The Bradford office of Chartered Surveyors Eddisons has completed the letting of a trade counter unit in Bradford, to a national tool hire firm.
Brandon Tools, who provide tools and equipment for the building and construction industry through a network of over 170 branches nationwide, is the latest tenant to sign up at the Bowling Back Lane Industrial Estate.
The firm has taken over 7,100 sq ft on a 15 year term within the estate on Wakefield Road, which is recognised as a prime trade counter position. The asking rent was £45,000 per annum.
Other nearby occupiers include City Electrical Factors, Tool Station, Plumb Center and Yesss Electrical.
Eddisons acted on behalf of established and retained client Marrtree Investments.
Alex Wilkinson of Eddisons said: ‘This is a top of the range unit in one of the most sought after trade counter locations in West Yorkshire.
‘It enjoys a huge amount of passing traffic and is well connected to major road networks, which is what attracted Brandon Tools and other national blue chip tenants.’
