Roofing specialist expands into Ipswich Road, Cardiff warehouse

Roofing supplies distributor Rinus Roofing has moved its Roof Hub depot in Cardiff to larger new premises in Ipswich Road.

The company has 24 depots nationwide and provides a ‘one-stop’ service to trade and general public customers.  It has taken a 10 year lease on the 7,064 sq ft Unit 5 in Ipswich Road at an annual rental of £40,000. Landlord Hunterville was represented by property consultancy Knight Frank, while Rinus was advised by GRM Property Consultants.

Craig Harcombe, southern regional manager for Rinus Roofing, said: “We have outgrown our premises in Bridge Road and looked at a number of larger alternatives but the Ipswich Road unit give us a larger, better option in a good location, with plenty of space for future expansion.

“We managed our operations carefully throughout the Covid-19 lockdown and are now fantastically busy.  We will be looking to recruit more people soon.”

Neil Francis, partner at Knight Frank in Cardiff, said: “Ipswich Road runs parallel to Newport Road, the primary access route from east of Cardiff city centre, so provides a great location for Rinus Roofing.  Unit 5 is a large trade counter premises with two-storey office block so it fitted the fast-growing company’s requirements perfectly.”
