Two prime units on offer on main link into county town
A thriving Taunton business, currently based on two sites, in Priory Bridge Road is on the move.
Craftex, which manufactures and supplies cleaning materials to the commercial sector nationwide, is moving to a single site at Ilchester in order to consolidate its operations.
As a result its two prime sites on Priory Bridge Road are now being marketed by Greenslade Taylor Hunt and Jones Lang Lasalle.
Duncan Brown, partner at Greenslade Taylor Hunt, said: “Both buildings are ideally suited to their existing trade counter use given their prominent frontage to Taunton’s main link road from the M5 into the town centre. Priory Bridge Road benefits from considerable vehicular and pedestrian passing trade and as such attracts occupiers looking to promote their businesses, with the added advantage of onsite parking.
“Both buildings are close to Firepool where the Vision for Taunton is seeing the regeneration of the area with a mix of shops, entertainment venues, offices, housing and possibly a hotel.
“66 Priory Bridge Road is available at a guide price of £350,000 and its 4,685 square feet lends itself to a variety of uses including trade counter, retail or veterinary practice, the latter subject to planning consent.
“The other unit at 25 Priory Bridge Road provides 2,960 square feet and is available at £325,000 providing versatile accommodation for configuration to suit requirements.”
Craftex, set up in 1981, originally as a carpet cleaning business has gone from strength to strength during its 30-plus years of trading and now employs 17 people.
The business was founded in Taunton by a civil servant looking for a change of direction and is now run by second and third generation family.
The firm also supplies cleaning machinery and related products to the cleaning industry and facilities management throughout the UK and Northern Ireland.
It has outgrown its current premises and has been unable to find a suitable new home in the county town.
The move to Ilchester will not affect the local trade counter which will continue to operate from Taunton.
