AWARD-winning Bradford property company Frank Marshall Estates has opened another business park, this time close to Junction 25 of the M62.

The firm, which is behind the successful Newhall Business Park, close to the M606 in Bradford, developed the £3 million Bridge Business Park in Huddersfield speculatively, having bought the land in 2015.

The 2.73 acre site is situated next to the headquarters of Mamas & Papas in Colne Bridge Road, just off the main A62 Leeds Road and close to Junction 25 of the M62.

Frank Marshall Estates is run by Edward and Jimmy Marshall and is a well-established real estate company.

Edward Marshall said: “The M62 corridor is now one of the hotspots for industrial property in West Yorkshire, providing swift access to both the East Coast and the West Coast ports, as well as linking into the UK’s superb motorway network. It’s logistics gold dust.

“The success of Muse’s Logic Leeds by Junction 45 of the M1, just five minutes from the M62, and our very own Newhall Business Park in Bradford, again just five minutes away from the M62, is proof that the M62 corridor in West Yorkshire is now one of the prime industrial property and logistics locations in the whole of Yorkshire.”

Already Sniffers Pet Care, a specialist Yorkshire pet food wholesaler and distributor, has taken 6,250 sq ft of light industrial space at Bridge Business Park. Sniffers, who are moving and expanding have taken Units 5 and 6 at the brand-new park. The company has signed a five-year lease.

Edward Marshall added: “We look forward to welcoming other flourishing companies in the wake of Sniffers’ move. There is a good deal of interest in the remaining four units and we advise any prospective occupiers to come and take a look for themselves as soon as they can.

“This business park is an extremely significant project for us. We have created a high-quality employment park, which will create up to 100 jobs.”

Jimmy Marshall added: “Although Frank Marshall Estates has extensive interests in West Yorkshire, this is our first major development in Huddersfield, one of the county’s foremost towns with a splendid industrial history.

“We are proud to be contributing to the area’s economy, by building bespoke business/industrial units and creating jobs. We are committed to the town.”

The Bridge Business Park is situated to the west of, and with frontage to, Colne Bridge Road, just off the main A62 Leeds Road in an established industrial and warehousing location.

Nearby occupiers including Mamas & Papas, VTL and CJ Antich. It is just 1.5 miles south of Junction 25 of the M62.

As well as the established Newhall Business Park, the firm has also recently opened its neighbouring Nano Park, which has 18,000 sq ft of workshop and office space in small units.
