Bathroom & Plumbing Superstore is the latest company to take advantage of the Hanworth Trade Park. The first months trading has seen a significant increase in sales when compared to January 2013, with the company stating that the attributes of the development will more than justify their decision to relocate from Feltham.
The first phase of lettings at the Hanworth Trade Park saw premier builder's merchant, Selco, acquire a new 50,000 sq. ft. trade only builder's warehouse. The letting of the remaining units began with the implementation of Phase 2 in August of 2013. This has seen additions made to the tenant mix, with the latest leaseholder being Bathroom & Plumbing Superstore.
Ken Milberry, Managing Director of Bathroom & Plumbing Superstore, said of the new superstore – “We opened on the 4th January, and although we haven't advertised the new location, sales are up on the same time last year”. The new Bathroom & Plumbing Superstore is actually a relocation from Feltham, but as Ken explains, “It just wasn't working. We weren't getting the trade, so seeing sales increase for no real increase in costs, or promotional expenditure at Hanworth is a major bonus.”
The Hanworth Trade Park is an extensive site located on the A312 Hampton Road West. The site possesses excellent access to the road network as to the north the A312 leads towards Heathrow Airport, to the south and west the A316 (Great Chertsey Road) plus the M3 Motorway (Junction 1), together with the A30, A4 and M4 motorway (Junction 3).
Due to its location, and the other attributes, the Hanworth Trade Park is rapidly becoming a hub for building supplies, DIY and other trade companies, who are keen to utilize the unique features of the site, which includes Sunday opening.
“The location of the store, and the transport infrastructure supporting it, means that the Hanworth Trade Park is perfect for our needs.” Says Ken Milberry, who concludes – “These facts, combined with the tenant mix at the Park, will allow Bathroom & Plumbing Superstore to service the needs of the building industry in South West London.”
