En-Rich Carpets Ltd is the new occupier of Unit 15 Benedict Square, a 115.85 sq m (1,247 sq ft) unit on which it has taken a three year lease. The two other units let on the site this year - Units 10 and 25 - are of a similar size and both have occupiers secured on three year leases too.
Benedict Square is a CCTV-monitored trading estate of 44 terraced units and is close to the A15 Werrington Parkway.
It's acknowledged that there are a lack of commercial properties in Peterborough that are small, idustrial units of up to 2,000 sq ft such as those as Benedict Sqaure.
The lack of supply was also noted by En Shadat, owner and director of En-Rich Carpets Ltd, when he began his search last spring (2017) for suitable premises in which to launch his new business venture after 20 years working for other carpet suppliers and retailers.
He comments, “As a brand new small business, I was looking for well-located but affordable premises for the showroom and on-site customer parking was a pre-requisite too.
“It took a while to find the right premises but the unit at Benedict Square fits the bill from mine and my customers’ point of view. The other recent lettings will help profile the trading estate as a good place from which to trade for small businesses like mine.”
