A national tool supply chain has opened a new branch in Exmouth.

Toolstation has moved into the new Harpford Units at Liverton Business Park, with the creation of seven jobs. The company, which supplies tools, accessories, building equipment and materials to tradespeople and homeowners, has more than 250 branches nationwide.

The firm’s agent, Philip MacLauchlan, said: “Exmouth was on a list of target locations for the company and Liverton Business Park’s Harpford Units were able to provide exactly what we needed.

“It will also be mutually beneficial to be close to neighbours who operate in complementary businesses.”

Leigh Rix, head of property and land for business park owner Clinton Devon Estates, said: “Toolstation is the first to move into the new Harpford Units on Liverton Business Park and we are very pleased to have been able to support their business growth plan, which has created eight new jobs in Exmouth. There has been a huge amount of interest in the six Harpford Units since we completed construction at the end of last year and we have reserved all but one of them. We will be revealing who the new business tenants are over the coming weeks.”

Agent Andrew Hosking, of Stratton Creber Commercial, said: “To have secured such a major tenant as the first occupier in this new development is particularly pleasing.”
