Giltbrook firm wakes up and smells more coffee
20th May 2014
A business which supplies independent coffee shops and restaurants across the region is brewing up growth after moving to new premises.
Coffee Central supplies both coffee and the machines that turn it into everything from a cappucino to an espresso.
Now it is planning to increase its product range and start roasting its own coffee after a move to new premises off the A610.
Gavin Dow of Coffee Central said: “The move to Giltbrook not only allows us to increase our product range and accommodate our growth for the foreseeable future, it more importantly allows us to house our own coffee roasting and packing facilities.
“This investment gives us better control over our finished product as well as allowing us to supply some of the freshest coffee in the East Midlands.
“Moving all our business activities under one roof means we can offer our customers a complete one-stop shop, from supplying bespoke professional espresso machines, carrying out repairs and servicing, through to developing a customer’s unique coffee blend.
“This gives us the unique advantage of being one of the only fully integrated machine and coffee suppliers in the area.”
Central Coffee has moved into the remaining 3,000 sq ft at Giltbrook Industrial Park in a deal brokered by joint agents NG Chartered Surveyors and Geo Hallam & Sons.
It has taken the space on the 20-unit, 72,500 sq ft scheme after outgrowing premises on Nottingham’s Castle Marina.
Jonathon Seddon, director at NG Chartered Surveyors, said: “Giltbrook Industrial Park, and neighbouring Giltbrook Retail Park, anchored by IKEA, has been a superb development for the owners, British Land.
“NG was instrumental in the design and planning of the industrial element which has achieved some of the best rental and capital values in the region, with both hardly having been affected by the downturn.
“We’re delighted to secure this deal for our clients British Land, and would like to wish Coffee Central all the best for the future.”
Ed Cree of British Land, said: “To have full occupancy at Giltbrook Industrial Park shows the quality build and ideal location it enjoys. Coffee Central is joining some other household names such as Screwfix, Pickfords and Blue Monkey Brewery. We’re really pleased that this deal has gone through so smoothly.”
James Hall at Geo Hallam & Sons, added: “The letting of the final unit to Coffee Central is a great result and testament to the quality of the Giltbrook scheme following the sale of Unit 2 to Aston and Fincher.”
