Wake Smith advises Timber Garden Buildings on move

Wake Smith Solicitors has helped a timber garden building manufacturer secure a new £1.3m home in South Yorkshire.

The 152,000 sq ft site on Rotherham’s Chesterton Road, once used for the production of KP Nuts, has been snapped up by Timber Garden Buildings for the manufacture and distribution of garden sheds, summerhouses, garden storage and tanalised timber products to trade customers.

Tom Weightman, a solicitor at Wake Smith, said that the firm had been appointed to handle the legal aspect of the Chesterton Road site sale on behalf of Timber Garden Buildings. “[We] saw this as a great project which has enabled our client to reach new operational standards and retain a South Yorkshire base,” he said.

Graham Vernon, managing director of Timber Garden Buildings said: “The Chesterton Road site is perfectly positioned for our operations and enables us to expand the business through a more suitable manufacturing base and distribution set up.

“The decision to purchase the entire site was helped by the efficient legal advice from Wake Smith and marks a significant landmark in the development of our business.”
