Altens Trade Park is a new build industrial development located in a prominent position on Souterhead Road in the heart of Altens, Aberdeen’s premier industrial location. The park offers excellent connectivity, with Aberdeen harbour being less than two miles north and the development also benefits from excellent access onto the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (AWPR). Major occupiers in close proximity include Shell, Weatherford, Wood Group, Maersk and Odfjell, with Ocean Safety, JAM Cabling Limited and North East Services Limited located within the scheme.

Dan Stalker of agent Ryden said:

“We are experiencing strong occupier interest for Altens Trade Park, which is testament to the quality industrial space that the development has to offer. We currently only have one unit left on the development which extends to 3,852 sq ft and the volume of recent enquiries has been positive. We believe this is an ideal unit for occupiers operating with the energy, marine, trade counter and storage sectors.”
