Addison Lee Group has announced its relocation to central London offices, marking its third UK property investment in 12 months.
The transport firm’s relocation to its new headquarters, located at The Point in the Paddington Basin district in central London, marks its pursuit of a global growth strategy.
Its 380 central London staff will move to new premises, configured as an “agile workplace”, where staff choose desks each day depending on the people they need to work with, encouraging teams to work more closely together.
Addison Lee’s chief executive Andy Boland said: “Addison Lee’s investment in a new global HQ and in world-class facilities across the UK demonstrates belief in our future, people and in Britain as a great place to do business.”
The investment in a new head office comes in a year where the business’ key support areas have been relocated to better serve their customers.
Addison Lee opened Grand Union, a new driver service and training centre - designed to support the company’s fleet and driver partners - near Heathrow Airport, and a purpose-built customer service centre in Peterborough, creating 250 jobs.
Boland said: “While our focus is global, we’re a business with a London heritage, and recent demand shows a huge opportunity for us in our home city.”
The global HQ will support Addison Lee North America, which is launching a branded fleet in New York and includes the group’s three acquisitions.
