The property consultants were acting on behalf of JPB Holdings.

Roger Haworth, senior director of CBRE’s industrial agency in Sheffield, said; “This established industrial location has proven popular with occupiers due to the ease of access to the M1 via Junction 36 and its access to the major conurbations of South Yorkshire.

“The accommodation was a perfect solution for Rollem as it also offers a high specification warehouse including fully fitted office accommodation. Once again, South Yorkshire demonstrates its attractiveness as an industrial base.”

Rollem’s managing director, Stuart Murphy, said; “The new premises at Tankersley have doubled the floor area allowing the company to look to future growth and expansion and have already taken on two apprentices.

“Having the additional facility of the fibre optic digital region throughout the premises has enabled us, as we export over 85% of our business, to now host international video conferences with customers and potential customers and we have set up a demonstration area in the factory. Using webcam technology we can show customers the full capability of our machines without having to travel around the world.”
