A large industrial and manufacturing site in Scarborough that was formerly home to historic printing company Pindar has been brought to market.
Leeds-based property consultancy Gent Visick (GV) is marketing the site, known as Pindar House, which is available to either buy or let.
The detached 132,163 sq ft property sits on a 5.58-acre plot within Eastfield Industrial Estate and also includes potential expansion land.
Pindar was one of Scarborough’s oldest companies, dating back to 1836, and employed 274 staff in 2020. It produced magazines and newspapers at the site for companies such as Daily Mail publisher DMG Media, Bauer Media, Guardian News as well as Reach.
The business formed part of the YM Group, which included three printing companies: York Mailing based in Elvington, YM Chantry in Wakefield and Pindar in Scarborough.
Three YM Group companies entered administration in March, appointing specialist corporate restructuring company FRP Advisory, with the majority of the 512 staff based across the three sites made redundant.
Paul Mack, director at GV, said: “This building provides a rare large-scale manufacturing and industrial facility, which has particular relevance not only for the local area but also the wider region. We very much hope to see this building flourish once again by either attracting a new business to the area or allowing an existing company to expand.”
