Cutler Heights at Bradford

Major Bradford expansion for national event hire company

A nationwide company that specialises in the hire of furniture, catering equipment, refrigeration facilities, tableware and related accessories, for all types of events, is doubling the size of its Bradford base after expanding into a brand new industrial estate.

Event Hire UK has leased a 17,000 sq ft unit at Cutler Heights Business Park on Cutler Heights Lane, which is less than two miles from both the M606 and Bradford city centre.

The estate is being marketed by Leeds property consultancy, GV&Co and there are now just three brand new hybrid industrial units remaining that range from 1,980 to 2,723 sq ft. The three units offer high quality first floor office accommodation and allocated parking in a fully secure estate with 24-hour security.

Established in 2005 in Walsall near Birmingham, Event Hire UK expanded into Bradford in 2009 and was previously based at Enterprise Court on Prince Street, approximately a mile from its new premises. The company currently employs an 18-strong team in Bradford and plans to create four new jobs over the next 12 months.

With further bases in London and Manchester, the company now stocks more than 2.5million items that it hires out nationally, to clients ranging from Leeds and Reading Festivals through to golf’s original major, The Open Championship and corporate events for as few as 10 people.

Jean Moller, regional operations director, who heads Event Hire UK’s Bradford site, explained: “Since opening in Bradford 14 years ago, we’ve experienced significant growth and now supply products for all types of events including festivals, carnivals, elections, weddings, corporate functions, Christmas parties and everything else.

“We had outgrown our previous premises and when work completed on this brand new, modern unit, close to our previous base, it was ideal for us. It will enable us to significantly increase our stock levels in Yorkshire and offer a faster and more efficient service to our clients, which makes it an exciting move for us.”

Will Woodhall from GV&Co, said: “Event Hire UK is a well-established and expanding business that needed a modern, high quality and secure building close to the motorway network, so Cutler Heights Business Park was the perfect fit.

“Brand new buildings in this part of Bradford, that are ready for immediate occupation, are few and far between, so we’re already generating good levels of interest in the three remaining units from local businesses that require ground floor warehouse and storage space together with office accommodation.”
