Jobs boost with completion of £5.5m Thirsk business park...

5th November, 2022.

The second 30,000 sq ft phase of a multi-million-pound business park that is expected to create more than 40 further jobs has been completed in Thirsk.

North Yorkshire-based developer Marrtree Investments has completed work on its flagship £5.5m Marrtree Business Park at Sowerby Gateway, close to the A1 (M) and A19.

The first phase of the ambitious project opened in February last year despite logistical challenges caused by the pandemic and ongoing lockdowns.

Phase I tenants include Screwfix, Toolstation, Motor Parts Direct, and Duftons Plumbing and Heating Supplies.

Now, the second, £2.5m, 30,000 sq ft phase of the development has been completed by Harrogate construction group HACS, with 10,000 sq ft of the new development already pre-let to tenant, wholesaler PJH Bathrooms.

Marrtree expects further tenants to sign up for the remaining eight units this autumn.........
