Kilroot Tenants Take Up Additional Space Within Popular Business Park

Leading component manufacturer Ryobi and Glenkrag, the largest supplier to the pets and aquatics trade in Northern Ireland, have extended their take up at the popular Kilroot Business Park.

Having been a tenant since 2003, Ryobi expanded into more space at the end of 2017 with the company’s total take up now totalling c. 78,000 sq ft. Glenkrag has also renewed its two-unit lease, totalling over 68,000sq. ft. of first-class industrial space in Kilroot Business Park, for another fifteen years.

Jointly marketed by commercial property agents Lisney along with McConnell Chartered Surveyors on behalf of London-based Canmoor, Kilroot Business Park is renowned for its world-class facilities and is also home to Amazon and FedEx.

Andrew Gawley, Director at Lisney, commented:

“Kilroot Business Park remains the largest unbroken, single ownership industrial estate in Northern Ireland and its high-profile clients have established it as a leading location for the distribution sector.

“Ryobi and Glenkrag continue to establish themselves as key-players in their respective industries, while the Kilroot site continues to be a catalyst for economic growth in the area.

“The improvements to local infrastructure, including the A2, have improved the ease of access into the park, and the superb location combined with low rental costs makes Kilroot Business Park a very attractive offering.”

The park is located close to both Belfast City Airport and Belfast International Airport, as well as being within 10 miles of both Belfast Harbour and Larne Harbour.

Rory McConnell, Director at McConnell Chartered Surveyors, added:

“We are delighted that both Ryobi and Glenkrag are continuing to see high levels of success in Kilroot Business Park.

“Demand in the industrial sector is expected to stay strong throughout 2018, further highlighting the need for high-class facilities such as Kilroot.

“The limited space in Belfast-based industrial parks has helped to attract a portfolio of international clients, as Kilroot Business Park boasts over 60 acres of space and two development sites.”
