The latest deal to be confirmed by the Peterborough office of Barker Storey Matthews - now part of Eddisons - is the sale of three newly built, detached warehouse units on a one acre site, in a rural location near Stamford, to SUPA Water - a new start-up business manufacturing paper water bottles for its own premium filtered water.

The business begins production this month (December) in its new plant at Glebe Farm, Carlby, near Stamford.

 The three industrial units give 7,755 sq ft (720.4 sq m) of warehouse and office space in total and forms the SUPA - which stands for Single Use Plastic Alternative - Water bottling plant and the production space for the manufacture of its pioneering paper bottle.

 The rural location of the unit at Glebe Farm is one of the elements which attracted SUPA Water’s entrepreneurial founder, Scott Nicholas, to the Carlby location.

 He said, “We had looked at a couple of other units in the area, but this brand new unit, in such a rural location and with good views of the surrounding countryside felt like the right location.

 “The new production and bottling plant facility is of a size and setting where we can expand the SUPA Water operation as the business grows, with a view to employing up to 15 people by the middle of next year (2020).”

 Barker Storey Matthews was the sole agent under instruction which saw the three units and the site offered to let or for sale at a guide price of over half a million pounds. While the purchase price by SUPA Water is undisclosed, the agent confirmed that all parties involved in the transaction were pleased with the final sale price achieved, following interest from a wide range of local businesses who registered interest in leasing or buying the site.

 Freddie Dade, of Barker Storey Matthews’ Peterborough office, led the instruction at Glebe Farm, Carlby. Speaking about the sale to SUPA Water, he commented, “It’s an ideal facility and appropriate setting for such a fresh, young business.  

 “We wish Scott and his team well in their new venture.”
