Aqua Mundus, a leading provider of grease traps for commercial kitchens, has invested £240,000 in a new headquarters in Warwickshire, aided by commercial property agents John Truslove.

Aqua Mundus has bought the 2,960 sq ft unit at 3a Waterloo Industrial Estate, Bidford-on-Avon, after finding the premises with the help of Ben Truslove, joint managing director at John Truslove.

As well as providing a base of operations for the water waste company’s national operations, the property is an industrial investment providing income from other tenants across the three units – comprising office and workshop space – as well as storage containers let on rolling tenancies.

Aqua Mundus specialises in providing grease traps and separators, food sediment traps and biological drain treatment systems for wastewater treatment solutions.

Grease traps and treatment systems are mandatory under British Building Regulations for commercial hot food premises and the firm’s main customers are commercial kitchens and food service establishments needing help dealing with fat, oil and grease from daily operations.

Last summer, the company was called in to install a new system for top public school Eton College, where two kitchens produce around 80,000 meals per year for pupils.

Ben Truslove said: “This property provides an ideal base of operations for a company with a nationwide customer base, while also acting as an industrial investment providing additional income.

"It is the ideal platform as Aqua Mundus continues to grow, building on its strong reputation for top quality service.”
