More J28 success for CPP as Pride Mobility secures prime warehouse unit

Commercial Property Partners (CPP) has successfully let a 64,002 sq. ft modern warehouse facility at The Nursery in South Normanton to Pride Mobility UK Limited.


The US company, the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of mobility products, recently acquired the Nottinghamshire-based rise/reclining chair manufacturer Sitting Pretty with a view to relocating its whole operation to accommodate future expansion plans.


Unit 2, which forms part of The Nursery industrial scheme offered Pride Mobility three times the space of the previous manufacturing site, with circa 85 staff relocating to the new base, which also enjoys easy access to Jct 28 of the M1, only one mile away.


Built in 2006, Unit 2 is a detached steel portal frame unit with 10m clear working height, four dock level loading doors, two level access loading doors, a two storey open plan office with canteen and welfare facilities. Externally, the unit boasts a 40m concrete, fenced and gated yard and circa 80 parking spaces.

Wincobank Way forms part of the South Normanton industrial estate, an established commercial location which has attracted numerous key occupiers including Eurocell, Alloga UK, Radius Systems and GXO Logistics. Excellent road connectivity and access to a local skilled labour market also help to underpin the location as a sought-after manufacturing and logistical base.


Sean Bremner, Director at CPP, commented: “Staff retention was a key requirement for the tenant and so finding a solution within relative close proximity to their existing premises was important. The company is very brand conscious and Unit 2 offers represents a high quality building to fit the profile of Pride Mobility UK Limited.”


“There was a lot of interest in the facility and we’re delighted to have secured Pride Mobility UK Limited whose expansion ambitions can only be good for the area.”


Stephen Wright, Operation Director at Pride Mobility UK said:

“Thanks to Sean Bremner, CPP & the owners of the Building. We have been able to move into this building much quicker than we expected, which in turn has given us the space we desperately needed due to the business growing rapidly since acquiring Sitting Pretty back in July 2021.”

“The new building gives us the space we need to move the whole operation under one roof, including dispatching goods from South Normanton instead of our Pride Mobility subsidiary in Oxfordshire and more importantly being able to keep all of our existing staff and their wealth of experience rather than having to relocate the business to a different area.”

“From January 2023, Sitting Pretty by Pride Mobility Ltd will be running its newly polished, full scale operation out of South Normanton for the foreseeable future.”
