegan's Beighton Link Business Park in Rotherham.

The company, which provides electrical services to the commercial, retail and industrial sectors, is relocating its expanding head office and warehousing operation from Nine Trees Trading Estate in Thurcroft due to increased business.

The deal, which means that phase one of the flagship scheme is now full, was secured for JF Finnegan by the Sheffield office of property firm CBRE, while Elecomm Ltd represented itself overseen by general manager Steve Thomas.

The site is already home to the 112,500sq ft state-of-the-art Sandvik European Centre of Excellence, since taken over by American firm Orchid, plus Norwegian Steel firm, Sverdrup Steel.

Phase one comprises 55,000 sq ft of high quality industrial and business space over three buildings and is located on a 15 acre site off Junction 31 of the M1. Elecomm joins phase one tenants including Cadac BBQ manufacturer, Ideal Envelopes, Viaturn and SP Smith Painting Contractors.

Nick Gillott, director of JF Finnegan, said: "Beighton Link's ability to attract global operators such as Orchid and Sverdrup Steel as well as catering for leading regionally-based businesses such as Elecomm Ltd demonstrates its universal appeal as a place for firms to work and grow. We have a fantastic mix of tenants and have seen the park go from strength to strength.

"Looking ahead, we have plans to incorporate further units of a similar nature on the remaining three acres and are considering potential leisure and retail uses."

Chris Thomas, who co-founded the business in 2003 and is the managing director of the Communication Division of Elecomm Ltd, said: "Due to increased business we were looking for a new unit to accommodate our ever expanding team and after extensive searches in the South Yorkshire area we eventually found a suitable unit which matched our quite specific requirements."

Paul Mansell, co-founder and managing director of the M&E Division of Elecomm Ltd, also commented: "Beighton Link is a prestige business park and the location and quality of the unit was ideal. We are excited about expanding our operations whilst remaining firmly based in South Yorkshire."

CBRE is joint agent with Crossland Otter Hunt on Beighton Link. Senior Director of Industrial Agency at CBRE, Roger Haworth, brokered the deal. he said: "Once again, JF Finnegan's reputation for quality developments in strategic locations has proven pivotal in attracting an occupier. Beighton Link's strength lies in its superb location, close to all the major motorway networks, and the sheer quality of build. Elecomm Ltd will join a strong tenant line-up when they move in this month."

Work is also underway at the site for a new development for Cloverleaf, the operator of informal pub style amenity restaurants. "Brookhouse Farm" is set to open in the summer creating 25 full time and 50 part time jobs.
