When it comes to the property market in the UK, Rotherham in South Yorkshire has seen a boom in the level and quality of property being built over the last decade. With new hi-tech units completing this next month, this trend looks set to continue.

The Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP)

The new units, named R-Evolution, sit within the prestigious development at the AMP, conven-iently located just off junction 33 of the M1 motorway and between the key manufacturing areas of Rotherham and Sheffield, at the heart of the Sheffield City Region. The motorway infra-structure, comprehensive rail links from the City Region and proximity to the Humber Ports less than one hour away, make this an attractive location for manufacturing companies.

Home to Boeing, Rolls Royce, the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre and a host of other technology companies and institutes, the AMP plays a key role in enabling technology development in a number of industries across the globe.

So What is R-Evolution?

R-Evolution is a quality development of properties, consisting:
2x 11,000 sq ft quality industrial unit (can be combined)
1x 30,000 sq ft quality industrial unit (sold)

Each unit comprises:
- a steel portal framed building with glazed elevations
- own yard with turning circle and parking
- 7m eaves height
- 2x 5m electronic loading doors 
- modern offices


The Sheffield City Region Enterprise Zone (SCR EZ)
The R-Evolution properties sit within the SCR EZ, a government designated zone allowing tax incentives for qualifying businesses locating to the park. The SCR EZ website gives further information on eligibility.

If you are interested in further information on any of these properties, please contact the RiDO team.
