A creative West Midlands firm has completed a major expansion into a new office at the Cobalt Centre, close to Coventry Airport.
Headred specialises in designing websites along with printed material for local and national clients such as Coventry City Council, B&Q, Volvo, relate, Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the Quality Improvement Agency.
The Coventry company was founded nine years ago by managing directors Liam McGurk and Philip Smith and was previously based at the Coventry Technology Centre. But thanks to a growing client base and increasing staff, the firm needed to find a new base.
Headred was assisted in its move by commercial property specialists Shortland Horne, and the company is already going from strength to strength since moving into its new home.
Philip said: "We have just secured a contract with DIY retailers Wickes and are in negotiations with Travis Perkins and Homebase so business is really booming at the moment.
"Currently there are nine of us but as our cliental is expanding so much that we will be recruiting more staff by the end of this year."
Alongside web design, Headred also provide a wide range of graphic services, including designing and producing business stationery, exhibition displays, information graphics, marketing brochures and promotional material.
The Cobalt Centre is being marketed by Shortland Horne and Evans Hardy Bromwich.
The first phase of offices has sold out and work has just completed on phase two with space available from 1,125 sq ft up to a possible 14,520 sq ft. Philip said: "The location is fantastic because it is so lovely and serene. It's a creative environment to work in as it's away from the hustle and bustle of the busy city centre."
Cameron Thomson, of Shortland Horne, also said: "The Cobalt Centre was designed for firms just like Headred and we are delighted that they have chosen to expand within the city.
"It is great that Cobalt Developments, the developer for the scheme, are able to discuss various occupational solutions to accommodate new occupiers."
