Metals firm moves in next door to make room for growth

A METAL distribution firm is to double the size of its premises in Leeds after taking over the building next door.

ASD metal services, located at Valley Farm Road, Stourton, secured a new 15-year lease on the adjoining 215,000 sq ft premises, which will give the company a combined space of 400,000 sq ft.

The company, a division of Klckner & Co multi-metal distribution, is multi-metals stockholder and distributor.

Chief executive Kaha Avaliani said: "The acquisition of the adjoining premises will enable us to centralise our stock-holding activities and increase efficiencies within our distribution chain.

"The new facility will also allow us to carry a greater range of stock items and through the installation of new machinery offer a new service to our existing and future customer base."

Industrial specialist Gent Visick advised landlord, Threadneedle Property Investments, on the deal while Edward Symmons acted on behalf of ASD metal services.
