THE strategically-located Creagh industrial park in Co Antrim is expanding, with new units being brought to the rental market and a further warehouse receiving planning permission.

The new units will add more than 62,000 sq ft of space to the Toome site, which is seen as representing an excellent opportunity for business growth and development to new tenants.

Proposals for a 51,667 sq ft unit for industrial, distribution or warehouse use on the site have been given the green light as construction on another new build comprising 9,688 sq ft of space nears completion, ready for occupation next month.

The units are being let by joint agents CBRE Northern Ireland and Cushman & Wakefield.

Lisa McAteer, senior director at CBRE, said: “Considering the current market, this is a rare opportunity to lease a new warehouse space.

“The build on the first smaller unit is well under way with construction to complete shortly ready for new tenants. With planning permission secured for the larger unit, building work can also commence on it immediately.

“Industrial parks attract both local and international investment, bringing with them a wealth of potential for business expansion.”

New tenants moving to Creagh industrial park will occupy units alongside established international companies in the immediate area including SDC Trailers, MAW Engineering, UForm, MMS International and DPD.

The expansion at Creagh industrial park is on a portion of the estate being developed by Jamdac Developments, whose director Mark Cuskeran said: “We've been developing 13 acres here since 2017, with 115,000 sq ft of industrial space already rented out.

“These latest additions will significantly boost our offering as we grow to maintain pace with demand for industrial space in this part of Northern Ireland.”
