Leeds-headquartered commercial developer, Eshton, has pre-let a 6,000 sq ft unit at its Castleford site in West Yorkshire to leading manufacturer, distributor and recycler of UPVC window, door, conservatory and roofline systems, Eurocell, on a 15-year lease.

The unit will become home to Eurocell’s 219th branch in the UK, with the company having already opened 10 new branches this year.

Work began on site at Castleford in March on this unit and an additional 4,000 sq ft building, which Formula One Auto Centres will occupy, one of the UK’s largest independent motorist fast-fit vehicle repair and service providers.

Tenants are offered strong transport links and a popular location for trade occupiers, sitting close to Junction 32 of the M62 with good access to the town centre.

David Singleton, director at Eshton, said: “Eurocell is recognised as the UK’s largest manufacturer and distributer of building plastics, which is reflected in its continual growth and ability to spot new market opportunities. By taking this unit at our Castleford site for 15 years without a break clause, Eurocell is demonstrating a long-standing commitment to supporting the West Yorkshire region with new job vacancies and a wealth of services that will contribute to the local economy after such a turbulent time.

“We initially selected the Castleford site for all the potential it offered to ambitious businesses wanting to work out of the area and the calibre of our two tenants has proven our foresight to be accurate. We wish both Eurocell and Formula One Auto Centres a truly successful future, and hope they capitalise on all the great things Castleford has to offer.”

Andy McDonnell, managing director of Eurocell Building Plastics, said: “We’re pleased to announce yet another addition to the trade branch network in Castleford.

“By adding this new branch to the network, we’re able to continue the brand’s growth in West Yorkshire, whilst providing more convenience for our customers and more job opportunities for local residents.

“The new branch has come at a pivotal time for the team, as we continue to see the demand for our high-quality product range grow. And after a difficult 12 months, it’s fantastic to see Eurocell continue to grow from strength to strength.”
