Mazuli expands into new manufacturing facility


Leaders of Mazuli have announced that the bi-fold manufacturer is expanding into a new manufacturing facility on the edge of Leeds city centre. The expansion is expected to create approximately 30 new jobs in the near future, Mazuli’s representatives have said.

Westgate Link offers more than 19,000 ft2 of warehouse and office space on Wellington Road and was marketed jointly by Leeds property consultancy GV&Co and Savills, on behalf of Evans Property Group.

Mazuli currently employs 31 people and operates from a 9,000 ft2 unit on Gelderd Road, which its leaders are to continue to operate alongside the new site.

“The launch of Mazuli coincided with the Covid-19 pandemic, which helped to drive our early sales on the back of the building boom and the surge in home improvement projects that followed,” said David Wilkinson, one of Mazuli’s directors. “Although the market has now levelled out, we’re currently enjoying a period of continued growth as customers increasingly recognise the advantages that aluminium doors and windows offer over PVC-U and timber.

“Key benefits include being naturally strong, with a highly durable powder-coated finish which doesn’t fade. Crucially, they have a much longer lifespan.

“As a result, we had outgrown our existing premises and Westgate Link is the perfect unit to expand into as it gives us two sites within a mile of each other. Westgate Link also offers a superb frontage onto the Leeds Inner Ring Road, as well as a large, secure yard and loading area, which was another essential requirement.

“We’re currently transforming the building into one of the most advanced aluminium door and window manufacturing facilities in the UK, which will open in July. This will enable us to continue recruiting and double our workforce, as well as supporting our future growth plans beyond that.”

Jonathan Jacob, senior surveyor from GV and Co, added: “We generated a significant amount of interest in this property due to its highly prominent location, within easy walking distance of Leeds city centre, as well as its mix of high-quality warehouse and office space.

“Mazuli is a fast-growing and successful Leeds based business with an impressive product range, so we are very pleased to agree this deal with them. We look forward to seeing how the new space supports their ongoing expansion plans as they continue to build their market share.”
