Work completed on SGS International’s new European HQ at Bridgehead Business Park
Regeneration developer Wykeland Group has completed work on a new 16,000 sq ft office building at Bridgehead Business Park as part of its regeneration plans for Yorkshire and the Humber.
Wykeland’s new-build office building at Bridgehead, the 612,000 sq ft business park situated on the northern approaches to the Humber Bridge, will be the European headquarters for SGS International, which is a specialist in the design, artwork and pre-press supplies for the packaging industry.
Once the fit-out is completed in April, SGS will relocate 120 people to Bridgehead, ensuring the company can remain within the Hull area, having outgrown its existing premises in the city at Citadel Way, which is being retained.
Dominic Gibbons, managing director at Wykeland Group, said: “It is excellent to have completed this latest building at Bridgehead. We are excited about the opportunities we have, currently and in the future, to breathe new life into spaces and places, creating a legacy of renewal, jobs and prosperity.”
Richard Jones, European finance director at SGS, added: “Moving to Bridgehead Business Park gives us the space we need in a much better location. We have clients from all over the world and Bridgehead is easily accessible when flying into Humberside Airport or travelling by road from the south or west.
“It also promotes the right image for our business. Members of our executive leadership team from North America visited after completion of construction and said it matched their aspirations for our European headquarters. Wykeland Group have provided an impressive, light, bright and modern building which is inspiring for the people who work within it.”
SGS will bring the total employed at Bridgehead up to more than 500. Beal Homes, bathroom retailer Victoria Plum, the John Good Group of companies, and laser firm Rofin-Sinar are among other companies who have already moved to one of the UK’s greenest business parks.
