Latest letting at Doxford International paves the way for new jobs in Sunderland

A firm of business energy benchmarking experts is set to grow its headcount by 40 after signing a new lease at Sunderland’s Doxford International Business Park.

Troocost, which is approaching its third anniversary, has moved from its original base in central Newcastle following a letting by the Office Agency team at Naylors Gavin Black, and joint agent ABP Property Consultants.

The firm, which is on a mission to bring transparency back into brokering, has taken a five-year lease at the 8,900 sq.ft. Windsor House, to accommodate its ongoing growth.

Located close to the A19 for easy access to both Newcastle and Middlesbrough, Troocost’s new self-contained HQ, is a detached two-storey office owned by the British Israel World Federation.

The modern office unit benefits from the use of 46 dedicated car parking spaces, has a near neighbours including major offices of Barclays, Arriva and EE, with a David Lloyd Health Club, a family pub, and a children’s nursery. The Business Park is well served by public transport and other nearby facilities.

Chris Pearson, partner at Naylors Gavin Black said: “In such a challenging economic climate, it’s brilliant to see a young company grow, and this is positive news for Sunderland and for those looking for a new work opportunity.

“It’s been a pleasure to be involved and we look forward to seeing Troocost go from strength to strength in its new Wearside home.”

Malcolm Holmes, owner of ABP Property Consultants added: “Doxford Park remains a popular commercial location within the region and gaining an expanding and reputable brand like Troocost will only add to its standing as Sunderland’s most prestigious business park.”

Naylors Gavin Black was established in 2019 following the merger of Naylors and Gavin Black & Partners. The firm offers services across all commercial property sectors, including asset management, development consultancy, facilities management, lease advisory, building consultancy and agency.
