A fast growing financial services firm is moving its Midlands headquarters to Blythe Valley Park just ahead of its 20 year anniversary.
Atkin & Co is moving to the business park off Junction 4 of the M42 as part of the latest stage of its company-wide expansion which has also seen the firm open new offices in London.
The pension scheme administrator and actuarial consultant is moving to 5,300 sq ft offices in Cornwall House on the business park after 13 years based at Hatton in Warwickshire.
Managing director Chris Atkin said the firm, which will mark 20 years in business in February, is enjoying a strong period in its history.
“Over the last two years we have seen an unprecedented amount of growth across the business which led to us taking the decision to move to bigger offices,” he said.
“The last year alone has seen our client base rise by almost 20 per cent, and we are now representing close to 100 clients spread across the country.
“The opening of the new office at Blythe Valley Park reflects not only this expansion but also the further potential for growth in the region.”
Atkin said a team of around 30 will be based at Cornwall House.
“We are fortunate to have such a dedicated and enthusiastic team to meet these exciting new opportunities and further grow the business,” he added.
“This is clearly a very exciting time for our organisation and we believe the success we’ve enjoyed directly reflects how pension schemes and trustees are now approaching their provider selection.
“It is no longer just about the ‘big players’, but about schemes more carefully aligning themselves with organisations who are best placed to provide them with the tailored and bespoke service crucial to their schemes.”
Kate Smith, from Liberty Property Trust UK, which develops and manages Blythe Valley Park in partnership with Doughty Hanson & Co Real Estate, said Atkin & Co is well placed to continue its rapid expansion from the park.
“It is refreshing to see an SME performing so well during what remains a very challenging period for businesses,” she said.
“Atkin & Co has enjoyed a successful period and we look forward to working closely with Chris and his team as the organisation continues to expand its operations from its new home on the park.”
