“Thornhill has undergone a period of exciting, planned growth, and this important milestone for the business is the culmination of years of hard work from the whole team.
“We’re all looking forward to making the move over to Doncaster and continuing to go from strength to strength.”
Robert Richardson, Senior Development Manager at St. Modwen, said: “This is a fantastic letting for us, and we are pleased to have done it within six months of completing construction.
“The decision by Thornhill to take the units reaffirms our decision to speculatively develop, and we’re delighted with the success thus far.
“We can now look forward to our third phase of three buildings of 22,000 34,000 and 54,000 sq ft and to welcoming more high-calibre occupiers to Doncaster.”
Business Doncaster assisted with the move and St. Modwen was advised on the deal by CBRE which acted jointly with agents CPP on the instruction.
Sophie Angus, Senior Surveyor at CBRE, said: “As Doncaster continues to grow and evolve, it’s imperative that the town has viable, high-quality commercial space available for the ever-increasing number of businesses who are looking to call it home.
“The speed at which St. Modwen Park Doncaster has been let is testament to the fact that there’s a real appetite in the region for quality industrial space which can service ambitious, growing businesses.”
The Business Doncaster team has been instrumental in proving to Thornhill that Doncaster is the right place to relocate to.
Bill Mordue, Portfolio Holder for Business, Skills and Economic Development at Doncaster Council, said: “I am delighted to see the growth of this impressive development, which brings more quality business premises to the borough. The development will also create skilled jobs, which is something we always welcome. Big name companies such as Bosch, DB Schenker and National Grid have already shown confidence in this business park, and I am sure that more will follow”.
St. Modwen launched the first phase of the site in 2016, comprising circa 78,000 sq ft of accommodation which is let to leading German businesses – Bosch Automotive, which operates its flagship automotive technology training facility in one of the units, and DB Schenker’s northern hub for servicing the Hitachi trains on the East Coast main line.
