AN enterprise park in North Yorkshire is celebrating a raft of new deals

Harrison Developments LLP, the owners and developers of Malton Enterprise Park, located next to the A64, has said that several new deals had been signed.

New arrivals include Puddleducks Children’s Nursery, the Pebblechild charity, No Limits Cycling Be Amazing Arts, while existing occupiers Bella di Notte, Aquapoint and The Chef’s Choice have moved into new hi-spec business units on the park.

In addition, a number of other bespoke units on the 180,000sq ft site, ranging from 2,000sq ft upwards, have been sold to private investors. In total, occupiers from a range of business sectors have taken a combined total of 100,000sq ft at Malton’s premier employment park.

Sean Harrison, managing director of Harrison Developments, said: “These new deals are a tremendous vindication of the substantial investment we have made in our park.

“More than 180 new and sustainable jobs have been created on site, which makes us very proud. The wide variety of successful businesses here is also an indication of the strength of the economy in the Ryedale area.

“We are especially pleased that successful Yorkshire businesses such as Bella di Notte and Dales The Chef’s Choice have moved into larger premises on our park, because they like the location and the ambience so much. We have been delighted to accommodate their needs, as they have outgrown their current buildings.

“These are not the easiest of times, as we slowly emerge from a global pandemic into a worrying cost of living crisis, but the current level of activity at our park gives us confidence for the future.”

Ben Lawson of No Limits Cycling, said: “I can’t speak highly enough of the Malton Enterprise Park, which is the perfect base for us. The flexibility of the mezzanine unit in which we are in has meant that I have been able to transform it into a cycling paradise, with an extensive showroom and offices.”

Meanwhile, Be Amazing Arts have relocated from Showfield Road in Malton. Since 2019, the acclaimed company has been involved with theatre productions, including youth theatre and creative arts workshops.

Operation director Natalie Aconley said: “Our previous premises were next door to a very busy road, which was a worry as we work extensively with children. Here we are safe and secure. We have also been able to transform our new premises into the ideal office, rehearsing and performance space.”

Sean Harrison has very positive plans for the future.

He said: “We have a further 100,000sq ft of quality employment land at the park, available on a design and build basis. We will build speculatively and will either sell or lease the new units.”
