Alexander Technologies has taken Units 1 and 2 at Doxford Drive on the new town’s South West Industrial Estate, on a ten-year lease.

The manufacturer is already based on the industrial estate but required larger premises due to an increase in business.

The units 1 and 2 comprise 40,000 sq ft in total and Alexander will be undertaking a comprehensive fit out of its new premises before occupying both buildings later this year.

Cushman & Wakefield’s Newcastle office and joint agents Naylors agreed the letting on behalf of the landlord, Logicor.

“At Logicor we always strive to listen to our customers and work with them, and our appointed agents, across our UK network to best facilitate their needs,” he said.
