A TOYS and gifts manufacturer has expanded operations by moving its headquarters to new offices in Beverley.
Deluxebase has doubled its office space by taking the second floor at Armstrong House, part of regeneration specialist Wykeland Group’s fast-growing Flemingate development.
The company, which supplies products around the world, has relocated more than 20 people to the 4,000sq ft town centre offices.
Established in Beverley in 1994, Deluxebase has a warehouse near to Beverley and offices in Hong Kong.
Its nature-themed toys and gifts are supplied to thousands of tourist attractions, gift shops and toy shops and two of its biggest local customers are The Deep in Hull and Flamingo Land, near Malton in North Yorkshire.
From its new headquarters, Deluxebase controls product design, sales and shipping for customers across the world.
Deluxebase has relocated from offices in Lairgate, Beverley.
Director Phil Hudson said: “We didn’t have the space we needed in our previous offices, so Armstrong House has given us the room we needed to continue to grow the business.
“Armstrong House appealed to us because it’s an impressive, modern building in an attractive location for our customers to visit us from throughout Europe."
Deluxebase is the latest business to move to the recently developed Flemingate site, which also homes cafés, restaurants and dedicated parking.
David Donkin, property director at Wykeland Group, said he was delighted to welcome Deluxebase to Flemingate.
He said: “This move underlines once again that Flemingate is a first-class business location.
“As Beverley’s first Grade A office development, Armstrong House offers high-quality, modern premises in a central position in the town, with excellent facilities all around.
“By relocating to Armstrong House, Deluxebase has become part of a thriving commercial community at Flemingate.
“There’s a real buzz around the centre and it’s a great place for Deluxebase to do business and for their staff to work.”
Armstrong House offers spacious, open-plan offices which benefit from comfort cooling and daylight dimming lighting, as well as shower facilities and dedicated parking spaces.
A total of 3,500sq ft of office space remains available on the first floor, which can be sub-divided into smaller suites, with potential occupiers encouraged to enquire about Armstrong House without delay.
Deluxebase is the second company to choose Armstrong House for its new headquarters, following a successful move by Local Transport Projects (LTP).
Nick Pearce, of agent PPH Commercial, which handled the Deluxebase letting, said: “This is the largest office letting in Beverley in the past five years and it highlights the importance of the Flemingate scheme in providing the only Grade A office space in the town.”
