Northampton based engineering company, Metrol Springs Limited, has recently relocated to significantly larger premises on Moulton Park Industrial Estate in Northampton.

Metrol Springs specialises in the design and manufacture of gas struts, gas springs, and gas spring systems; designing and manufacturing under the same roof.

Rob Lamb and Andy Marks (both pictured), Directors of Metrol Springs Limited started the company in 1984. The relocation to new premises has allowed the company to expand and bring their two existing facilities under one roof.

Rob Lamb comments:-  ‘This relocation onto one site has enabled us to increase efficiency, and capitalise on our investment in new machinery.  Furthermore with rapid sales increases in Europe, the Far East, and more recently North America, we are now in a position to continue our growth in export.   This new, impressive workspace will only help to bring our aims in design and manufacture to fruition.

Drake Commercial, who handled the sale of the new facility to Metrol Springs were subsequently instructed by the company to dispose of their two existing manufacturing units on Tenter Road, also on Moulton Park.  These units have been let to M & M Access and D T Compressor Services respectively, both of whom have taken new leases.  The buildings were let after a short period of marketing.  Nicholas Roberts, Partner at Drake Commercial adds:-

‘We were pleased to have concluded the sale of the Clayfield Close property to Metrol and it was clear that it suited their needs perfectly.  The added bonus was receiving their instructions to market their two existing facilities. I am pleased that we managed to achieve a result whereby the two new tenants took occupation of the Tenter Road properties almost immediately after Metrol Springs relocated, thereby minimising any void period.  The speed of these lettings is indicative of a market that shows continued signs of improvement’.
