A major high-end furniture maker is moving to Dunstable after securing a warehouse deal, commercial property consultant Kirkby Diamond has announced.
Swyft Home Ltd – which supplies furniture to John Lewis stores and other interiors retailers – has signed a long-term lease on a 36,214 square foot industrial unit in Southfields Road, Dunstable.
The relocation allows the business to grow from two smaller units to one larger premises, said Eamon Kennedy, commercial agency manager at Kirkby Diamond.
Kirkby Diamond was acting on behalf of the former owner-occupiers, a chair manufacturing company.
Swyft Home creates DIY sofas, chairs, ottomans and stools that can be delivered within 48 hours and assembled in minutes.
Eamon said: “This is a great deal for Swyft Home as it allows them to consolidate two operations into one building, bringing efficiencies and cost savings to the business.
“There was a lot of interest from potential occupants as the strong demand for industrial stock continues, and we were able to secure a five-year lease above the asking rent, which is a great result for our client. .”
The two-story detached warehouse includes a 22,860 square foot warehouse with an additional 7,294 square foot mezzanine and 6,060 square feet of office space.
