A Tasty Deal!

ADM Wild Flavours have acquired 10,000 sq ft at Think Park on Trafford Park on a new 10-year lease from Think Money. We advised ADM in the relocation of their laboratory and offices from Guinness Road on Trafford Park. The company has also moved staff up from their Luton office.

Building Surveyors BWP project managed the fit out, which was undertaken by Overbury. Director Mark Canning said: “Working with ADM Wild Flavours has been a real pleasure. The company is a world leader in the massive international flavourings market and the journey consolidating their Luton and Trafford Park offices and labs onto a single site at Think Park has been a long and sometimes challenging road. But we got there in the end!”

Canning O’Neill, possibly better known for its office disposal work in the Greater Manchester office markets, where each year the firm consistently lets and sells more office space than its larger national and multinational competitors, now can boast an increasing share of the Tenant Rep market.

Last year in addition to ADM, Canning O’Neill advised Beauty Bay on its strategic expansion opportunities and has recently completed the relocation of software company, Proof ID, to Exchange Quay in Salford Quays.

A number of other retained client requirements are at various stages of the acquisition process including those for National Nuclear Laboratories, Protector Insurance and QA Consulting.

Commented Mark Canning “Our widespread coverage of the letting market gives us a privileged overview of the office market which is of a direct and significant benefit to our retained clients. Not only do we know what the options are for our client – both on and, more frequently, off market – but we also have a clear and changing picture of which other occupiers are searching for space in the same submarket at the same time. As office supply continues to tighten, the awareness of possible occupiers competing for the same space is where we really add value”.

It is not just making retained clients aware of what the accommodation options are, but of making them.
