An £11 million advanced manufacturing unit is set to be developed at a business and technology park in Coventry by commercial property developer Barberry Industrial Ltd.

The company has revealed plans for a 50,750 sq ft industrial unit at Ansty Park, which has established itself as a hub for research and development and high-tech manufacturing. The park is home to major occupiers Rolls-Royce, Cadent, The Manufacturing Technology Centre, Meggitt and The London Taxi Company.

An application for detailed planning consent for a Grade A unit has been submitted by Barberry to Rugby Borough Council.

Jon Robinson, development director at West Midlands-based Barberry, said: “Ansty Park is a fantastic location for Barberry’s latest development, being one of the most significant business and technology parks in the Midlands. We are excited to unveil Barberry 50, a high-tech, build to suit unit which is ideal for a new headquarters facility or centre of excellence for a suitable occupier, available on both a leasehold and freehold basis.

“Once we achieve planning consent, the unit will be built to BREEAM Excellent and EPC A standards and has been designed with a focus on sustainability.”

He added: “This significant investment demonstrates Barberry’s continued commitment to the region and the development while helping to address the continued shortage of new, high quality manufacturing accommodation in the West Midlands.

“New buildings such as this help to create the quality accommodation that local, regional and national businesses need in order to expand their operations within the Midlands, creating new jobs and attracting investment. We continue to see significant occupier demand for new industrial and warehouse units.”

Barberry has a 3.6 million sq ft industrial/logistics development portfolio with a Gross Development Value of in excess of £500 million. It is currently developing a £40 million state-of-the-art manufacturing and design facility for a global leader in engine and flight controls systems in Gloucestershire. The 207,000 sq ft centre of excellence for Moog’s Aircraft Controls Segment is being built on a 10-acre site at Ashchurch, Tewkesbury.
