BB&J Finalises Aerospace Relocation Property Deal

Bondholder BB&J have finalised the lease of a 12,000 sq ft industrial unit in Raynesway to an international aerospace hardware and fasteners company which is relocating its UK base from Cannock to Derby.

BB&J have been working proactively with Blue Sky Industries to meet their relocation requirements in line with its expanding European operations to meet increased business opportunities with Airbus and other major OEMs across Europe.

Graham Bancroft from BB&J continued: “Having worked closely with Blue Sky Industries to understand their requirements, and having recently taken the instruction to market this unit from Bailey Construction we thought that they would be a good match.

“They recently acquired this property with a view to achieving a letting and we were able to quickly bring both parties together to secure the deal.

“This further strengthens Derby’s credentials as the home of planes, trains and automobiles and proves that the city is at the top of the relocation wish list for supply chain businesses across the transport industries."

General Manager Jonathan Morgan explained that Blue Sky Industries was founded in California with other worldwide operations established in Brazil and China.

He said that the privately-owned company was planning to expand its current workforce of ten in the UK to around 25 in the coming two years in sales, inspection and warehousing roles – all based at the new Derby location.
