One of the UK’s largest independent Mitsubishi forklift dealerships has moved into a new home, thanks to support from award-winning North East law firm, Mincoffs Solicitors.

A1 Industrial Trucks is the leading supplier of forklifts in the region, with more than 500 vehicles available for short or long term hire.

And the business, which is part of the Northern Bear Group, is settling into a new premises on Team Valley Industrial Estate following a move from Newburn Industrial Estate.

Mincoffs Solicitors’ real estate team advised on the terms of a 10 year lease of the space, which has had a full refit to create the perfect base for the expanding company.

Northern Bear’s Group Operations Director, Keith Soulsby, is confident the new premises will give the business space to grow.

“A1 Industrial Trucks was founded nearly forty years ago and in that time it has grown from a small service and repair business to a major supplier of materials handling equipment all over the UK,” he said.

“Like with any company, finding the right space to work in makes a huge difference and we couldn’t be happier with the service we received from Mincoffs in securing our new premises.

“The team were incredibly helpful throughout the whole process, answering any questions we had and making sure it went as smoothly as possible.”

Jordan Down, a Solicitor in Mincoffs real estate team, advised on the terms of the lease for the new space along with Partner and Head of Real Estate, Ryan Bannon.

“It was a pleasure to act on behalf of Keith and the team at A1 Industrial Trucks to help them find the right premises for the next stage of their journey and Team Valley Industrial Estate provides a fantastic home for the business,” said Jordan.

“This is another significant transaction we have handled for the Northern Bear Group and I am delighted to continue working with such an ambitious and successful family of companies.”
