Screwfix takes up unit at the Heathrow Estate

Screwfix, advised by Colliers International, has taken a unit at the Heathrow Estate in West London, a deal which marks the specialist trade tool supplier’s 200th site in the UK.

Unit 15B Heathrow Estate, Silver Jubilee Way, Heathrow will be used by Screwfix as a trade counter and will extend the chain’s service to the busy West London market.

Amit Babbar of Colliers International commented: “We are delighted to have helped Screwfix bring their 200th UK site to completion. Colliers International have been working alongside Screwfix for five years, and in that time, we’ve seen a vast growth in the extent of the company’s network. We are looking forward to helping Screwfix develop and continue their acquisition strategy in the future.”

Lucy O’Donnell, Property Manager at Screwfix added: “Reaching the 200 branch milestone is fantastic. We have launched 21 branched in January 2012 alone which has powerfully bolstered our national network, giving us geographical breadth and depth by supporting our busy urban patches – we now have 50 stores inside the M25 – as well as taking the brand into new locations such as Cornwall, along with significant expansion in South Wales, West Scotland and Yorkshire.

“This expansion is set to continue throughout 2012 and Screwfix is looking forward to the 300 milestone already.”
