Office building at Doolittle Mill let to US cycling business
March 21, 2022
A US cycling business, which has launched a drive to increase brand awareness across Europe, has selected Bedfordshire as the location for its new UK office headquarters.
Covation Holdings Limited, which markets brands including Huffy, Royce Union and Buzz E-Bikes, has agreed a lease on 2,533 sq ft of self-contained, two-storey office space at Doolittle Mill, Ampthill, in Bedford.
Eamon Kennedy, executive partner and head of agency at Kirkby Diamond, said Covation Holdings was looking to relocate and had identified Doolittle Mill as the ideal base to support their business activities.
“Doolittle Mill is in a great location and Covation Holdings were very keen to relocate their offices specifically to that site. Working on behalf of the private investor landlord, we were able to negotiate the departure of the existing tenant and dealt with the dilapidations.
“A deal with Covation was agreed before the property came to market and there was no void on the building, which is a great result for our client. There have been reports that the office market is really struggling, but that isn’t necessarily the case across the board – the right quality accommodation in a good location will always be in demand.”
