Located in a prominent position close to several major motorways in the North West of England, St Helens is a large town with a rich industrial heritage.
A town embedded in the industrial revolution, St Helens was built upon the coal mining industry and latterly became the UK’s leading manufacturing centre for the production of sheet glass.
A commitment to regeneration in St Helens was declared with the following quote taken from the “St Helens 150” programme, made in early 2018; “St Helens, on the whole, is on the cusp of a series of major developments in the years ahead that are set to transform the economic prospects of the borough.”
With the need for industrial spaces likely to be essential, NSM have moved to acquire a series of top quality commercial units to let in and around the town.
As touched upon, above, St Helens enjoys a highly favourable location from a logistical perspective. Sitting directly between the chief North Western cities of Liverpool & Manchester, the town is enclosed by the M57, M58, M62 & M6 motorways.
Aside from the excellent road network, both Liverpool & Manchester international airports are obviously very close to hand, meaning that St Helens is ideally placed for domestic and international trade.
There has been much investment, over recent years, in developing St Helens as an arts and culture centre and in embracing the town’s industrial heritage. The “Heart of Glass” was one such project developed to celebrate the town’s 150th anniversary in 2018.
The famous Knowsley Safari Park is a nearby attraction, which draws in visitors from all over the UK throughout the year.
From a sporting perspective St Helens rugby league club has long been one of the leading clubs in the UK, and enjoys a huge following from the local population.
The glass manufacturing industry is still very active in St Helens, with industry giants Pilkington Glass still employing many people in the town.
Pilkington are also one of the major players in a £50 million scheme created in conjunction with nearby universities, and other major firms, which aims to put the UK at the forefront of global glass manufacturing.
Such schemes, coupled with the many regeneration projects make St Helens a very attractive location for companies wishing to rent industrial premises in the North West of England.
NSM are able to offer a wide portfolio of commercial units of varying sizes. From the single storey, brick built units close to the centre of the town at Chalon Way, to the larger mix of office space and industrial units at Mere Grange, there is something to suit all needs.
Our units offer high specification design buildings, with quality features and secure outdoor spaces.
