INTERNATIONAL oil and gas technical consultancy and technology manufacturer Axiom Process Management is today confirmed as the latest occupier at ABZ Business Park, Aberdeen.
Axiom Process Ltd has purchased 1 International View at ABZ
Axiom, which delivers solids control technology to the exploration and production industry, is investing in the purchase of 1 International View at ABZ, a 16,000sq.ft. warehouse and office facility with associated yard.
ABZ Development Ltd, the family firm behind the business park adjacent to Aberdeen International Airport, developed the premises at 1 International View as a speculative property for the open market, with construction having recently been completed.
Paul Stevenson, director of ABZ Development Ltd, says: "We invested in the development of 1 International View in response to huge demand from the marketplace – ABZ is delivering significant commercial property land as the energy sector activity continues to be buoyant.
"Local contractor MTM Construction has delivered the facility on schedule and we are pleased to welcome Axiom to the park, in a move which sees them relocate from nearby premises to a modern, fit-for-purpose facility with expansion potential."
Marshall Bailey Chairman of Axiom said: “Axiom’s investment will expand the company’s production capacity, provide space for extension of our research and development functions and add a purpose-built training facility for customer and company personnel."
ABZ Business Park is zoned for 750,000 square feet of vital commercial, industrial and hotel development land for Aberdeen City and Shire.
Overall investment in ABZ is expected in the region of £100m for the construction phase alone – with the potential for up to 2,000 jobs to be created when units onsite are fully-occupied.
Proposals have already been confirmed which would see ABZ's footprint extended with a second phase of development, worth a further £30million and covering an additional 20 acres of land.
The outline plan for ABZ phase two – on land south of Wellheads Drive directly opposite the main park – will include land zoned for class 4, 5 and 6 use focussed on workshop, warehouse and open-storage facilities.
