More new business premises set for Sheffield City Region Enterprise Zone

Posted on 1 May 2013 · Posted in News

The Sheffield City Region Enterprise Zone is set for further development as it plans to build a number of ‘ready made’ business premises to keep up with demand.

The new units will vary in size from 10,000 square feet to 50,000 square feet, and will be developed by land owner Harworth Estates. 

Developers have entitled this exciting new venture “R-evolution @ the AMP”. This is seen this as the logical next step for the Sheffield City Region’s hugely successful ‘Advanced Manufacturing Park’. It is situated within easy access to Sheffield Parkway and Junction 33 of M1, and is already home to world class research and manufacturing organisations including Boeing and Rolls Royce.

Chris Scholey, Local Enterprise Partnership Board Member and Chair of the Sheffield City Region Enterprise Zone Governance Board, said:

“This new R-evolution development will help us to build on the success of the Sheffield City Region Enterprise Zone – which in its first year attracted 15 new occupiers, created 228 new jobs and was picked out as the number 1 UK free zone by the Financial Times.

“It is understandable that international business leaders want to be able to join our growing Modern Manufacturing and Technology community as quickly as possible – and ready-to-use industrial premises make the transition easy for them.

“Industrial units on the Sheffield City Region Enterprise Zone are in extremely high demand. I’d recommend that Modern Manufacturing and Technology businesses move quickly if they want to be part of the Advanced Manufacturing Park, which is already home to world-class organisations including Boeing and Rolls-Royce.”

The Sheffield City Region’s Enterprise Zone was recently recognised by the Financial Times fDi magazine as the number 1 in the UK for modern manufacturing and technology.
