Buko Business Centre - In Partnership with the Business Community

Tuesday 29 September 2015


The Business Centre since its initial conception in 2007 has provided an ideal opportunity for local businesses to expand/contract depending on their space requirements. The flexible approach adopted by the Centre Management and the range of space available, from 7,700 sq. ft. to 67,000 sq. ft. ensures that the vast majority of ongoing requirements can be satisfied.

During the course of the last year the Centre has maintained a focus on working with local businesses in assisting with their growth plans and during the course of 2015 this strategy has continued to be successful with further lettings achieved within the Centre.

Buko is pleased to welcome Textile Care Supplies Ltd, who have recently relocated to Unit 9, providing some 14,000 sq. ft. or thereby. The Unit allowed the business to stay within the immediate locality relocating from their previous base at Whitehill Industrial Estate. In addition to the enhanced space availability, the Company enjoys the benefit of the 24 hour security and the hands on management approach the Business Centre provides. Dennis Jack, MD of Textile Care Supplies Ltd commented; “The approach adopted by Tilly Masterton was ideal and the flexibility in terms of the lease structure going forward ensured that I could match my growth aspirations while still ensuring expenditure at a cost effective level. We are delighted with the space which will ensure that we can continue to grow the business in the forthcoming years”.

John Gavin, Investment Director at Tilly commented; “We were delighted to encourage another locally based company to relocate to the Centre. This has been our primary target over the course of last year and it is satisfying when we can meet with local company expectations. We are therefore delighted to welcome Textile Care Supplies, who join other local companies who have recently relocated, including Kingdom Timber and MH Engineering”.

The Business Centre has been in regular contact with Business Gateway Fife, ensuring that they are aware of the flexibility and space availability. Brian Blackburn, Managing Director, Business Gateway Fife commented -

“I have been very impressed with the quality of the space available and the approach adopted by the Business Centre. It is great to see local companies flourishing and have the support within the immediate locality to relocate their business.

"In order to ensure that we can continue to provide good quality, flexible space within the immediate locality and assist in terms of local company relocations, it is critical to work hand in hand with the private sector. The range of space that Buko provides is also of considerable assistance and ensures that we can point businesses in the right direction should industrial and/or office space be an issue for the respective companies”.

Buko Business Centre is centrally situated within Fife and within the well-established Southfield Industrial Estate, Glenrothes, with excellent access to the Bankhead roundabout and the principal dual carriageway system. The Business Centre while providing a range of business units, can also accommodate a single occupier of up to 132,000 sq. ft. Letting agent, Neil McAllister (Rydens) added; “The proactive and onsite management ensures that the Business Centre is in good condition and available for immediate occupation. The space currently on offer can provide ideal accommodation for small to medium sized business who are looking to either grow their business or relocate from properties which are now not fit for purpose”.

John Gavin added; “We remain confident that our approach in working in partnership with Business Gateway Fife, Fife Council Economic Development and local businesses will find favour with the community generally – our approach and ability to move quickly ensures that we can have companies in occupation within 24 hours as and when necessary”.

Buko Business Centre provides 250,000 sq ft of manufacturing and storage facilities together with 12,500 sq. ft. of offices.  For further details please contact Andrew Reilly (Andrew Reilly Associates Ltd) – 0131 229 9558 - or Neil McAllister (Rydens) – 0131 225 6612.
