G&P has moved its global HQ to Fort Dunlop

A company which supplies aerospace and automotive firms such as Jaguar Land Rover has relocated to a new headquarters in Birmingham.

G&P, which provides quality management services, has moved from its home in Walsall to a new global HQ at Fort Dunlop in Castle Bromwich.

It has taken 13,500 sq ft on the fourth floor of the former tyre factory where 75 staff are now based. The group employs a further 1,300 members of staff globally including in Germany and China.

G&P chairman Dino Kyriacou said: "In recent years, G&P has experienced substantial levels of growth and our relocation to Fort Dunlop is a significant reflection of this ongoing success and expansion.

"This is an incredibly exciting time for G&P, the relocation provides us with the additional space and capabilities that we require to accommodate our further growth."

Last month, city planners gave permission for work to start on the first major renovation of Fort Dunlop since it reopened as a mixed-use office and leisure complex in 2006.

Owner Tristan Capital, which acquired the 375,000 sq ft building in 2014, plans to construct an enclosed glass conference area on the roof and add an extra 473 parking spaces and new public realm while the adjoining Travelodge hotel will undergo its first facelift since opening.

Neil Edginton, managing director of EDG Property which is leading the refurbishment, added: "G&P is an award-winning and well-respected company and we're delighted they've chosen Fort Dunlop to relocate to.

"Our location once again proved key and our proximity to a number of key automotive brands proved to be the ideal combination for G&P."
