A telecommunications company has expanded into new offices in Coventry to allow for future growth.
BT Local Business, represented by Christal Communications, has moved from a rented, serviced office in the city to its own headquarters at Oak Court, Prologis Park. The company, which has been based in the city for 13 years, was assisted in its move by commercial property consultants D&P Holt.
BT Local Business employs 22 staff and provides telecommunications services to a range of businesses and organisations across the region, backed by BT at a national level. Its new 2,632 sq ft unit provides a much more modern setting for staff and is located just a short distance from junction three of the M6.
Neil Hoyle, a Director with BT Local Business, said “We had been at our previous location for 12 years and it was the right time for the company to invest and purchase its own property. We want to grow our customer base and expand the team, so this new base is absolutely ideal for our requirements. D&P Holt helped to make the transition very smooth – even to the point where they helped source tradespeople and professional service businesses to assist with the move.”
Rupert Gillitt, Director of D&P Holt, said Prologis Park was a major success story for the city. He said “We are very pleased to welcome BT Local Business to Oak Court. As well as acting as selling agents there on behalf of ADL Ventures, we are also the managing agents for the development. It’s a perfect place for BT Local Business to expand and that’s good news for the local economy. Oak Court is part of the wider Prologis Park development which has really achieved the aim of regenerating that area of the city, which is what it set out to do many years ago.”
Only one unit remains available at Oak Court. The 1,865 sq ft unit is on the market for sale or to let and is being jointly marketed by D&P Holt and AP Commercial. For more information, call Rupert Gillitt on 024 7655 5180.
