Mazuli, a fast-growing manufacturer and trade supplier of aluminium bifold doors, sliding doors and windows, is expanding into a new state of the art manufacturing facility on the edge of Leeds city centre. The expansion will create approximately 30 new jobs in the near future.
Westgate Link offers more than 19,000 sq ft 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.
Founded in 2020, Mazuli has quickly grown into a leading manufacturer and supplier of aluminium bifold doors and sliding doors, as well as aluminium windows, which it supplies exclusively to tradespeople and construction firms throughout the UK. The company also makes aluminium single residential doors and French doors, along with a range of aluminium gable ends.
The company currently employs 31 people and operates from a 9,000 sq ft unit on Gelderd Road, which it will continue to operate alongside the new site.
David Wilkinson, a director from Mazuli, said: “The launch of Mazuli coincided with the pandemic which helped to drive our early sales on the back of the building boom and the surge in home improvement projects that followed.
“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 uPVC and timber. Key benefits include being naturally strong with a highly durable powder coated finish, which doesn’t fade, and 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 during 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&Co, said: “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.”
