by Julia Ford, which supplies alloy wheel repairs to vehicles, has been a tenant within the Towngate portfolio since April 2014 when it signed a five-year lease on Units C2 and C3 in the Copley Hill Trading Estate in Leeds. The company set up a facility within the 7,772 sq ft units to cater for both customers to the site and off-site mobile repairs to vehicles.  

Within two years, had outgrown the units and approached Towngate to see if we could assist with expansion plans. We agreed to a surrender of the units and relocated them to the Towngate-owned Unit D Turnkey Park in Royds Lane, Leeds, which is 18,209 sq ft in size. In 2018, the company required another relocation. Towngate supported a move to the Unit 4C Olympia Trading Estate, which is slightly smaller than the Turnkey Park property but the space works better for the business’ needs.

Dan Besau, owner of, stated: “We have now grown from 15 members of staff in 2014 – when we signed our first lease with Towngate at Copley Hill – to 50 in 2018. We have a fantastic relationship with the Towngate team, all of whom have supported us every step of the way.”
