BRIGHOUSE-based Towngate PLC has agreed a five-year lease with Lassic Group on a 35,125 sq ft warehouse creating 30 new jobs in Bradford.

Lassic Group supplies household products and furniture to retailers across the UK and will use the refurbished Brighouse warehouse on the Armytage Road Industrial Estate as an additional storage and distribution depot – in addition to its 200,000 sq ft head office and warehouse in Bradford.

Suresh Handa, joint managing director of Lassic Group with Raj Handa, added: “We are very excited that we have secured this large, high bay property for another distribution centre for the Lassic Group. The move will create around 30 additional jobs at the Brighouse site, taking our overall headcount to 110 across the two locations.”

Tom Lamb, property manager for Towngate PLC, said: “It is a pleasure to welcome Lassic Group to one of our Armytage Road units, while also being a positive sign for the commercial property industry because the space was vacant for such a short period of time.”
