As Warrington based RAM Properties celebrates its silver anniversary, research co-sponsored by the firm shows that the value of investment deals in the town last year was almost triple that of the previous year , with 34 transactions totalling £400 million compared to £140 million in 2013.
With 34 recorded deals, individual transactions totalled £300 million, while portfolio acquisitions accounted for an additional £100 million.
The Warrington Annual Property Review was commissioned by Warrington & Co. The research was compiled by BE Group and co-sponsored by Muse Developments, RAM Properties, ISG and Omega Warrington and RAM Properties.
Ram Properties, which has been in business since 1990, is based in Tanners Lane Warrington and specialises in providing quality rental office space within the Warrington and Widnes area.
Back in 1986, Robert A McLaughlin converted a derelict property into offices and showrooms to house his fledgling computer business. So successful was this first fit-out that another occupier quickly wanted to lease the space.
After five years of growth and expansion Robert went on to successfully purchase and redevelop further buildings and so RAM properties was born.
RAM Properties now has over 100,000 sq. ft. of quality office space available within the Warrington and Widnes area including The Boultings, Dallam Court, Ashley House, Ribban Court and Tannery Court office developments and also the 2.1 acre John Street redevelopment opportunity.
The site has planning for 284 apartments and 6,000 sq. ft. of retail space over 6 storeys and is located immediately next door to Warrington Central railway station and opposite Warrington Borough Council’s £190 million ‘Stadium Quarter Scheme’.
RAM’s Managing Director-Bob McLaughlin said: “Over the past 25 years RAM Properties has built up a trusted reputation for providing prestige office space at reasonable rates that meet all of the requirements for modern businesses.
“We’ve worked hard to build up and keep a loyal client base, ranging from small start-ups to multi-nationals and government institutions.
On this, our silver anniversary, we are now looking forward to the next 25 years of business with my two sons Andy and Richard taking over at the helm.“
