NG helps deliver expansion plans for growing Loughborough company

14th December 2020


An ambitious local company is expanding in Loughborough after a property deal secured by commercial property specialists NG Chartered Surveyors.

Acting on behalf of private landlords, NG has let Unit 6 on Weldon Road in Loughborough to logistics and delivery company Orbital Direct to bring forward its expansion in the town.

Orbital Direct offers a range of services from same day couriers, freight forwarding, warehousing and fulfilment services.

The 7,500 sq ft unit came to the market at the start of the Covid-19 lock down and generated a lot of interest. Orbital Direct have agreed new lease terms and will be in the unit and trading well before Christmas. The deal doubles their operational floor space and will prove to be the ideal platform for the company’s expansion plans in 2021

Richard Sutton, Managing Director at NG Chartered Surveyors advised the estate owners who are based in Manchester, and is delighted with the outcome.

He said:

“Our latest letting shows the resilience of both the location but also of industrial property in these challenging times. Demand is higher than ever for quality space.

“Orbital have been looking for the right opportunity for some time now and this is the perfect fit, we wish Alex Elliot and his team a very successful 2021.

“We have 11,500 sq ft becoming available at Weldon road at the end of the year and we are sure this will also generate high levels of interest.”

Alex Elliot, director at Orbital Direct said:

“Due increasing demand the addition of a second site in Loughborough was needed to increase capacity for warehousing, logistics and freight forwarding service offering. This space will enable us to continue to service our existing customer base as well as new contracts coming in the new year. Thanks to Richard and the team at NG for helping us to secure the property so quickly.”
