A multi award winning Taunton musical instrument business is on the move.

John Packer Ltd, of Staplegrove Road, Taunton, is moving into larger premises at Chelston Business Park, Wellington, in September.

Director, Rob Hanson, said: “The last few years have seen huge expansion in our business especially internationally and we have not only won the Taunton Deane award for Best Growth Business 2018, but also been awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the International Growth Sector.”

The Queen’s Award is the highest accolade a business can receive and is in recognition of the company’s substantial international growth in overseas earnings and commercial success within the musical instrument manufacturing and retailing sector over the last four years.
The move from Staplegrove Road, where the company has had a high profile base since 2002, provides an interesting business opportunity for another enterprise.

Duncan Brown, Commercial Partner at Greenslade Taylor Hunt, who are marketing the building, said: “This is a prominently located versatile building suitable for an owner-occupier or investor.

“The upper floors and roof terrace have scope to be converted back to a maisonette as was its original use and the ground floor is suitable for a number of retail, clinic and other uses.”

The building is well situated opposite Taunton School and at the junction of Bindon Road. It is on the market at a guide price of £225,000.

Both commercial and residential properties are nearby making it a great location for a business base.

Currently John Packer Ltd operates from Staplegrove Road and a rental unit in Cook Way. The move to Wellington will consolidate the business under one roof.
