Whittle Jones Chartered Surveyors; agents acting on behalf of Northern Trust Company Ltd are delighted to announce that One Sports Warehouse who joined Drum Industrial Estate in the summer of 2016 has already doubled its capacity on the estate.

One Sports Warehouse is a specialist sports based retailer, run by Simon Lee and Lynne Dobison. Simon commented about the expansion strategy “We opened our original unit on 1st August 2016, and since then have moved to our new 1,600 sq ft unit. We are delighted to have had to move after only 7 months of trading, which shows that there is a gap in the market for this sector. We love having an industrial unit as it allows our customers to experience our ‘demo area’ which is built into the store. We currently stock Field Hockey equipment but are always on the lookout for new sports equipment to add to our offering.” Further details can be found on the company’s dedicated website at www.one-sports-warehouse.com

Drum Industrial Estate, Chester le Street extends to almost 40,000 sq ft of modern industrial / trade counter space and is currently fully let. Nick Kilkenny, Management Surveyor at Whittle Jones said “Drum Industrial Estate fronts the main A693 and is located less than 1 mile from Junction 63 of the A1(M). With its excellent transport links to the wider region it makes it the ideal base for companies to run their business from.

Whittle Jones is committed to assisting its occupiers to expand and relocate within its portfolio wherever possible; so we are delighted that we were able to meet the growing aspirations of One Sports Warehouse and secure their continued business at Drum Industrial Estate.”
