Findel Education has unveiled its £10 million headquarters in Tameside.
The company, one of the largest employers in Tameside, has successfully completed a new 55,000 sq ft office development in Hyde.
Findel Education is the largest supplier of education and classroom products in Europe and is part of the home shopping and educational supplies business Findel.
The move from its previous office in Hyde has been made following a period of growth and acquisitions.Around 450 people will be employed at the base.
Findel’s chief executive Patrick Jolly said: “This fine new building will play a key part in the future success of our operations in the North West.
“We are very happy to invest in Tameside and look forward to working closely with the council in order to ensure the remainder of this prime site is developed soon in a complementary way.
“We believe that our new offices will act as a catalyst and a springboard for development on the adjoining land, which should prove to be a massive boost for job creation in the Tameside area.”
Executive leader of Tameside Council, Coun Roy Oldham, said: “I would just like to thank Findel Education for their continued support and investment into Tameside. The fact they are unveiling a £10m state-of-the-art headquarters is testament to this and long may it continue.”
The new headquarters is the first phase of part of a 13-acre scheme which has been granted planning permission for a mixed-use development by Tameside Council.
