A facilities management and engineering maintenance business is set to bring up to 120 jobs to Redditch.
Arcus FM, a joint venture between Arcus Solutions and Sainsbury’s, has outgrown its base at Hartlebury and is to move to Oakenshaw House, on Clews Road, recently purchased by Loxton Developments in a deal brokered by property agents John Truslove.
This will see the company’s call centre operations and a technical performance engineering hub transfer to the new site. Arcus FM provides a full facilities management service for Sainsbury’s supermarkets, convenience stores and petrol stations nationwide, delivering mechanical, engineering and refrigeration support. The group employs around 1,000 people, with a head office at Upminster in east London. While Sainsbury’s is its biggest client, it’s now seeking to expand.
Chris Green, chief executive at Arcus FM, said: “Given the planned growth of the non-Sainsbury’s arm, we were conscious of the need for somewhere which would promote a smart image. Oakenshaw House fits the bill.”
Ben Truslove, a director of John Truslove, said: “This is great news for Redditch and the surrounding area, being one of the largest office lettings in the county in the last 10 years.”
