A BRADFORD manufacturer has expanded its business into a new 64,000 square foot building.

Mansfield Pollard - a specialist provider of industrial air handling units, data centre cooling, kitchen ventilation and acoustic solutions - has moved into a large unit which is part of the Rook Lane industrial estate.

The estate itself is a huge 250,000 square foot area at Dudley Hill, close to the M62 and M606.

It was recently acquired and refurbished by Blackburn-based developer EP Group, with the 64,000 square foot unit let to Mansfield Pollard by Eddisons in Bradford.

Eddisons commercial surveyor, Matt Jennings, said: “Since EP acquired the Rook Lane site it has generated a huge amount of interest and to have a high-tech manufacturer such as Mansfield Pollard on site is testament to the quality of the units."

Work conducted by EP at the estate has included, increasing the yard area and improving the quality of the units.

Bryan Bentley, Mansfield Pollard operations director and co‐owner, said: “Mansfield Pollard continues to outperform all expectations and as part of our ambitious five‐year strategic growth programme the business required an additional site that would complement our operations and allow us to seamlessly continue the manufacture of our world-class products.

“The premises at Rook Lane certainly ticks all the boxes in terms of quality and flexibility, and we look forward to working closely with EP throughout the transformation and development of this amazing space.”

Eddisons is in discussions with a number of interested parties for the remaining space on the estate.

Further lettings are expected to be announced soon.
