It was once famed as a giant television manufacturing site – but now Mandale Business Park has switched channels to offer premises to a wide and ever-increasing range of businesses.

The park’s owners are keen to attract more growing firms from across the region keen to take advantage of the state-of-the-art facilities – including a forthcoming distribution unit.

A £20m investment from one of the North-East’s leading commercial property developers, the Mandale Group, has transformed what was once the base for a 2,500-strong LG Philips workforce.

The diverse range of businesses who now call it home include signage specialists Orgatex, forklift truck experts Cathedral, van rental firm Herd Hire, charity Age UK, floral foam specialists Smithers-Oasis and SAS Autoparts.

But there’s plenty more room for ambitious businesses looking for the perfect premises.

Mandale Business Park features a combination of fully refurbished, state-of-the-art industrial units and modern office space.

And Mandale are now marketing a high-spec distribution unit of more than 55,000 sq ft including 3,000 sq ft of office space.

With dimensions ranging from 2,700 sq ft to much larger spaces, all units have been “future-proofed” by Mandale, with their property specialist Joe Darragh explaining: “We’ve designed all the units with energy efficiency in mind, ensuring we keep running and maintenance costs low.

“Each of the units have had new roofs and walls installed, while we’ve also created new car parks to ensure there’s plenty of space for staff and visitors outside every property.

“These are hi-tech facilities, as good as you’ll find anywhere – warm, insulated units with high-quality lighting.

“What we’ve done for firms who’ve already taken units is work closely with them to understand their requirements and ensure they get exactly what they want.”

Situated two miles east of the city of Durham, the park sits within a well-established commercial zone, boasting easy access to the A1 (M).

A basement unit is also available, suitable for up to 288 vehicles or a general storage facility for the retail industry.
