BUSINESS is booming at a Deeside trading estate which has just secured deals with two major players.
Parcel firm Fedex (UK) Ltd and North Wales Aero Forms Ltd have moved into new premises at Engineer Park in Sandycroft after signing letting contracts with landlord WR Estates.
And Paul Wrigglesworth, head of property at WR Estates, said he hopes the park, on Factory Road, will continue to buck the economic gloom and help lead Flintshire out of the recession.
International parcel delivery firm Fedex has expanded its existing depot to more than 20,000 sq ft, which will serve as its main base for North Wales and the north west of England.
North Wales Aero Forms has signed up for three years for a 9,000 sq ft premises to serve a recently signed contract with aerospace giant Airbus.
Richard Doyle, managing director of North Wales Aero Forms, said: “As a supplier to the aerospace sector, logistically Engineer Park is ideally situated one mile from Airbus and Hawker Beechcraft and with excellent motorway connections.
“The estate is also very green and pleasant, which helps to make for a good working environment.”
Mr Wrigglesworth added: “These lettings mean that we are now more than 90% full, which is testament to the close working relationships we have with our tenants.
“The estate has experienced a transition over the last 18 months. However, we have used this time to refurbish a number of units and improve the estate’s appearance, to ensure it is an attractive place to work and visit.
“Due to the range of unit sizes available at Engineer Park we are well positioned to allow our tenants to expand to suit their business needs, as demonstrated with the Fedex deal.”
