Wake Smith helps new HQ land purchase for Sheffield cleaning equipment supplier

Wake Smith Solicitors 25 September 2019

Wake Smith Solicitors has helped a Sheffield cleaning equipment supplier complete the land purchase for a new 37,000 sq ft headquarters.

Family-run business TL Killis and Sons Ltd, which is currently based on the Dorehouse Industrial Estate in Handsworth, Sheffield, has bought a vacant site nearby for a six-figure sum.

Plans for the development of the area, previously occupied by an Asda building which was demolished in the early part of the 2000s, were submitted late last year and approved by Sheffield planners.

The site will include warehouse storage, a workshop, training centre, offices, a showroom and a trade counter on the plot of land that has remained under utilised for nearly two decades.

Wake Smith completed the purchase of the land between Orgreave Place and Rotherham Road in Handsworth for company boss Tibor Killi Jnr which will allow expansion and the creation of over 40 jobs.

Owner Tibor said: “We currently operate existing premises in close proximity to the site purchased for storing and distributing domestic, commercial and industrial cleaning products and equipment.

“However, we are looking to expand our operations due to increased demand and now require larger warehouse and office facilities, which will also mean potential for more employment in the area as a result.

“This disused plot of land will be regenerated with the development retaining a significant amount of the existing woodland plus additional planting of trees and shrubs to help screen the new service yard and retain as much of the existing ecology of the site as possible.”

Killis have built our workforce up to around 50 staff at present and with current expansion plans, this will rise to more than 100 within the next two years.

TL Killis' branding livery of blue, grey and yellow will be adopted as the colour scheme for the building's exterior.

Laura Sanderson, solicitor in Wake Smith's commercial property division, said: "We were really pleased to be able to advise Tibor on the land purchase requirements.

"This is a long established Sheffield name and a real success story of an independent business expanding in the region and we wish them the best of luck for the future."

TL Killis has more than 55 years' experience of supplying cleaning machinery to the industry from domestic vacuum cleaners to industrial ride-on sweepers. The business also supplies hotels, schools, facilities management companies, hospitals and restaurants with cleaning products such as chemicals and paper disposables.
