Drainage specialists take on new premises

A drainage specialist who became his own boss after 12 to 14 years in the industry has moved into his first premises.

Scott Overton, founder of start-up business Freeflow Drainage Ltd, has taken an 1,840 ft² unit at Morris Property’s Centurion Park in Shrewsbury. It is one of 24 new units built as part of a £3.5m redevelopment scheme.

Scott said: “I felt the time was right to branch out on my own. I needed an operational base and Centurion Park was ideal. It’s in a great location for the areas I serve and will also give me room to grow. I acted as soon as I could as the new units were being quickly snapped up. I have friends with businesses on the older part of the site, so I know it works well.”

Freeflow Drainage specialises in waste disposal and drainage services in and around Shrewsbury, Shropshire, Cheshire, the West Midlands and mid Wales. It carries out work in the domestic, commercial, industrial and agricultural sectors, from emptying tanks to clearing blocked drains and CCTV drain surveying.

Only seven of the new units remain available at Centurion Park with work due to be completed in early January 2020.

Letting agent Toby Shaw, at Towler Shaw Roberts, said: “The new units appeal to existing tenants and other businesses looking for quality modern units in a popular location with flexible leasing and affordable quality. There has been keen interest in the development.”

The units are in six buildings and range in size from 1,238 ft² to 2,508 ft² with internal office accommodation and ample customer and staff parking. The estate is monitored by CCTV and has easy access to the A5 Shrewsbury bypass, A49 and M54 motorway.

Morris Property has owned and managed Centurion Park on Kendal Road since 2002. It demolished several older buildings to make way for the new development. The site’s diverse mix of businesses includes trade counters, workshops and storage units.
