Stationery products company John Dickinson is to take a new headquarters and national distribution centre at Wrenbridge’s Kings Warren site in Newmarket.
Following a strategic review, John Dickinson, known for its Basildon Bond and Oxford Black ‘n Red brands and currently headquartered at Sawston, Cambridge, identified Wrenbridge’s Kings Warren site as the preferred location to meet its requirements and best serve customer needs.
Wrenbridge’s development of the 108,000 sq ft building which will provide a headquarter office suite and warehouse to the company is now nearing completion.
Kings Warren Business Park, situated on the outskirts of Newmarket, is a joint venture with the landowner. The need for a new roundabout and improved infrastructure at the business park was established following Wrenbridge’s contract to develop the new headquarters.
Ben Coles of Wrenbridge said: “The new access and infrastructure basically kick-starts the whole business park. With John Dickinson acting as the anchor tenant and enabling the creation of the road network for the park, it provides a real opportunity to attract local and national occupiers over the course of the next twelve months.”
Philip Beer, managing director of John Dickinson said: “We are delighted the new access to the business park is opening ahead of schedule and with the opening of our new warehouse facility now very close, we are actively in the process of seeking staff from the surrounding area”.
Savills and Redmayne Arnold & Harris are joint letting agents.
