Quantum Business Park, Ipswich which was put on hold after the financial crash of 2008, is now fully let.

Owners Artisan (UK) Developments bought the site prior to the financial crash but it was it by a period of uncertainty.

Michel Eyres, managing director of Artisan, said; “The impace of the economic crash was to stop any development for commercial property for some years.”

Artisan had been investing in the park, on Whitehouse Road, and the first phase completed in 2007 include a Safestore storage building with a 20,000 sq ft foot print, and a terrace of four industrial units, let to Europ Car Parks, Tool Station, Ipswich Transport Musuem and Ridgeons.

It wasn’t until late 2015, following discussions with Chris Moody at Savills, they decided there was sufficient interest to re-launch the site.

Quantum Business Park is fully let with U Plastics, Autoglass, Edmundson Electrical and Greggs the bakers occupying the new units.

John Bloom, property manager at Edmundson Electrical said: “I had been digging around for a new site in Ipswich and with the help of Savills came upon White House Road. We have 400 premises nationwide, this is one of our bigger units at 12000sq.ft.” He continues, “Artisan were great to work with, although there weren’t many, they were good with variations on the job.”

Artisan has huge experience developing business parks throughout East Anglia and the northern Home Counties, with more than 114 commercial space projects including 13 business parks.
