Industrial | Office | Paul Scourfield | 18 February 2019

Tor Coatings Ltd, which manufactures, supplies and distributes a wide range of professional and consumer coatings, has successfully leased a brand new, and purpose built, 135,000 sq.ft storage and distribution base in Follingsby Park, Gateshead.

The facility, constructed on behalf of Legal & General, will be home to Tor’s European head office, Rust-Oleum Europe, as well being the company’s dedicated storage and distribution base for the UK.

Powell Williams LLP acted as the tenants representative, and interfaced with the consulting team for the landlord, to deliver the building which will be fully operational in March 2019.

Rob Hinton, European Supply Chain Director, Tor Coatings Ltd said:
“This project was complex and involved adhering to a stringent timeline. This is the first time we have worked with Powell Williams and I have been delighted by their tenacious, and persistent approach, to the project, which helped to ensure that the outcome was successful.”

Paul Scourfield, partner in our Leeds office, said:
“In order to deliver this building for Tor, within a short time frame, it was essential that we focused on not only the timing of the programme, but also an integrated and flexible approach between all parties involved.”
