February 28th, 2024

Protective clothing maker Skanwear has committed to the unit at Priority Space’s Jubilee Park in a relocation from Kirk Sandall.

Agreed by Commercial Property Partners on behalf of the landlord, the 16,042 sq ft unit has been secured on a 10-year lease for the growing business, which operates globally.

Jubilee Park is a speculative development close to Doncaster Sheffield Airport with the M18 1.5m away.

Priority Space director, Lee Buchanan, said: “We’re delighted to work with our letting agents CPP and Knight Frank and agree terms with Skanwear, one of the leading electrical PPE providers in the UK.

“We’re also confident that we will be making further announcements in the very near future as interest regarding the other available units on Jubilee Park continues to come in.”

Skanwear chief executive Richard Long, said: “This is a high spec quality unit that will allow us to grow with confidence with the right facilities and space to expand. It will also provide an excellent base for our staff and its central location is ideal for both clients and supply partners to reach.”

The Skanwear unit offers warehousing provision along with reception area, open plan offices and staff facilities.

Outside, Skanwear will benefit from 23 car park spaces including electric charging points and a concrete service yard. The unit achieved an A EPC Rating.

CPP partner Ed Norris added: “We think this is a great deal for both parties and, as a speculative development, it shows the continued confidence in the commercial property sector across South Yorkshire with premium ‘A’ rated spaces still coming to market.”

Rebecca Schofield, partner at joint agent Knight Frank, said: “The latest phase at DSA is proving popular with more announcements to follow.”
