Future looks bright for Bell Lighting as it relocates and expands into new Normanton logistics space

Bell Lighting, a manufacturer and supplier of lighting to the wholesale sector, is relocating to newly refurbished logistics premises at Centre 31 in Normanton as part of its expansion plans.

CBRE Leeds and CPP have completed the letting of a 68,992 sq ft prime industrial/ warehouse at Foxbridge Way, acting on behalf of Kennedy Wilson. Bell Lighting were advised by Avison Young.

The move will see the family-run company double its logistics and office space, relocating from its existing premises at Unit A on Normanton Industrial Estate, and will create a number of new skilled jobs for the local area. Established in 1920, Bell Lighting is part of the Bell Group of Companies and has seen growing demand for new technology lighting, prompting the need for bigger premises.

Centre 31 is a modern, detached industrial unit comprising 48,823 sq ft of warehouse space with two floors of office accommodation totalling more than 20,000 sq ft on the well-established Normanton Industrial Estate.

Danielle Raunjak, associate director at CBRE Leeds, said: “We are delighted to agree a deal at Centre 31 to Bell Lighting to facilitate the company’s relocation into larger premises to support its growth strategy. Centre 31 is strategically located with excellent links to the nearby motorway network. This latest letting confirms the increasing demand for good quality industrial units within the region.”

Avison Young acted for Bell Lighting alongside Blacks Solicitors.

Rob Oliver, principal at Avison Young, said: “We were delighted to have worked with Bell Lighting on this search and acquisition project. Given the current supply demand dynamics, it can be challenging to acquire additional premises. We had to be creative, securing additional short-term premises, in addition to acquiring Unit C at Centre 31. We were aware this unit was likely to be vacated by WLT and felt it could provide a good option, given its size, specification and great location, so were very pleased to have been able to engage in discussions early and agree a deal.”

Jonathan Kay, senior associate solicitor, led the Commercial Property team at Blacks Solicitors and said: “We’ve really enjoyed working closely with Trevor and Ralph at Bell Lighting and Rob Oliver at Avison Young to secure the lease of new premises at Unit C, Foxbridge Way. I’m looking forward to seeing how the extra space will support Bell Lighting’s growth plans and the new jobs that will be created for people in the local area.”
