Purex International strikes deal to take unit at Thorne Park

Purex International Ltd, a leading manufacturer of fume extraction systems, supplying machines to many industries and blue chip manufacturing companies globally for over two decades, has completed the purchase of Unit 5 at Thorne Park, Doncaster, from Henry Boot Developments Limited.

The company has taken 18,680 sq.ft on a freehold basis for an undisclosed sum. The deal comes only weeks after Henry Boot Developments announced that 80% of the units at Thorne Park were either sold or under offer.

Purex aims to improve product quality, reduce process costs and protect the health of personnel and the environment. The company is renowned for the reliability of its technology and innovation in this field and will relocate from its current facility based in Rotherham.

Unit 5 is a high quality warehouse/production unit with 8 metre eaves, 50 kNm2 floor loading, natural lighting to the warehouse and 18 car parking spaces. The unit includes 1,507 sq.ft of high specification, first floor office space.

Vivienne Clements, Director at Henry Boot Developments, commented: “We have seen a huge amount of interest in the units at Thorne and are extremely pleased to announce the deal with Purex.

The deal represents the confidence and demand within the local market for units of this size and quality. We have only two units remaining at Thorne and are looking to achieve full occupancy by the Spring.”

Andy Easey, Operations Director at Purex International Limited, commented: “We are thrilled to have completed this deal to take one of the remaining units at Thorne Park. The development ticked all the boxes for us as a business and fits well with our expansion plans going forward. We are a South Yorkshire company servicing clients globally and felt the location and facilities on offer at Thorne Park stood out within the market. We look forward to relocating to Thorne Park in the next couple of months.”

The Modern Slavery Act 2015 - Group Statement: View here

Henry Boot PLC and its Group Companies has, following the introduction of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the “Act”) implemented a number of measures which seek to bring about greater transparency and scrutiny into our various supply chains, in order to combat slavery and trafficking activities. Further to this, over the past year we have been reviewing the measures put in place and seeking to identify additional actions to strengthen our due diligence and transparency. The aim of the Act is in line with our own ‘Henry Boot Way’ Vision and Values, as updated in 2017, which include ‘Respect’, ‘Integrity’ and ‘Collaboration’, all of which are relevant to our approach in this regard.

We continue to keep under regular review our Human Trafficking and Slavery Statement (the ‘Statement’), setting out the activities undertaken to reduce the risk of slavery and trafficking activities being present within our business operations. These measures include the introduction of an Anti-Slavery Policy, due diligence requirements, and mandatory contract clauses seeking compliance by our supply chain with appropriate anti-slavery measures. Additional measures that have recently been put into place to increase knowledge and vigilance throughout our organisation and supply chain include posters and awareness cards across our sites.

We will continue to regularly work with our partners, contractors, suppliers and other stakeholders, as well as keeping industry best practice under review, to monitor our approach for effectiveness, and consider any changes or additional measures as appropriate.
