Widely recognised as one of Kent’s major business locations now extending to over 250 acres with in excess of 2 million sq ft of accommodation to-date, Trenport Investments have announced the completion of the roads & service infrastructure for the 30 acre 5th Phase, Eurolink East Five.

At a tree planting ceremony last Friday, 29th June, carried out by Gordon Henderson MP & Mike Cosgrove, Swale Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Trenport’s MD, Richard Hall, reported that various companies had already committed to relocating to the latest 5th Phase, resulting in all but 7 acres of the 30 acres of development land being taken up, with interest in the remaining sites.

Trenport made a promise at the “Swale’s Means Business” conference in 2014 to build this high-quality scheme.

Richard Hall, Trenport’s Managing Director said:

“I am delighted to announce that Trenport has fulfilled that promise and over 300 people will be working at Eurolink 5 within the next 12 months.

“Trenport, with our joint venture partner, F T Holt, are appreciative of Swale Borough Council’s support in delivering this project.

“Trenport welcomes the new owners: Pickering, Salvatori, Cook and Doka who have chosen to invest at Eurolink 5, where only 2 plots remain.

“Trenport very much hopes to have the opportunity to work with Swale in the future and will, as usual, deliver what we promise.”

Gordon Henderson MP commented:

“One of my highest priorities as Member of Parliament is to reduce unemployment in our area by encouraging the creation of jobs in our area. Succeeding in that ambition depends on a partnership between businesses and government at both local and national level.

“That’s why I welcome the involvement of Trenport in my constituency. By investing so heavily in the infrastructure on the Eurolink they have made the business park an attractive place into which new businesses can locate and existing businesses can expand.

“The launch of Eurolink Phase Five demonstrates yet again the tremendous potential of Sittingbourne and Sheppey and I very much look forward to working with Trenport and Swale Borough Council to start planning for future employment growth.”

Cllr Mike Cosgrove, Cabinet Member for Regeneration at the Council, said:

“We are delighted that Eurolink continues to attract new investment into the Borough, which shows we are open for business and provides the space for local companies to grow.

“Eurolink is now recognised as one of Kent’s premier business locations and the success of Eurolink East 5 justifies its deserved reputation.”

Other guests included Swale Borough Council’s Chief Executive, Mark Radford, along with Head of Economy and Community Services, Charlotte Hudson, together with senior representatives of the companies that have already committed to relocating to Eurolink.

• The Salvatori Group have already completed and are operating a new Distribution Facility on a 3 acre site
• Pickering Plant are shortly to commence construction of a new S E Regional Depot on a 5 acre site
• Doka’s proposals are for a new UK Headquarters & Production Facility on a 7 acre site and
• Cooks have chosen Eurolink Five to accommodate the company’s current & future major expansion requirements.
