A provider of flexible business space for small and growing enterprises, Evans Easyspace, is to invest £1.5 million in its first development in the West Midlands, at Roway Lane, Oldbury, in the heart of the Black Country.
The business centre is to be built on Direct 2, a new business park within one mile of Junction 2 of the M5, and will offer 21 offices and eight workshops, providing a home for up to 29 businesses.
"The West Midlands is a key area for expansion of the Easyspace network," said Evans Easyspace managing director Tom Stokes.
"There is a vibrant commercial environment and a constant demand for good quality business space. We'll be providing much needed office and workshop facilities for the small business sector, which needs the intensively managed, easy-in, easy-out terms we offer throughout the UK."
Evans Easyspace operates 28 business centres around the UK and, thanks to a £100 million funding package with Kodak Pension Plan, is set to triple in size over the next five years.
The Oldbury development totals 14,000 sq ft, providing 21 offices of 150 - 750 sq ft, and eight workshops from 675 - 1000 sq ft.
It is hoped that construction will begin in April, with completion scheduled for October.
