Priority for Falmouth businesses


Developer Priority Sites has signed three new deals on its £4.8 million Falmouth Business Park office development, which means just one unit from the original ten remains available.

Cornwall Marine Network, which supports the development of Cornwall’s marine industry sector, has expanded from its existing 1,861 sq ft unit on the park into an identical neighbouring unit on a 15-year lease. Cornwall Marine Network has grown rapidly in the last year and now employs 21 full-time staff.

Cornish fashion brand Seasalt, which already occupies two two-storey office units on the park totalling 7,120 sq ft, has bought a third single story office of 950 sq ft to cater for continued growth. And email marketing company Jarrang has taken a 950 sq ft single-story office on a six-year lease.

Robert McGuffie, Priority Sites’ senior development manager for the south west, said: “Falmouth Business Park now employs close to 100 people and it’s great to see existing tenants expanding and new tenants being attracted to this high quality office development with great views over Falmouth Bay.

“We now have just one unit remaining to let or buy, comprising 2,500 sq ft over two floors available separately or as whole, and we’d welcome enquiries from any business interested in locating to Falmouth Business Park.”

Cornwall Marine Network chief executive Paul Wickes said: “We are delighted to have been able to accommodate our expansion at the site. We have been very impressed with the facilities, plus its energy-saving features are in keeping with our own green agenda. The larger facilities will enable our specialist support staff to serve a growing number of marine businesses.”

Jarrang managing director, Stafford Sumner, said: “Moving into the park is a great strategic move for Jarrang. We’re growing as a company so it’s fantastic to be surrounded by other expanding businesses and to be able to take advantage of the facilities in the area.”
