Andrews Sykes complete move to new headquarters
After more than five decades of our head office being sited in Wolverhampton, the company is delighted to have moved into state-of-the-art premises in St. David’s Court. The relocation allows us to retain our deeply ingrained links with the city centre while benefitting from some of the most sought-after offices available in the area.
We now have more than 8,000 square feet of open plan work space designed to our exact requirements, with the final touches added just days before our arrival. The move underlines our unwavering desire to improve all factions of the business, including the facilities in which our staff are based.
It was of the utmost importance to us that we kept our head office in Wolverhampton not only for sentimental reasons, but also to guarantee our local employees would avoid the upheaval a long-distance transfer might have caused.
St. David’s Court is situated just a stone’s throw from the city’s main railway station while surrounding roads provide greater accessibility to both employees and visitors. Its prominent position opposite the Ring Road provides a multitude of routes via the M6 and M54, and these are supplemented by a large bus terminus and neighbouring tramline.
The offices themselves are equipped with a full range of modern essentials including a manned security team that monitor the building 24 hours a day. There has been substantial investment in cutting-edge IT equipment as well as a complex disaster recovery programme that provides better protection to the organisation’s internal system.
There are even fitted car-charging points in the vicinity which ensure our fleet of electric-petrol hybrid vehicles are ready for immediate use. This measure once again highlights our commitment to operating in an environmentally-sensitive manner, and is something we are keen continue.
We believe the move marks an extremely positive step and provides us with a fantastic base to further develop going forward.
Chief Financial Officer Andy Phillips, who is based in Wolverhampton, said: “Thanks must go to all concerned in ensuring the successful move to our new offices went without a hitch; we closed for business at 5pm on Friday 5th June and opened again the following Monday at 8am having relocated all of our head office functions and people.
“We look forward to putting the finishing touches to the offices over the coming weeks and to providing a first class service to our customers and staff thereafter from a fully renovated modern environment.”
