OCS Group moves into Black Country offices next to M5

A modern Black Country office block has been let to facilities management specialist OCS Group for five years, assisted by Bond Wolfe.

The commercial property experts sealed the deal for 1B Swallowfield Court, near Birchley Island and close to Junction 2 of the M5 in Oldbury.

The refurbished two-storey building, which measures 2,617 sq ft and comes with ten car parking spaces, has a mixture of open plan and glass partitioned offices and meeting rooms, with kitchenettes on both floors.

James Mattin, chief executive of Bond Wolfe, said: “The OCS Group were quick to identify Swallowfield Court as ideal for their needs as it lies adjacent to Junction 2 of the M5.

“This letting further demonstrates that even in these testing times, there is strong demand for quality office accommodation located within easy access to the major road networks.

“We have continued to see demand for office space during lockdown from a variety of user types.”

Steve Caddell, OCS estates director, add: “OCS are delighted to acquire this site due to the quality of space and also central location, and were pleased the transaction was concluded quickly.”

The previous occupier was a company called CSCM Ltd, owned by landlord The Woolvin Partnership.

The IT services and cloud solutions provider has relocated to larger premises on the same site as part of its own expansion.

Jude Thompson, director of CSCM, said: “We have been based on this site in Oldbury for ten years now and it’s a fantastic central location, so when the opportunity came up to remain at Swallowfield Courtyard and purchase larger premises, it was a perfect opportunity for my business to get the space we needed to grow, without losing out on location.”

The landlord was represented by law firm Clark Brookes Turner Cary in West Bromwich, while the tenant was represented in-house.
