A Nottingham based arts and crafts distributor has continue its growth plans with new premises in the west of the city.
Trimcraft, a family-run business which sources and supplies arts and crafts goods, will soon move to a new self-contained warehouse facility at Glaisdale Drive West. The 19,228 sq ft premises will be the main centre for Trimcraft’s manufacturing and distribution.
Gavin Webb, industrial and logistics surveyor at LSH, whose Nottingham office handled the letting on behalf of a private client, said: “We are seeing significant demand for property like Glaisdale Drive West at the moment; a high quality facility in a well-established commercial area of Nottingham. It’s well connected to the M1 and is the ideal home for an expanding business like Trimcraft. It’s great to see a successful local firm taking on the lease.”
Sunny Landa, director of commercial property agency NG Chartered Surveyors, acting on behalf of Trimcraft said: “We’re delighted that Trimcraft has secured a new home at Glaisdale Drive West. It was key that we found a property that closely met the company’s present requirements but also that could meet its needs for the foreseeable future as it continues to grow. I’m confident that Glaisdale Drive West is just that.”
Trimcraft was set up in Nottingham in the 1970s as a lace & haberdashery wholesaler, but diversified in the early 2000s, cornering the niche market for scrapbooking materials.
Today it is a manufacturer and developer of arts and crafts products in the UK and supplies retailers such as Wilkinson, Hobbycraft, The Range, Asda and WH Smith and distributes to 25 countries.
Vince Fakey, chairman of Trimcraft, said: “We are a company that has a long history in Nottingham so finding high quality distribution premises that could support us going forward in our home city was very important. We are on course to become the number one source for a wide range of British-designed arts and crafts products, and these new premises will play a big part in that journey.”
In 2014 Trimcraft moved its offices and showroom to a new site at Abbeyfield Court in Lenton, to the west of the city.
