A company specialising in tool and equipment hire is moving to Uckfield.
HSS Hire already has 265 branches around the UK, including stores at Brighton, Crawley, Haywards Heath and Eastbourne. Now it is to open at 1 The Enterprise Centre, Bell Lane.
The letting has been arranged by commercial agents Lawson Commercial, after the successful sale of the building to investors.
Partner Chris Lawson said: “Following the loss a few years ago of not only Gamble Jarvis but also South Coast Tool Hire there has been a gap in the market for a company specialising in small tool hire and I am sure HSS will be successful in Uckfield.
“They have taken this unit which is the end of terrace unit almost opposite Screwfix and, in an area already known for supplying building services, close to Travis Perkins, Alsford Timber and The Store Department.”
Mr Lawson said HSS had signed a new lease following refurbishment of the unit which included new doors and windows and repainting of the cladding.
He added: “They are currently fitting out the unit and hope to be open for trading in a few weeks time.”
