North East bakery favourite Greggs has announced plans to relocate its main office site to Quorum
The move comes as the company looks to consolidate a number of its office locations across the region, bringing them into one main business hub on the business park.
Chief executive Roger Whiteside said the company settled on creating new headquarters at Quorum Business Park because of its high quality and modern office space, prime business location, good transport links and close proximity to Greggs Balliol and Gosforth Park production centres.
The company expects to complete the move in spring 2016. Roger Whiteside, chief executive officer at Greggs said: “This move is a positive and exciting step for us, and gives us the opportunity to bring all of our central functions into one location.
“Our new office space will be equipped with a modern interior and carefully designed work spaces to help ensure the best possible working environment for our colleagues.
“I am proud that although we are a thriving national company, with over 1660 shops UK wide, we continue to be rooted firmly in the North East community where the Greggs story first began over 75 years ago.”
Norma Redfearn, Elected Mayor for North Tyneside Council said: “I am delighted Greggs has chosen Quorum Business Park in North Tyneside as the base for its new headquarters.
“The company is a valued employer in the North East, with two well-established manufacturing facilities already located on Balliol Business Park. We look forward to working with the company in the future as they continue to invest and create jobs in the area.”
Fergus Trim, Development Director at Quorum Business Park said: “Greggs are an outstanding success story, of which the North East is rightly proud. We are therefore delighted to welcome their new headquarters to Quorum.”
