One of East Yorkshire’s largest industrial sites comes to market

Vacant site

An extensive industrial and manufacturing facility, that’s one of the largest vacant buildings in East Yorkshire and could support hundreds of jobs, has come onto the market.

Gent Visick has been appointed by commercial trailer manufacturer Montracon, which acquired the Market Weighton site in 1994. Montracon has previously employed more than 100 people there, before relocating and centralising production to its Doncaster HQ. About half of the Market Weighton facility is still operational.

The building totals roughly 100,000 sq. ft on a site of just under eight acres and is suitable for either a manufacturing or warehouse / distribution company. It’s in a strategic location just off the A1079, between York and Beverley, and is less than eight miles from junction 38 of the M62.

Paul Mack, Director at Gent Visick, said: “There are few buildings of this scale that are available across the entire East or North Yorkshire regions, and it could have a hugely positive impact in terms of employment for the local and regional area.

“The property also benefits from being built to a high specification including a large power and gas supply, multiple cranes, three acres of expansion land, an eaves height of up to 8.82 metres as well as 25 loading doors. The building could also be divided up and we are offering accommodation from about 7,500 sq. ft.”
