Two buildings formerly occupied by the Waremoss Group on the Bellbrook Estate, Uckfield, have been sold.
They are on a one-acre site at 6A/B Bolton Close, some 20,000 sq ft in total, and the freehold was sold at close to the asking price of £1.7 million, according to commercial agents Lawson Commercial.
The buildings, which are behind Crowson House, have been bought, for future expansion, by a Sussex business which specialises in the manufacture of household cleaning products.
The Waremoss Group moved to new larger headquarters a short distance away at Westminster House.
Chris Lawson, a partner in Lawson Commercial, which handled the sale, said: “It is welcome to see a new business moving into the Wealden area, and shows that there is still good, strong, demand for quality industrial space even during the pandemic, and various lockdowns.
“This area is known for having a strong entrepreneurial spirit and several local businesses have risen to the challenges of this year and provided vital services in these difficult times.
“Lawson Commercial have been extremely busy all year on the industrial front as the demand for units has not dropped and indeed if anything has increased.
“We are now short of units to offer to many waiting applicants and would be pleased to hear from anyone with space available.”
Lawson Commercial remains open under current Government guidelines.
