HPH supports innovation in Wiltshire

An innovative automotive firm is the newest tenant at Leafield Industrial Estate, Corsham.

Carbon One, which specialises in developing composite wheels, has beaten off competition to take the lease for Unit 3 Leafield Industrial Estate in Corsham, a property newly refurbished by Bath-based commercial property firm HPH Ltd.

The unit will provides 20,331 square feet of space for the firm, which was launched in 2012.

Carbon One was founded by Chris Marsh and inventor Bevis Musk. Its main focus is developing carbon fibre wheels for the automotive, aerospace and military vehicle industries.

The move to larger premises will enable the company to develop new products and expand.

Lindsay Holdoway, managing director of HPH Ltd, said: “We had strong demand for this unit but we are glad that a local innovative company such as Carbon One has joined the mix of diverse businesses already at Leafield Industrial Estate.

“The demand for this unit illustrates the shortage of suitable industrial units in the area, which is forcing some businesses to look elsewhere. HPH Ltd is very pleased to be able to supply these much needed facilities to a company involved in technical innovation and support the engineering and manufacturing sector in Wiltshire.”
