Aircraft interior specialist moves to purpose-built new premises as global business soars
Aircraft interior specialist Percival Aviation is to expand into purpose-built, multi-million-pound new premises in a move secured by Marick Real Estate Ltd.
Percival Aviation, which specialises in the design, production and maintenance of aircraft interiors and equipment, is undergoing major growth as expands to support customers around the world including British Airways, Emirates, and easyJet.
The company will move a short distance from its current premises in Barnes Wallis Road to take a 40,000 sq ft detached unit to be built in Cartwright Drive, Segensworth.
Construction will begin next month on the unit, just off Junction 9 of the M27, and will be carried out to the new occupier’s precise specifications.
Mike Forster, Director, said: “Securing these new premises ensures that a hugely successful, independently-owned, locally-owned company with a worldwide reputation can remain in the region as it grows, with all the benefits that brings to the economy here.”
“The Marick team were hands on throughout the design process and worked closely with Percival’s management team to arrive at the ideal building solution.”
“The site acquisition was complex, as we had to work with Hampshire County Council in restructuring the ground lease, and deal with relocating reptiles, all while keeping the transaction confidential.”
The new unit is in a thriving area with neighbouring occupiers including Estee Lauder and Royal Mail. The land at Segensworth was secured by Marick Real Estate from Raymarine, which had deemed it surplus to requirements.
