Business park full as museum supplier gets new HQ

Published on Tuesday, October 13, 2020

One of Bedfordshire’s premier business parks is now fully let after a deal which will see a leading supplier to museums, libraries and galleries relocate its headquarters to the site.

 

Conservation by Design (CXD International) has agreed a five-year lease on a 10,301 sq ft warehouse unit at Newmarket Court, Kingston, Milton Keynes.

 

Kirkby Diamond was acting on behalf of landlord CBRE Global Investors. The letting means there is currently no available space on the business park, which has a total of over 100,000 sq ft of space. Occupiers include Big Rock, fast fit and a variety of other related occupiers.

 

Luke Tillison, partner and head of commercial agency and industrial at Kirkby Diamond’s Milton Keynes office, said: “Conservation by Design was very keen to find a new headquarters in a prestigious location with very easy access to the motorway network.

 

“Newmarket Court is adjacent to junctions 13 and 14 of the M1 and is regarded as the premier business park in Milton Keynes. The company wanted to relocate from its current base in Kempston and this unit provides the company with the perfect location for its new headquarters.”

 

Since 1992, museums, galleries, libraries and archives worldwide have turned to CXD for a comprehensive range of high quality conservation storage and display products which include furniture, showcases, acid-free boxes, museum boards and specialist papers.

Emma Murphy, marketing manager of Conservation By Design (CXD) said “We are delighted with our new space; we had outgrown our previous premises. Our new location gives CXD the opportunity to bring our manufacturing, warehousing and office teams together under one roof and geographically it is close to our showcase manufacturing plant.

“All of these factors will contribute to a smoother running of the business and ultimately offer our customers a better service.”
