National Healthcare operator opens in Leazes Park

Newcastle, 26th September 2011- Salts Healthcare, a leading manufacturer and supplier of healthcare products, has signed up to 2,000sqft of office space on Leazes Park Road in Newcastle city centre.

Jones Lang LaSalle’s agency department acquired the offices on behalf of Salts Healthcare and its building consultancy team has fitted out the property to suit their specific needs.

The company, which has offices in the UK and Ireland, had been looking to expand into the North East but couldn’t find anywhere suitable in the region.

Simon Taylor, Associate Director in Jones Lang LaSalle's Newcastle office, said: “We were delighted to act on behalf of Salts in respect of their Newcastle acquisition. We established the key criteria of their requirement and identified a number of suitable options. Once Leazes Park Road was selected we negotiated lease terms and tenant incentives on behalf of Salts and facilitated a swift programme to meet their timescales.”

James Dixon, Senior Building Surveyor at Jones Lang LaSalle, added: “Meeting the requirements and expectations of Salts in their Newcastle fit-out within a short time frame was an exciting challenge. We are well versed in designing and managing office refurbishments and we drew on this knowledge to ensure the works were completed on time, minimising stress on the client.”

Jo Colebrook of Salts Healthcare concluded: “Having Jones Lang LaSalle working on our behalf in Newcastle, firstly to find the most suitable property for our needs and then ensuring it was developed to meet them has been a first class experience for us.  Their commitment to meeting our exacting needs and standards has certainly meant less work for me personally and we now have just the facility we needed in order to grow our business in the North East.”
