Electric vehicle firm drives growth with expanded London base
Electric vehicle company Arrival has expanded into 50,000 sq ft of office space in West London as part of its ongoing growth.
Situated in Kensington Village, the firm has increased its occupation of the Schroder UK Real Estate Fund (SREF) office by 45,000 sq ft in order to create its official UK headquarters and expand the business.
The technology firm specialises in affordable commercial electric vehicles, with trials already taking place with couriers DHL and UPS as well as Royal Mail and John Lewis Partnership.
Avinash Rugoobur, chief of strategy at Arrival, commented: “Over the past few years our operations have increased dramatically and we are excited to expand our footprint in Kensington Village to allow them to grow even more.
“It’s a beautiful space and we’re pleased that our presence means the building continues to support UK industry.”
Jessica Berney, SREF fund manager, added: “Arrival is an innovative and revolutionary company which is helping to transform the motoring industry. It is a real testament to Kensington Village that they have decided to use these facilities to support their expansion.
“We expect Arrival to grow further as demand for electric vehicles continues to grow and we will ensure we support their growth by providing the best in class workspaces.”
