One of the UK's largest trade suppliers Screwfix is coming to Weymouth.
The household name is the first business to set up shop in the new units at Link Park.
Currently the nearest branches are Poole and Yeovil.
Mickey Jones, the Chief Executive of DJ Property, the company developing Weymouth's newest business park, said he was delighted to welcome the UK's largest multi channel of trade tools, plumbing, electrical, bathrooms and kitchens.
Mickey commented: 'Screwfix is a household name and a godsend to tradesmen and DIY enthusiasts in South Dorset, as the nearest Screwfix branches are Poole or Yeovil. I'm proud to welcome Screwfix as the first business to Link Park and look forward to a long and happy relationship with them.'
He added: 'Screwfix has come to Link Park because DJ Property is a trusted, professional developer of commercial property that builds long-term relationships. We champion the local area. What's good for South Dorset is good for us.'
Screwfix have taken the first of six units in Phase One at Link Park and DJ Property will be able to confirm more tenants in the near future. Phase One is expected to be finished by late November 2012 and consists of six modern business units, each of approximately 4,120 square feet.
Ian Doyle, the Economic Regeneration Manager for Weymouth and Portland and West Dorset Councils, welcomed the news.
He said: 'It is fantastic news that one of the UK's largest trade suppliers has placed their confidence in Weymouth and Link Park. This is a clear sign that the significant private investment in South Dorset's infrastructure by DJ Property, is starting to bear fruit already. I am sure the great location and flexible offering for businesses on this development will prove extremely popular with other growing and successful businesses.'
