A KNUTSFORD plastic manufacturer is on the move after its previous site was sold in a £6.3m deal.

Albis, which was based on Parkgate Industrial Estate, is moving to Booths Park off Chelford Road.

The 113,820 sq ft warehouse and office complex was sold to Avjon 3 Limited through William Sillitoe, based in Wilmslow.

“Avjon acquired this site with the intention of breaking it up and refurbishing some of the units,” said Mark Sillitoe of Williams Sillitoe.

"As specialists in the industrial sector, their plans for this important site will positively benefit the area.

"Avjon is already in serious talks with potential occupiers and hopes to announce new tenants in the coming weeks.

“This is a significant disposal not only for us as a company but for the industrial sector, which continues to benefit from a surge in interest and investment across the country.

“We had a great deal of interest from a number of parties – both occupiers and investors – culminating in a best bids process and a great result for our client.”
