THE Brierley Hill base of builders’ merchant Sheffield Insulation Group (SIG) has been sold to a Lye-based property company.

Folkes Properties, based in Dudley Road, Lye, has bought the 3.9-acre site on Pedmore Road, Brierley Hill, from JCAM Property, for an undisclosed sum.

The property includes a 44,843 sq ft warehouse, plus a smaller warehouse of 5,593 sq ft, both let to SIG on a 10-year lease.

JCAM Property, which was advised by MK2 Real Estate and Cushman & Wakefield, acquired the site in 2020 and agreed a new lease with SIG.

Mark Rooke, director at MK2, said: “We’re pleased to have completed the sale of this prominent roadside site on behalf of JCAM Property.

"The property’s investment fundamentals – location, low passing rent, strong covenant and asset management opportunities – meant we were confident in transacting this property, which we managed to do in just two months.”

Folkes Properties was advised by Skylark Real Estate.
