A company which is the largest in the UK specialising in vehicle preparation management is to open a new facility in Shrewsbury.

The company will shortly move into Unit 7, Knights Park, Hussey Road, a modern end of terrace building, which extends to just over 6,900 sq ft.
Toby Shaw, who handled the sale for Towler Shaw Roberts, said: “Assured Group Ltd is a big company based in the Warwick and they have decided to open an additional facility in Shrewsbury to enable it to increase its equipment division.
“Unit 7 used to be occupied by the Welshpool Printing Company, who have relocated back to Mid Wales, so it became available and we have now agreed a sale.
“The building stimulated a lot of interest which reflects that there’s a scarcity of this type of good quality accommodation in the Battlefield area.”
The property also benefits from 12 dedicated car parking spaces with a forecourt loading and delivery area.

The building had a guide price of £435,000.
