Over 3,000sq.ft of prime office space has been let at Escrick Business Park in York, as two local firms have recently occupied premises at the Park.

The Brecks Company Ltd has taken a one year lease on a 1,660sq.ft two storey office. The food manufacturer, which employs 100 people at a factory on Breighton Airfield in Selby, produces bar and breakfast cereal inclusions and supplies its products to large global businesses. It also produces meat-free solutions for household name retailers.

Kirsty Corcoran, from The Brecks Company, says: “Our business started 25 years ago with just 12 people supplying extruded cereals and textured proteins to manufacturers. Over time, Brecks has harnessed the synergy between extrusion and meat-free processing to become a European market leader, supplying UK retailers and the European, North American and Asian markets with high-quality vegetarian products. We also produce protein snacking products as well as recently buying the popular cereal brands, Honey Monster Puffs and Good Grain.

“All of this means that our business is rapidly expanding, and we were keen to find new office space to house our branded team, plus somewhere to give us a modern, comfortable space for customer and business meetings.”

The second business to locate to Escrick Business Park is Hydrotherm Ltd. The company has taken an initial six month lease on a 1,360sq.ft two storey office. Max Smith, who is a director at the firm, says: “Hydrotherm is a new venture launched earlier this year, manufacturing premium quality products for the leisure and camping industries. Our manufacturing operation is based near Thirsk and having recently received venture capital funding from Mercia Capital, which handles the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund (NPIF) on behalf of the government, we chose to locate our sales and research and development facilities at Escrick. The location suited us as it’s within easy travel distance of Leeds, York and Hull, which are all locations of the main Universities we collaborate with, allied to the quality of the site and premises, there was no comparison.”

Following the recent deals, there are only a small number of vacant offices now available at Escrick Business Park that range in size from 1,350sq.ft to 2,400sq.ft. There are 20 other businesses already located there.

Phil Hill, from S Harrison, says: “The business park’s rural setting has really appealed to firms looking for easy access to the national motorway network. The ultrafast fibre broadband is obviously another big plus point as we offer some of the fastest download speeds anywhere in York, which is a major selling point for the business park. All the remaining space is available on completely flexible terms meaning companies can either rent or buy to suit their individual circumstances.”

Escrick Business Park is located immediately off the A19 York to Selby Road just outside the village of Escrick and provides excellent access to the M1, M62, A1 and the national motorway network. Over 160 people now work at the Park.
