Sertec Expands into New Coleshill Site
Release date: 15th November 2013
Automotive component manufacturer Sertec Group has announced final agreement of terms for their expansion into the site once occupied by the failed telecoms business, Greenwoods Communications.
The 120,000 sq ft facility in Coleshill became available when Greenwoods collapsed in July this year. One company's pain became Sertecís gain and with the company already expanding and increasing capacity, the site's sudden availability was perfect timing for the Coleshill based manufacturer.
Sertec's head office administration and commercial team will move just half a mile down Gorsey Lane to their new site, which will also house a new component assembly hall and logistics operation for Sertec Birmingham. This will allow for expansion of the pressings facility at the current factory which has been Sertec's main operation since 1991.
Having celebrated its 50th anniversary last year, Sertec will acknowledge the company's early beginnings, by naming the new Headquarters 'Wincaster House' after Wincaster Way in Aston, home of its first factory back in 1962.
Group Managing Director Grant Adams is enthusiastic about the move, saying "this opportunity couldn't have come at a better time for us and the proximity to our current factory is perfect from a logistics point of view. We needed more space to allow for our increased production requirements and for the additional 150 employees we are recruiting throughout the Group. This will make us second only to BMW as the largest employers in the area which is great news for Coleshill."
Wincaster House has parking space for 350 cars and a further 45,000 sq ft is available for additional building when necessary.
