A sustainable health and beauty firm has exchanged contracts on a new state-of-the-art facility at a Derbyshire business park.
Weleda has signed a long-term lease on Unit B at Etiquette Park, in Ilkeston, which comprises a warehouse and office facility totalling 23,500 sq ft.
It is one of two new units at the business park, created by Clowes Developments, which is near the Manners Avenue Industrial Estate.
At the end of last year, Clowes announced that Catering24 had agreed a lease for the other new unit, which is a purpose-built warehouse and distribution facility.
Construction on site is progressing and both occupiers are looking to move into their premises by the end of this year.
Jayn Sterland, managing director at Weleda UK, said: “As a manufacturer of natural and organic cosmetics and holistic wellbeing products, it is essential that our stock is stored in very specific conditions.
“The new build will allow us to grow our business while remaining in the area where our manufacturing site and organic medicinal herb gardens are also based.”
