Humber Enterprise Park (HEP) has announced a deal to let a 2,000 sq ft office suite to Quality Freight Services Ltd. The new deal follows significant investment by Westcore Europe, which acquired the Park in 2020 with a view to relaunching the significant site and its mixed-use proposition.
Working with asset management partner, Citivale, Westcore has extensively refurbished five major office buildings at Humber Enterprise Park that is best known for its heritage as the BAE Systems base. Bluebird, Firebrand, Hawk, Buccaneer and Mercury are all significant, buildings offering highly modern, Grade A office suites of a combined 40,000 sq ft.
Quality Freight Services Ltd has secured a ten year lease for a 2,000 sq ft office suite on the ground floor of Firebrand. Westcore has divided the 5,000 sq ft floorplate to quickly accommodate QFS which is relocating from premises in North Ferriby.
Quality Freight Services Ltd is an international freight forwarding business established more than 27 years ago. It has 17 offices across the UK and employs a team of 158 people delivering freight solutions for wide ranging sectors including steel, modular building, and chemicals.
Following expansion, the company has outgrown existing premises and the benefit of prime, ready made space with secure parking was a key driver in moving to Humber Enterprise Park.
Sam Heppell, Branch Manager at Quality Freight Services Ltd, said, “Since opening our satellite office in Hull just over two years ago, we have experienced major growth, not least in serving the Humber Ports. Humber Enterprise Park was the perfect choice for our next move, offering unique and stunning offices in a location that is ideal for serving our client base and for staff commuting with the train station just a few minutes’ walk away. It also allows us capacity for growth on very flexible terms.”
Victorian Morgan, Director of Asset Management at Westcore Europe, said, “We are delighted to welcome Quality Freight Services Ltd to our business community at Humber Enterprise Park. We have invested over half a million pounds in recent years to refurbish three main office buildings with enhancements to the public realm as part of our ongoing plans to transform the Park into a destination. Further plans are progressing as we consult with our marketing and placemaking expert team.”
Office suites are available to let from 2,000 sq ft up to a full floor of 6,000 sq ft or an entire building of 18,000 sq ft. All buildings have undergone extensive refurbishment to offer Grade A accommodation with high specification amenities, double height feature atrium and a generous eight car parking spaces per 1,000 sq ft.
Humber Enterprise Park is located on a 79-acre site to the West of Hull City Centre. The development is within a few minutes’ walk of Brough railway station with daily services to the North of England and Kings Cross,10 minutes’ walk of the vibrant Brough town centre and two miles drive to the M62 and motorway network. BAE System still occupies a significant area at the Park with other tenants including Eco Engineering, Wren Kitchens, and Supercraft Ltd.
