Carlsberg cracks open a "welcome upgrade" with move to Colton office park
A nationwide beer brand has announced that it is moving to new offices near Leeds as part of a “welcome upgrade”.
Carlsberg UK, which is headquartered in Northampton, has agreed a ten year lease on a self-contained office building at Temple Point Office Park in Colton.
The company will occupy Unit 9 Temple, a 13,134 sq ft self-contained office building that has been recently refurbished and will house 140 local staff.
Sanderson Weatherall acted on behalf of Carlsberg and JLL acted as agents for the landlord at Temple Point.
Carlsberg UK’s head of procurement, David Hawkins, commented: “Our relocation to Temple Point will provide us with a welcome upgrade from our current office space and the owner tailored the refurbishment to meet our requirements.
“The office occupies a prime business location and provides a fit-for-purpose, high-quality space with comfort cooling suitable for its predominant use as a contact centre.”
Richard Dunn, head of office agency at Sanderson Weatherall, said: “We’re delighted to have assisted Carlsberg UK with their office search.
“Throughout the process, our client saw the benefit of being located at such a major business park handily placed for J46 of the M1 and with excellent staff amenities nearby. 9 Temple Point was a rare self-contained option available in the market and perfect to facilitate their future plans.
“After an unavoidable downturn in the market during Q2 it’s great to see the completion of deals like this one.
“The outlook for the Leeds office market is promising with a number of deals and developments, including the landmark Majestic building, due to complete before the end of the year.”
Richard Thornton of Temple Points’ agent JLL, added: “Unit 9 represented a rare opportunity to acquire a self-contained building with such good car parking so close to the M1. The fact it let so quickly was no surprise given its credentials.”
