Schofield Sweeney has advised Quick Reach Powered Access Limited (Quick Reach) on the expansion of their head office and distribution facility in Manchester.
As the Quick Reach team and fleet size continue to grow it was vital to obtain more office and workshop space, as the demand for their equipment accelerated following the lifting of lockdown restrictions.
Dave Barton, Director of Quick Reach “Our expanded Manchester head office allows extra space for additional offices, storage and a new dedicated training facility for IPAF and PASMA courses. Our head office in Manchester was the very first location for Quick Reach and continues to be the busiest. Over the past five years we have effectively doubled our Manchester head office and are we now recognised suppliers for household names such as Everton Football Club, David Lloyd Gyms, and Ikea.”
“The expansion was also part of our strategic development plan as we look to expand our national branch network with future sites planned for London and Dundee. Our team continues to grow, and the expansion allows us to recruit new people and provide accredited training courses to help with their professional development.”
“We are in the strongest position in our history to respond to the recent Covid-19 challenges and prepare for the recovery to come with possible acquisitions. The support from Schofield Sweeney LLP has been excellent from property legal assistance through to the detailed due diligence required to formulate a successful business transaction. Schofield Sweeney LLP has helped us achieve a great result; we look forward to forging an even closer working relationships in the challenging but exciting times ahead.”
Pardeep Khela, associate in Schofield Sweeney’s commercial property team, said: “We are delighted to have assisted Quick Reach with the expansion of the Manchester branch. It was clear on the outset that the expansion was urgently needed. The technical nature of the site and the practical and title problems posed made the transaction challenging but very rewarding. From the entire Schofield Sweeney team, we congratulate Quick Reach on their continued expansion.”
