Malton business park welcomes raft of new occupiers

Malton Enterprise Park has welcomed a raft of new occupiers during the past five months.

The occupiers, from a wide range of business sectors, have taken a combined total of 27,500 sq ft at Malton’s premier employment park.

They include Snug Campers, Neu-Era and J S Graphixx, while two well-established Malton businesses, Direct Imaging and Parnabys, are moving in shortly.

Sean Harrison of Harrison Developments LLP, the owners and developers of Malton Enterprise Park, said: “These new deals are a vindication of the substantial investment we have made in our park.

“More than 120 new and sustainable jobs have been created on site, which makes us very proud. The wide variety of successful businesses here is also an indication of the strength of the economy in Ryedale.”

Other high-profile occupiers already on site include Toolstation, Screwfix, Aquapoint and JMP Packaging.

Adrian Tolhurst of Direct Imaging said: “When I first saw Malton Enterprise Park and how it has developed so quickly, I thought it would be great if one day we could move our HQ there.

“Our current premises in Malton have done us proud for eight years, so if we were to move, we had to have the perfect unit in the perfect location. This is it. Having met up with Sean Harrison, I could also see how passionate he was about the site, which also gave me real confidence.

“The move to MEP will allow us better marketing opportunities as our property is situated on the site entrance and has road side visibility with good signage opportunities. The site is also situated amongst some of our local clients and provides great access to main roads for our distribution department.”

Direct Imaging was founded 11 years ago and offers a variety of services and products ranging from Print Consumables, Stationery, Furniture, IT and Managed Print copiers. Its new premises will include retail as well as offices, storage and recycling centre.”
