Schofield Sweeney advises Quick Reach Powered Access on expansion

Schofield Sweeney has advised Quick Reach Powered Access on the expansion of its head office and distribution facility in Manchester.

The provider of powered access equipment such as scissor lifts and articulated booms saw demand for its equipment increase following the lifting of lockdown restrictions imposed because of the Covid-19 pandemic. As a result, the company needed more office and workshop space.

Dave Barton, director of Quick Reach, said of the expansion at its head office and distribution facility in Manchester: “Our expanded Manchester head office allows extra space for additional offices, storage and a new dedicated training facility for IPAF and PASMA courses. Our head office in Manchester was the very first location for Quick Reach and continues to be the busiest.”

“Over the past five years we have effectively doubled our Manchester head office and are now recognised suppliers for household names such as Everton Football Club, David Lloyd Gyms, and Ikea.”

“The expansion was also part of our strategic development plan as we look to expand our national branch network with future sites planned for London and Dundee. Our team continues to grow, and the expansion allows us to recruit new people and provide accredited training courses to help with their professional development.”

Barton said the support of Schofield Sweeney “has been excellent”, with the Yorkshire law firm providing property legal assistance all the way through to the detailed due diligence required to formulate a successful business transaction.

He continued: “Schofield Sweeney has helped us achieve a great result; we look forward to forging an even closer working relationship in the challenging but exciting times ahead.”

Pardeep Khela (pictured), associate in Schofield Sweeney’s commercial property team, said: “We are delighted to have assisted Quick Reach with the expansion of the Manchester branch.”

“It was clear on the outset that the expansion was urgently needed. The technical nature of the site and the practical and title problems posed made the transaction challenging but very rewarding. From the entire Schofield Sweeney team, we congratulate Quick Reach on their continued expansion.”
