Steele Raymond Advises On Historic Hill Brush Development in Wiltshire
A market-leading manufacturer of brushware and hygienic cleaning tools is moving in to the final phases of its historic new factory development.
The Hill Brush Company – which is a proud holder of a Royal Warrant to HM the Queen, plans to open its new development in December 2016
The construction of the factory facility marks a new era in the development of this family-owned and run Wiltshire-based business. The 10,000 sq metre site, on the outskirts of Mere, where the company was founded over 90 years ago, will include a new state-of-the-art factory, visitor centre, museum, cafe and shop.
The development of the new factory follows years of consultation and development as this iconic Wiltshire business has grown and neared capacity. The new facility will future-proof the company and bring new employment opportunities to the area.
Philip Coward, Managing Director of Hill Brush, said: “We are very much looking forward to the completion of our new state-of-the-art headquarters, which we have been planning for many years. We intend to remain at the heart of our local community, and with the opening of our Visitor Centre, we will be able to share our history and experience with local people and visitors alike.”
Philip continued: “The legal advice provided to us by Steele Raymond has been of huge value throughout this long and complex development process. The Steele Raymond team has been by our side every step of the way, providing responsive and first-rate advice.”
Chris Twaits, Head of Commercial Property at Steele Raymond, said: “We are delighted to be working with Hill Brush on this hugely important development. The team from Steele Raymond has been providing a range of legal advice to Hill Brush as they navigate this complex project, which will ensure the future of this historic Wiltshire-based employer and create new employment for the region. The new site is incredible - seeing this plan turn in to a reality is very pleasing.”
Construction on the site began in November 2015 and is likely to be completed by December 2016.
