Priority Space director Lee Buchanan said: "We're delighted to work with our letting agents CPP & Knight Frank and agree terms with Skanwear, one of the leading electrical PPE providers in the UK.

"We're also confident that we will be making further announcements in the very near future as interest regarding the other available units on Jubilee Park continues to come in."

It will also provide an excellent base for our staff and its central location is ideal for both clients and supply partners to reach."
