Office provider brings the prospect of 200 new jobs

A new development which could bring 200 jobs to Warwick has opened its doors – and already attracted its first tenants.

Pure Offices, a leading national provider of serviced offices, has invested £3 million to
create a serviced office complex on Sackville Developments’ site at Tournament Fields.

The company operates 18 centres across the UK and hosts 53 businesses at its complex in Leamington.

Among the first visitors at the new building were Warwick and Leamington MP Chris White and Cllr Alan Cockburn, deputy leader of Warwickshire County Council, who has responsibility for economic development.

They were given a guided tour of the 17,600 sq ft building which was started less than a year ago.

Mr White said: “This is a really welcome investment by Pure Offices. I think it says a great deal about the local economy that the company has the confidence to make an investment of this size when they have a similar operation so close.

“Providing this sort of flexible accommodation is vital to help develop the type of successful companies which we have thriving here in our area.”

A handful of businesses have already moved in and the company is hoping the centre will be 30 per cent occupied for the New Year.

Roger Thomas, of Pure Offices, said the interest had been encouraging.

“We may well see some companies move from Leamington to here for reasons of personal convenience, but we have a strong demand for both centres and are very confident that we will attract maximum occupancy,” he said.

Paul Shanley, of Sackville Developments (Warwick), added: ““We are fielding a healthy number of enquiries and very confident about the future of the Tournament Fields.”
