Work is underway on Thainstone Business Park, in North East Scotland, as part of a joint venture between commercial property developers GSS Developments Ltd (GSS) and ANM Group Ltd.

The two firms have unveiled plans for this development near Inverurie, with the investment set to strengthen the local economy and position the area as a key business hub.  Set in a prime location just 15 miles northwest of Aberdeen City Centre, the 65-acre Business Park features a suite of six high-quality industrial units, from 1,500 sq ft.

The multi-let business units, due for completion by spring 2022, are suitable for cross-sector businesses including oil and gas, storage and distribution, and trade counter operations.

Ryden and CBRE, marketing agents for the development, are reporting strong interest in the units.

Paul Richardson, Industrial Agency Partner at Ryden, commented:

“Thainstone Business Park has close links with Aberdeen city and, while construction has only recently started on-site, we have a number of early interests.

"We are hopeful of announcing some lettings in the next few months demonstrating that occupiers are seeking fit-for-purpose, high specification premises within an attractive green setting.”

Thainstone Business Park has immediate access to the A96 Aberdeen to Inverness route. Its accessibility from all directions is assisted by the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (AWPR). The park is situated in close proximity to Blackburn and Inverurie and surrounding occupiers include; James Laing & Sons, Zenith Oilfield Technology, Hunter Construction, Paradigm Drilling Services, Alchemy Oilfield Services.

Tim Stevenson, GSS Developments Director, added:

“We are delighted to be assisting ANM Group in the development of Thainstone Business Park.

“The partnership showcases our commitment to providing occupiers with high-quality facilities in Aberdeenshire and we look forward to further opportunities to support ANM as the wider business park continues to develop.”

The collaboration between the two companies is a significant milestone for the North East commercial property market as they combine their market-leading services to support the economic development of the area.

ANM Group Ltd is one of the largest and most progressive member-owned businesses in the UK and is ranked in the Top 25 of UK co-operatives. 

Grant Rogerson, Chief Executive, ANM Group, said:

“We look forward to working alongside GSS in this exciting new development at Thainstone Business Park as we strengthen our continued commitment to the North East.

“The new business units provide an excellent location in an outstanding setting, but with easy access to the city. Our investment will pay dividends to the local economy thanks to job creation as we utilise a range of local contractors and tap into cross sector trades to complete the first phase of the project and beyond.”

In addition to the industrial business units, Thainstone Business Park is also offering a number of build to suit opportunities.
