Protective workwear manufacturer relocates Hull HQ

The Derwent Group has secured two new lettings at Willerby Hill Business Park in Hull.
Ansell UK Ltd, one of the world’s first manufacturers of limited life protective workwear, has relocated its head office to Willerby Hill from Hull’s Priory Park, taking 8,760 sq ft across the first and second floors of Building C, in a ten-year deal.

Meanwhile SpaMedica, the UK’s largest provider of cataract surgery, has leased all 13,674 sq ft of three-storey Building B, which is located at the centre of the site, on a ten-year lease. The letting marks SpaMedica’s first hospital within the Humberside region.

Jonathan Black, Property Director for The Derwent Group said: “Opening a state-of-the-art hospital at Willerby Hill Business Park will give SpaMedica the space, facilities and accessibility that their patients need. We’re also delighted to see Ansell choose Willerby Hill for its relocation and we welcome them both to our tenant portfolio.”

Willerby Hill Business Park is also home to BT Wholesale and Advanced Solutions.

Nick Coultish from Scotts Property acted on behalf of The Derwent Group and Ewan Mackay from Ewan Mackay Property Consultants acted for SpaMedica. Ansell UK Ltd acted for itself.

Nick Coultish said: “Willerby Hill presents the perfect location for SpaMedica to establish itself in the region and for Ansell’s relocation, thanks to the park’s high quality office space, plentiful car parking and excellent road connectivity.

“We are pleased to have secured both lettings, bringing new jobs and economic growth to the area. Both deals show confidence and demand in the local marketplace for good quality office accommodation.”

Willerby Hill Business Park is located to the west of the City of Hull and is accessed from the A63 via The Beverley Humber Bridge Link Road, the A164.
