Goold Estates helps Tile Rite to secure new headquarters
The UK’s leading retail tiling supplier has chosen to expand its business by launching a new headquarters in the West Midlands.
Tile Rite has signed a lease with landlord, Goold Estates, on a 50,000 sq ft warehouse, office and showroom at Beecham Business Park in Aldridge.
The family-run tiling wholesaler boasts a range of over 350 products and a growing customer portfolio of more than 1,500 retailers. It is relocating to the mixed-use estate from existing premises in Cannock.
Goold Estates agreed the new lease with Tile Rite having simultaneously negotiated a surrender on the lease of the previous tenant.
Beecham Business Park is a 6.5 acre site that has been extensively refurbished since being acquired by Goold Estates in 2017.
Every unit on the estate has been renewed, re-let or re-geared in the last five years, with significant improvements made to the security system and communal and landscaped areas.
Anthony Williams, property director at Goold Estates, said: “We are delighted to welcome Tile Rite as tenants to Beecham Business Park. We have worked closely with them over the last six months to try and meet their business requirements and timescales for relocation, while also working with our previous tenant to achieve their own relocation plans.
“The investment we have made in the business park has resulted in considerable demand from local occupiers and there is just 279 sq ft of accommodation available to let.”
Laura Harbidge, managing director at Tile Rite, said: “We would like to thank Anthony and everyone at Goold Estates for all of their help in preparing our new head office and warehouse facility over the last six months.
“As one of the leaders in the supply of tiling tools and accessories, we are embarking on an extensive programme to increase our product range. By tripling our warehouse space and adding a new showroom, we are also providing a much-improved level of service and supply. Not only is this a very exciting time for Tile Rite but it also shows our commitment to our customers during a challenging economic climate.”
