Medi-tech firm secures Yorkshire distribution hub

Swedish medi-tech company Sandvik has secured a 15-year multi-million pound deal for a 112,000 sq ft orthopaedic implant and instrument production and distribution facility at JF Finnegan’s Beighton Link Business Park in South Yorkshire.

Work is now underway on the facility, which incorporates a 90,000 sq ft workshop, 22,500 sq ft of office accommodation over three floors, and 150 parking spaces.

Upon its completion towards the end of 2009, the facility will bring together all the finish processing and supply management activities for the production of materials from Sandvik’s existing Sheffield facilities. The development will incorporate environmentally-friendly technology, minimising energy consumption and it is expected that the business will grow in the future, enabling the creation of new jobs.

Sandvik will join existing tenant Viaturn, which is located within the 55,000 sq ft of industrial and business units developed in Phase 1 of the 15-acre site, which is situated just off Junction 31 of the M1. Crossland Otter Hunt was the sole letting agent. Lambert Smith Hampton will provide project management services for Sandvik.
