CLEAR VISION OF ROAD AHEAD24/10/2016
National Windscreens has a clear vision of the road ahead after opening a new fitting centre in Birmingham, leading property company London & Cambridge Properties (LCP) has announced.
National Windscreens Ltd has agreed a 15-year lease for unit 4, Cheston Road, Aston, a 3,204 sq ft unit that is owned and managed by LCP, as it eyes expansion both in the city and throughout the UK.
This new fitting centre now includes an Advanced Driving Assistance Systems Centre – a one-stop shop for both windscreen replacement and calibration.
Twelve staff have moved to the new site from its previous office in Phoenix Park, Birmingham, and George Douglas, National Windscreens’ regional chairman, said there was sufficient capacity to enable the company, which has 108 fitting centres across the UK, to further expand over the next 12 months.
“We’ve invested a significant amount in getting our new, purpose-built centre ready and as part of a programme of continuous improvement we are delighted that the Birmingham opportunity has come to fruition,” he said.
“By relocating to this larger purpose built unit, we plan to build on our significant growth and create additional positions in the Midlands. It offers a perfect opportunity to enhance our service delivery in the city and at the same time provide more jobs for the region.”
Paula James, industrial lettings manager for LCP, said: “We’re very pleased to welcome to our Cheston Road site a well-regarded national company that is helping to create local jobs in Birmingham.”
Cheston Road Industrial Estate is a popular trade counter location, on the outskirts of the city centre. The four units have good access to the Aston Express Way (A38), which leads directly to junction 6 of the M6. Existing tenants include ToolFast ECA and Group HES Ltd.
