Empire Interior Contractors Limited has completed on the purchase of 7A & 7B, Portland Drive in Shirebrook as its new manufacturing and head office facility.
Empire Contractors specialises in the manufacturing and installation of bespoke joinery and associated products, operating nationally and internationally across all sectors.
Units 7A & 7B, Portland Drive consist of a 10,150 ft² unit set on a large secure self contained yard with an eaves height of 4.7 metres ideal for B1, B2 and B8 uses.
Anthony Barrowcliffe of FHP Property Consultants said: “I was very pleased to have been instructed to sell this unit on behalf of a longstanding client of FHP. After a good marketing campaign, we engaged with Empire Interior Contractors who were a growing local company wanting to expand and purchase their own premises. FHP worked closely with the vendor and the purchaser throughout lockdown and through combined efforts and cooperation we managed to complete on this 10,150ft² unit.”
Dean Strouther and Luke Pella of Empire Interior Contractors Limited said: “Purchasing the property on Portland Drive was our first venture into commercial ownership and was a major stepping stone for our business, a process that was equally rewarding and nerve racking.
“With limited knowledge of this process our minds were quickly put at ease with Anthony taking lead of the sale to ensure everything was processed in a timely, yet accurate manner. Although the sale was during the Covid-19 lockdown, the focus remained, and we were over the moon to complete mid-September and get the transitional process underway.”
Kirsty Courtney-May of Hopkins Solicitors represented the vendor and Matthew Maiden of Banner Jones Solicitors represented the purchaser.
