BCA Logistics has moved into new 10,000 sq ft premises at 3700 Parkside on Birmingham Business Park. BCA Logistics is the UK’s largest provider of Logistics Solutions in the automotive sector, delivering a range of market leading products and services and 110 staff have moved to the new premises from their current offices in Bordesley Green and Measham. The move has come on the back of 2 years sustained growth for BCA Logistics in which the company saw volumes increase by around 30%. Last month BCA announced the acquisition of nkl automotive ltd, the vehicle logistics specialists based in Goole, Yorkshire which has become part of BCA Logistics.
3700 Parkside on Birmingham Business Park provides BCA Logistics with a purpose built headquarters and technology hub to control the company’s fast growing logistics business which currently handles over a quarter of a million moves annually. Birmingham Business Park offers easy access to the Midlands motorway network with both the M6 and M42 motorways within a mile.
Jamie Carr, BCA Logistics Operational Director commented
“BCA’s new headquarters and technology centre provides us with the flexibility for future growth and expansion to meet and exceed the needs of our customers as we increase our market share and deliver new services in the Vehicle Logistics Market. This superb new facility allows us to centralise a number of operational functions, which will provide improved service to customers through greater efficiencies and more effective and timely communication with every area of BCA’s business. Logistics fulfilment is a key part of our strategy to develop and deliver market leading remarketing solutions for our customers.”
Richard Fletcher-Brewer acted on behalf of the landlord in relation to the letting. Working with the Business Investment team at Solihull Council, BCA were able to consider a number of options within Solihull before arriving at the decision that Birmingham Business Park was the right location which would support the company’s growth plans. Councillor Courts, Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Regeneration says:
“BCA is yet another great name for Birmingham Business Park and Solihull This announcement is proof of the enduring appeal of Solihull as a destination for businesses looking to grow and we are proud to welcome BCA to the Borough. The Business Investment team, at Solihull council worked closely with BCA to ensure Solihull became the location of choice to support the company expansion plans, and will continue to support the business as it embarks upon its next stage of growth.”
