Northern Resin Flooring has expanded into bigger premises in North Tyneside.

The specialists in commercial, industrial, and domestic resin floor installations have taken over the lease on a 6,991sqft factory in Shiremoor, which was previously occupied by Shiremoor International Engineering.

Commercial property specialists HTA Real Estate arranged the letting on Algernon Industrial Estate.

The new premises comprise a semi-detached manufacturing and warehouse building along with offices and a shared yard. There is also a mezzanine storage area and craneage facilities.

The firm will now establish a showroom at the site, which will be open to public and commercial clients.

Northern Resin Flooring founder, Carl Birkenshaw, said: “Due to our growth, we needed bigger premises and the Algernon Industrial Estate was the ideal location for us.

“The nature of our business means we had a number of requirements for our new property and the site was a great match.

“We were looking for a site that was easily accessible where we had space to create a new showroom to show off our products. The great position of the factory, close to the A19 and the Coast Road, also means it has the good transport links we were looking for.”

Russell Taylor from Newcastle-based HTA Real Estate added: “We were instructed by G4S Risk Management to find a suitable new tenant for the site.

“The property has excellent facilities and connectivity and will provide Northern Resin Flooring with further room for growth. The company’s expansion and need for larger premises is a strong signal of the economic recovery and the returning confidence in the region.”

Northern Resin Flooring operates across Tyne and Wear, Cumbria and Teesside. The group is currently working on a major commercial flooring contract with Northgate Hospital in Morpeth and also provides driveway installation services for domestic customers.
