Abingdon Business Park welcomes a host of new tenants

Royal London Asset Management and XLB has successfully let the last remaining unit at Foxcombe, a 10,000 sq ft high tech industrial unit, on a 10-year lease to Alloyed.

Alloyed is a high growth digital metallurgy company delivering next generation performance for metal components through its unique stack of alloy and process design technologies. 

Originally spun out from Oxford University in 2017, with its headquarters and alloy research facility based at the Oxford Industrial Park, the new site in Abingdon represents a significant expansion of its state-of-the-art additive manufacturing capabilities.

“This move represents an important and exciting step on our journey to become a major producer of additively manufactured metal components for a range of high-tech industries, including electronics, automotive, aerospace and energy.   

“The site in Abingdon is our first purpose built prototyping and manufacturing centre with associated metallurgy lab and testing capabilities.  As a high-tech engineering business with significant further significant growth opportunities, we look forward to investing further and bringing a range of advanced additive manufacturing roles to the site, including both mechanical and process engineers as well as technician and quality roles” explainedPieter Guichelaar, Electronics Business Unit Director.

Elsewhere on the park, Williams Jet Tenders has acquired 14,500 sq ft at 3B Colwell Drive to satisfy their expansion requirements.  Founded in 2002, the Williams brothers introduced the Ski Rib and now manufacture new and innovative tenders. 

Tom Dowdell, Head of Marketing at Williams Jet Tenders said: “Williams Jet Tenders were looking for additional storage space to support our manufacturing and commercial facility nearby in Berinsfield. After careful consideration, the unit on Abingdon Business Park was a great match for the size we needed, as well as having useful transport links to surrounding areas. We look forward to settling into the area and believe this step will help us achieve our business goals over the coming years.”

Cellmark, which occupies over 50,000 sq ft at Abingdon Business Park re-committed to the park by extending its lease and acquiring additional space for its state-of-the-art laboratory facility. Cellmark pioneered the introduction of DNA analysis for the world’s first private DNA fingerprinting company.

William Poole, Partner, XLB said: “Royal London and XLB are delighted to welcome Alloyed and Williams Jet Tenders to the park. Both companies are at the forefront of their respective sectors, and we are excited to be working with them going forward. Furthermore, we are pleased Cellmark are expanding and have re-committed to the park for a further 10 years – they are now one of the leading employers in the area.

“Abingdon Business Park continues to be a leading location for Oxfordshire’s precision engineering, life sciences and manufacturing occupiers.”

Abingdon Business Park is a 50-acre mixed-use scheme comprising 464,000 sq ft of office, research and development / Industrial Property. The secure site benefits from 24-hour security, an onsite Park Management team and is home to over 35 businesses.
