New jobs to be created following Northumberland warehouse deal

A raft of new jobs are set to be created on a 10-acre site in Northumberland following a new commercial deal.

Property consultancy Naylors Gavin Black has secured a new five-year letting for the 100,000 sq ft premises, which are to be used as a factory and warehouse by new tenant Merit.

Located at Nelson Industrial Estate in Cramlington, the building was formerly occupied by plastic manufacturer Jaycare, but has been vacant for a number of years.

The building will provide an additional facility for building specialist Merit, which has its head office in Northumberland Business Park as well as bases in Glasgow and London, and is expected to create several new jobs for the area.

Keith Stewart, partner at Naylors Gavin Black, which acted as joint agent alongside Frew Pain & Partners, said: “After falling into disrepair and laying empty for such a long period, it will be fantastic to see this space help a successful local company grow further.

“The area is a great one for businesses and employers of all kinds, with a number of other commercial estates and many local amenities only a short distance away.”
