Howdens Joinery, the leading supplier of kitchens and joinery products, has opened its first trade counter in Haverhill, Suffolk, after locating to Moonhall Business Park.

The nationwide company, which has more than 550 depots across the country, has taken a 15 year lease on three refurbished units, totalling 8,476 sq ft, as part of its expansion plans.  Fit-out works are underway at the high quality, modern space, which includes roller shutter doors, a yard area at the front and parking facilities, ready for the store to open this month (March).

Moonhall Business Park, which is owned and managed by leading property company London & Cambridge Properties (LCP), is an established industrial area in Helions Bumpstead Road, adjacent to the A1017 Haverhill Bypass.  Other tenants include Thermosafe, Feelgood Fitness, Everlac and Plumb Center.

Mark Churchill, head of property at Howdens Joinery, said "we have been looking for the right premises in Haverhill for some time and this new depot will enable us to grow our local business.  We are very pleased to be opening at Moonhall Business Park as part of our ongoing expansion programme".

Nicholas Garrett, asset manager for LCP, said "this is an excellent location for Howdens Joinery because it benefits from excellent transport links, while the units themselves provide premium quality space and facilities for the business.  We are pleased to have assisted Howdens in finding a new location for its growing business".

Barker Storey Matthews acted on behalf of LCP for the letting, while Montagu Evans advised Howdens Joinery.  There is one remaining unit of 7,308 sq ft (unit 13-15) available to let.  To arrange a viewing, contact Ben Green at BSM Cambridge office on 01223 467155.
