Speaking on behalf of Osborne King, Gareth McGimpsey remarked: “Even though the showroom, industrial and warehousing sector continues to experience challenging times, there have been some signs of improvement recently. For example, small industrial units around the 1,000 – 2,500 sq ft mark are still proving quite popular to rent partly as a result of some businesses consolidating and others either downsizing or re-locating We’re also finding that rentals with an option to purchase are proving to be popular, particularly within the last three months. What hasn’t changed is the fact that location is still a key factor in attracting businesses, which is why this complex at Mallusk Road has been so successful in attracting such a diverse range of businesses that includes the Donnelly Motor Group, one of the largest and most successful companies of its kind in Northern Ireland.”
The Mallusk Road is the main thoroughfare in the area and is also home to business occupiers including the Henderson Group, HSS Hire and Wilson’s Auctions.
