Full steam ahead at Station Works for Eddyfi Technologies
Barker Storey Matthews has acted for Eddyfi Technologies in the leasehold acquisition of new premises which sees the company move from Granta Park to the Station Works in nearby Linton, Cambridge.
Eddyfi was established in 2009 to develop eddy current array (ECA) technology, expanding from its initial beachhead markets—surface inspection in the nuclear and power generation industries—to other markets such as oil & gas, heavy industries, and aerospace. It is now active in surface and tubing inspection of ferrous and non-ferrous materials with eddy currents and other electromagnetic techniques.
The Québec-headquartered company has customers in more than 80 countries over six continents, with offices in France, the UK, the US, the UAE, and South Africa.
The Station Works is a recently re-furbished two storey 7,783 sq ft office/light industrial unit on the location of the original sidings when the village of Linton had its own railway station.
Ben Green of Barker Storey Matthews’ Cambridge office confirms that location was a key requirement in Eddyfi Technologies’ property briefing but adds: “All agents acknowledge the ongoing shortage of commercial space, especially to the south of the city.
“We were pleased to have identified and acquired such a suitable property for our client not too far away from its former base at Granta Park.”
Paul Jackson, Manager, Eddyfi Technologies said: “We feel very lucky to have found such an ideal property in reasonable proximity to our previous location and we appreciate the efforts of Barker Storey Matthews in carrying out a comprehensive search and then securing this property.”
The Station Works was a joint instruction by Juniper Real Estate and Cheffins who acted on behalf of the landlord.
