Newport-based electrical systems integrator IAC Ltd has relocated part of its operations to Maesglas Industrial Estate in the city in one of two new deals brokered by property consultancy JLL.

The company has moved its contract PCB manufacturing business, IAC Electronic Manufacturing Services, to the 3,000 sq ft unit from Newport city centre.

PCBs or printed circuit boards are used in almost all electronic devices from computers and laptops, to televisions and mobile phones.

A second letting on the same site has seen TJ Inspirations increase the size of its premises and move within the estate to a larger unit.

Refurbishment work will now take place on units 19 & 19A which are 2,140 sq ft each and will return to the market once works are complete in autumn 2018.

IAC Ltd, part of IAC Group, has its main manufacturing facility in Queensway Meadows, Newport, employing more than 65 people. The company has taken space at unit 9 at Maesglas to relocate its electronic manufacturing services (EMS) business from its former home in Mill Street, Newport, which has been sold to property developer Garrison Barclay. The building is now set to become modern offices, depending on the outcome of a planning application lodged with Newport City Council.

JLL is the sole letting agent for the industrial estate and also manages the site, which is owned by Arundel House Estates Ltd.

Heather Lawrence, senior surveyor at JLL in Cardiff, said: "This estate has proved to be extremely popular with a wide range of industrial occupiers. The units are attractively designed, well located and the fact they have all undergone refurbishment has made them particularly appealing.

"There is already a high level of interest in the remaining units so don't expect them to be available for long.

"The estate is in a highly sought-after location for trade counter operators due to its excellent transport links to the M4 and offers functional unit design as well as attractive surroundings."

Other occupiers at Maesglas Industrial Estate include Screwfix, Parcelforce, Howdens Joinery and SIG plc.
