The Great British Charcuterie Co is the latest business to move into Brighton Works, which is a striking warehouse and industrial development in Bevendean. The Brighton specialist food retailer has expanded its wholesale and online operations to become one of the country’s leading British cheese and charcuterie suppliers and needed a new base of operations to support its ambitions for growth.
There has been strong interest in renting units at Brighton Works, which has been extensively refurbished by developer Charter Land to a high standard, providing a total of seven warehouse and industrial units.
Charles Sandy, Director of Charter Land, said: ”We’ve had strong interest and are in the process of finalising a number of further lettings to a range of companies, some with a focus on food and hospitality.
”We’re delighted to welcome The Great British Charcuterie Co to Brighton Works and support the business with its plans for expansion and growth.
”Brighton Works has created an important central Brighton location for warehousing and light industrial businesses to answer the lack of good quality warehouse space in the city and demand from occupiers has been strong.
The Great British Charcuterie Co, was established in 2016 and was founded by father and son team Simon and Phil Bartley. Starting off as a retail deli based in Brighton Marina and now with a second site in Hove, they have been expanding their wholesale and online operations, working closely with small scale artisan producers all over the country with a focus on animal welfare and sustainability.
Phil Bartley, Managing Director, The Great British Charcuterie Co, said: ”When we heard about Brighton Works we knew this was the perfect place for us to base our growing businesss. Warehouse and industrial space in Brighton is in short supply so we’re very pleased we were able to find a home here with excellent transport links and that is so close to Brighton city centre.”
The Great British Charcuterie Co joins local produce distributor Sun Harvest, which moved into Brighton Works in June.
Brighton Works at The Hyde, Auckland Drive, previously housed Brighton Sheet Metal, which closed in 2018. The redevopment of the site brings much needed industrial space to the city, generating important local jobs, both for Bevendean and the wider Brighton area.
Located approximately three miles north east of the city centre near the A27, Lewes Road and Falmer Road, as well as Moulsecoomb Train Station, the site is well served by public transport. There is good parking and the units boast views of the South Downs. Units range in size from 1,750 sq ft to a combined total of 50,500 sq ft.
