"Our industry has faced unprecedented challenges in the last six months to meet changing needs, so to see this kind of activity 21,000sq ft of lettings in such a short timescale - is a welcome boost."

Paul McLeman, Leasing Director at Orbit Developments and colleague Benn Dickinson worked closely on the deals.  Paul commented: “These lettings have been some of the most rewarding I have been involved in. It’s no secret that our industry has faced unprecedented challenges in the last six months as we have worked with existing and new customers to meet changing needs. So to see this kind of activity – 21,000 sq ft of lettings in such a short space of time - has been a very welcome boost.


“Lucid is an existing client – world-leading in its field - so they have extended their relationship with us. Illingworth Research is an amazing, global success story and a Macclesfield company so we were delighted to deliver surroundings commensurate with their remarkable progress. Willows Ingredients is another world player that has chosen Tytherington as its growing UK base.”
