FOUR deals have been completed at a new Nano Park development in Bradford, meaning just one unit now remaining.
Newhall Nano Park was built by Bradford-based commercial property developers Frank Marshall Estates to offer 18,000 sq ft of prime workshop and office space in small units.
It was created as part of the firm’s existing Newhall Business Park and the wider neighbouring Prologis Park development, at the key junction of the M606 and Rooley Lane in the city.
The new occupiers are LRL Roofing, Document Logic, Clariant and North Bikes. There is now only one 2,500 sq ft unit remaining.
Edward Marshall, a director of The Nano Park Company. said: “Our new Nano Park is the final phase of Newhall Business Park and is something new and exciting for us. We have built small hybrid units, with warehousing space below and offices above. We are delighted to welcome our four new occupiers, who have justified our faith in building these units speculatively.
“We believed that there was a real need for units of this size in Bradford – and we were right. We are in the age of the entrepreneur with more and more small and start-up companies looking for self-contained space of their own. We are now providing flexible, affordable and attractive business premises to help companies of this type to grow and prosper. They are being snapped up.”
The Hayley Group moved into units 1 and 2 earlier this year, and now only Unit 7 remains.

Global speciality chemical company Clariant, which has 18,000 employers and is based in Basel, is opening a laboratory at the Nano Park.
Keti Lako of Clariant, who have taken the 1,730 sq ft Unit 5, said its laboratory will be be dealing with chemicals that lower the pour points of oils.
“Samples from all over the world will arrive at our lab and our job is to find Clariant’s best product on the market and to test new research products and support field service application.”
Jackie Stableford of leading provider of printers and photocopiers Document Logic, who have taken the 1,730 sq ft Unit 4, said: “At the beginning of 2019 Document Logic acquired Document XL in Rochdale to expand our foothold in the Greater Manchester area.
“Nano Park was chosen because of its location and easy access to the motorway system. As we also service photocopiers and printers, we needed a workspace that was large enough to accommodate the increased volumes of machines after our latest acquisition.”
The Nano Park Company is planning to roll out the nano park concept across Yorkshire with specific sites earmarked in Leeds, Halifax, Wakefield and Skipton.
The model is based on flexible, affordable and attractive business space in locations where companies want to be.
