AN INDUSTRIAL site once used for the production of KP Nuts has been sold to a Rotherham manufacturer of timber garden buildings in a £1.3 million deal.
The 152,000 sq ft site on Rotherham’s Chesterton Road has been snapped up by Timber Garden Buildings Ltd (TGB) for the manufacture and distribution of garden sheds, summerhouses, garden storage and other timber products.
Estate agents Knight Frank had previously let the units at the 4.8 acre site to Royal Mail for three months before the sale to TGB.
KP Nuts moved off the site after being bought out by German-headquarted multinational group, Intersnack, in 2012 and bagging a 141,000 sq ft building at Hellaby for a £16 million nut processing and packing facility.
Graham Vernon, managing director of Timber Garden Buildings Ltd, said: “The Chesterton Road site is perfectly positioned for our operations and enables us to expand the business through a more suitable manufacturing base and distribution set-up.”
