Europa Worldwide relocating Scottish operation to Maxim
Maxim Office Park has today announced it has secured one of the UK’s largest privately owned transport and logistics companies as a new tenant.
Europa Road, a dedicated division of ambitious logistics operator, Europa Worldwide Group, is relocating its Scottish operation from Gartsherrie Industrial Estate in Coatbridge and has taken a suite on the second floor of Maxim 1. Extending to 1,173 sq ft, Europa has acquired the space on a five year lease and is expected to take occupation immediately.
Europa Road’s new office at Maxim provides a modern and environmentally efficient working environment, and enables the company to capitalise on commercial opportunities in the local marketplace and across Europe.
With warehouses and transit facilities throughout the UK and Asia, and more than 600 employees across 13 sites, Europa provides a complete supply chain of tailor-made freight and logistics solutions to customers across a diverse range of sectors and locations. The company operates over 475 scheduled service departures per week, delivering in excess of 500,000 shipments per year in over 160 countries.
Europa’s move to Maxim follows a period of strong performance and growth for the company which has led to the need to expand. The new office also has space for more hires expected by the team in 2017.
Carl Potter, HR and Facilities director for Europa Worldwide, commented on the move: “As a logistics company, the right location and infrastructure were key decision making factors when choosing a new Scottish office. Maxim provides easy access to the central belt and motorway network as well as quick links to both Glasgow and Edinburgh airports, making it the perfect spot for our expanding business.
“Our new office is a modern and high quality facility with great on-site amenities for our staff as well as future growth flexibility. We are very much looking forward to moving in and joining the Maxim community.”
Craig Ritchie of Maxim Office Park said: “It’s fantastic to see another ambitious business relocate to the Park, which is credit to our excellent location and accessibility. Another key selling point of Maxim is the huge variety of highly flexible space that we can offer our tenants. From small suites to whole HQ-style buildings, there is office accommodation to suit all requirements.
“It is fantastic that Europa has chosen Maxim for its new Scottish base and I am looking forward to welcoming the team to the Park very soon.”
Dionne Redpath, branch network and sales director for Europa Road, added: “Our investment in the new office move is a statement of our intent to continue to grow our business in Scotland. The local market is very important strategically for Europa and presents some great commercial opportunities for us in what is an extremely competitive sector. We are confident that we can help support many successful regional businesses grow their own operations and together will boost the local economy and employment.”
