Speedo and major hotel buy into the success at Miller Birch's NG2

19/2/10

Ng2 has proved to be the most successful business park in Nottingham over recent years. Speedo’s commitment to the scheme with a 17 year lease coupled to plans to bring forward a major 184 bed hotel at ng2 confirms the success as we move forward into the second decade.

SWIMWEAR label Speedo's change of headquarters should bring more high-profile firms to ng2.

The 43,000sq ft building is to open in a year's time as Speedo's international centre.

The move will reinforce Speedo's long-term commitment to the East Midlands, safeguarding high-quality jobs, it said.

It will be a spacious working environment for Speedo's 170-strong Nottingham workforce.

New Speedo products will be developed at the global Aqualab Research and Development Centre, developed by Miller Birch.

The three-storey offices will also act as the brand's international base for visiting partners and Speedo-sponsored athletes.

David Robinson, president of Speedo International, said: "The brand has a long connection with the Nottingham area.

"These headquarters will help us attract and retain the highest calibre staff and guarantee jobs for people in the region.

"The advanced facilities will enhance the work of the Aqualab Research and Development Centre, meaning the world's best and most technically advanced swimwear continues to be developed here, in Nottingham."

Peter Gadsby of Miller Birch said the deal with Speedo means 30 acres will have been developed for 7,000 jobs – including 5,000 new ones.

He added: "A further eight acres are left and we are talking to other professionals.
