Worcestershire commercial property consultancy and Chartered Surveyors GJS Dillon has helped an award-winning Malvern technology company double the size of its business premises and a Worcester technology company relocate to larger premises on Malvern’s leading business park.

Acting on behalf of a private landlord, Mike Pritchard, commercial negotiator at GJS Dillon, let two industrial warehouse buildings at Beauchamp Business Centre, Enigma Business Park, Malvern, WR14 1GL; one to Metrasens, a world leading supplier of magnetic detection systems, and one to PACS Services Limited, a manufacturer of electrical safety systems.

Already a tenant of Unit 8, Beauchamp Business Centre, Metrasens has taken a new three year lease on Unit 6, a 2,750 sq ft building, while PACS Systems has taken a new five year lease on the 1,415 sq ft Unit 13.

Metrasens has adapted its innovative ferro-magnetic detection technology to supply a range of  security scanners for use in prisons, airports, concert and sports venues, and other high security areas, as well as for safety products to provide additional protection before MRI scans.

The company presently exports to more than 40 countries and was awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for Innovation in 2018 and for International Trade in 2017.

Established in 2006, PACS Systems manufactures patented safety systems designed to safely disconnect electrical supplies when lampposts, traffic lights, illuminated signs and other street furniture are hit by vehicles.

“We are delighted to help two technology companies grow in Malvern on a sought after business park,” said Mike Pritchard.  “Many technology businesses want to join the cluster of similar businesses already located in and around the town.
