Fish and Chip Shop Supplier Heads to the South Coast

  • Date: 18th April 2022

Hellier Langston are pleased to announce the long-term letting of Unit O Fort Wallington.

Unit O Fort Wallington Industrial Estate is situated in Fareham, 1 mile from Junction 11 of M27. The 15,921 sq ft unit comprises a single-storey workshop accommodation and single-storey offices providing a reception area.

The previous tenant, Nationwide Accident Repair, went into administration in late 2020, leaving the landlord with a major project to strip out Nationwide’s fitout. The landlord also needed to invest heavily in refurbishing the property to attract a new occupier; this included a new roof, new loading doors and removing internal walls to make the property more attractive to warehouse occupiers.

Since the refurbishments, the unit has recently been let to T. Quality who has agreed on a new long term lease on the property. T. Quality was searching for a South Coast property to aid their ongoing investment in their delivery network and to cope with increasing demand.

T. Quality has been trading for over 100 years, supplying fish and chip shops with food solutions, ranging from frozen fish and meat products to packaging and cleaning products and much more. This has now been expanded to all fast food outlets.

T. Quality already operated from 11 branches, in Swindon, Bovey Tracey, Darlington, Avonmouth, Swansea, Peterborough, Birmingham, Leeds, Bridlington, Staplehurst and most recently Glasgow opening in March 2022.

Mike Crees, Managing Director of T. Quality said: “We are delighted to finally be able to open our newest depot in Fareham, Portsmouth. This is a really exciting opportunity for T.Quality, the site will add further capacity to our operation but will also help to enhance customer service levels with increased delivery dates and the opportunity to reach new areas.

The site at Fort Wallington is ideal for our business operations. We are a stone’s throw away from the M27 which provides excellent access across to Southampton and Bournemouth one way and Brighton and Eastbourne the opposite.”

Hellier Langston Director Andy Hellier who handled the letting on behalf of the landlord Mileway said “The journey of letting Unit O has demonstrated how the disappointment of losing a tenant unexpectedly in 2020 can be turned into a major positive for the landlord. Taking advantage of the strength of the warehouse and industrial market, the comprehensive refurbishment of the property has enabled the property to be let to a strong, national occupier on a long term lease at a rent significantly higher than the previous tenant was paying.”
