New jobs will soon be heading to Lanarkshire on the back of one of the UK’s largest privately owned logistics companies taking on additional offices to accommodate growth.
Europa Worldwide is developing its operations at Maxim Park after signing up to an additional 1,776 sq. ft. of space as part of a 3-year deal that will double current capacity. The firm has also extended the lease on its existing space for a further three years.
The move will see staff numbers rise to 25 people over the next 12 months as the firm invests in its infrastructure to support current workforce requirements and recruit additional resources to meet strong UK and international demand for its services.
Domestic hot water and heating boiler manufacturer Vaillant has also committed to developing its operations at Maxim Park, taking a new 10-year lease on its current 9,617 sq. ft. of workspace at Maxim 1.
The quality of office space at Maxim Park continues to be attractive for businesses looking to invest in growth, said Nicola Laidlaw-Rolph, head of property and procurement at Europa.
She said: “We are seeing strong demand for our services which is driving growth; so we need to invest in extra space at Maxim Park. The site is a great location for us, meeting our needs as a dynamic business in a competitive sector for office space of the highest standard supported by great onsite services and facilities. We really look forward to seeing the business continue to go from strength-to-strength on the back of our workspace investment.”
Hannah Lowe, surveyor at CBRE, which together with Knight Frank are joint letting agents for Maxim Park, said: “With top-quality facilities, Maxim Park is ideal for a wide range of organisations gearing up for growth and investing in infrastructure to support their ambitions. I’m sure that Europa will quickly benefit from its additional space and take advantage of the significant benefits and attractions the park offers.”
Eurocentral lies next to junction seven of the M8 motorway connecting Edinburgh and Glasgow. Maxim Park, which boasts some 756,000 sq ft of office and retail space with a range of onsite amenities, was acquired by Shelborn Asset Management in 2018.
