Widnes Regeneration Ltd, the joint venture between St. Modwen and Halton Borough Council, has announced the first wave of tenants at phase II of Heron Business Park.

The six new occupiers, which have taken up a total of over 12,000 sq ft, include electrical contractor AB Engineering Ltd, packaging specialists Locpac and industrial engineers J B Rewinds Ltd.

Phase two, which equates to a total of 19 units totalling 73,700 sq ft, has been built following the popularity of Phase one, which was fully occupied last March.

The two phases of the £5.9m Heron Business Park comprise some 125,000 sq ft of light-industrial space and form part of a long term regeneration programme established by Halton Borough Council.

Located at the heart of the Widnes Waterfront, phase II provides flexible accommodation suitable for office, light industrial and general manufacturing uses, with priority given to small and medium sized enterprises.

Richard Bakes, development manager at St. Modwen, said: “These latest sales are further evidence that Heron Business Park is the natural choice for businesses seeking high-quality industrial premises in the borough.

“Its core strengths of superb accommodation, a safe landscaped setting and a strategic location between the M62 and M56 have led to it being very popular with start-up companies and occupiers looking to upgrade to new space.”

The project is funded by St Modwen and the North West Development Agency and supported by Halton Borough Council.

Dixon Webb and GVA Grimley are joint agents acting for Widnes Regeneration Ltd.

AB (Electrical) Engineering Ltd (Unit 22 and Unit 25) 3,238 sq ft

Locpac (Unit 24) 1,620 sq ft
