“We thought Lakeside Court was ideally suited.”

Schuchmann’s parent company in Germany has been manufacturing and selling rehabilitation aids for children, teenagers and adults for more than 30 years.

It is its second generation as a family business.

Richard Jones director, at Barker Storey Matthews, which handled the lease, said: “Schuchmann strengthens our line up at Lakeside Court.

“Schuchmann’s facility compliments other showroom/trade counter occupiers already on the site including Dun-Bri, Capital Hair, Vanquish Cars and Victorian Sliders.”
