Demand for space is growing in Channel Commercial Park with the relocation of BLK BOX Fitness. BLK BOX Fitness specialises in the design, manufacture and delivery of strength and conditioning fitness equipment across a wide range of sectors to national and international markets.
Established in 2012 by MD Gregory Bradley, the company has worked with some of the leading sporting organisations throughout Ireland and the UK.
The move to its new facility in Titanic Quarter coincides with the completion of its latest project in Dubai, a state of the art private fitness club on the first floor of the world’s biggest Lamborghini showroom. At 100,000 sq ft, it is the largest and also one of the most luxurious private training fitness clubs in the world.

"Our business is about applying intelligence and attitude to the sports and fitness industry," said Mr Bradley.
"From the start, we wanted to position ourselves as distinctive to those other companies in the market and the key differentiator is through the way we apply our knowledge to the requirements of our clients.
"Moving to the Titanic Quarter’s Channel Commercial Park represents a significant milestone for the company. Our manufacturing output has increased dramatically and the showroom will be opening imminently.
“The surroundings and history linked to this excellent location all add to our presence here and now BLK BOX Fitness truly has a facility which matches our ambitions as a business.”
