A Midland company which has grown to become the largest independent supplier of forensic services in the UK in less than a decade has returned to its roots to open a new headquarters.
Key Forensic Services, which launched as a one man start-up at the University of Warwick Science Park in 2005, has established a new headquarters at the park’s Vanguard Centre.
The company, which provides services to the police and private clients, now employs more than 250 staff and has three bases across the UK in Norwich, Warrington and Coventry.
Brian Thomas, group finance director, said: “We continue to grow and attract new business so we decided to set-up a new operational headquarters at the Science Park.
“Our rapid growth has meant that the park has been perfect for us because of the flexibility it offers, in terms of the type of accommodation it has available but also the lease agreements it provides.
“It means we have been able to expand while staying at the same location which is good for us, our staff and the city.”
David Grindrod, acting director of the University of Warwick Science Park, said: “Once the company had started to thrive, if we had not been able to offer adjacent expansion space or been flexible in our approach, then we would have lost the company and it might not have stayed in the city.”
