International flooring company chooses Northumberland base

Fastrack Flooring, the international industrial flooring company, has recently moved its head office to Blyth, Northumberland.

The company was originally formed in Cramlington and branched out into regional offices covering the whole of the UK. It has now merged all its offices into one, situated in a commercial office and unit space owned and managed by Arch Commercial at Blyth Riverside Business Park.

Fastrack Flooring's move back to Northumberland follows their need for a larger storage space and the desire to move back to their roots in Northumberland, with a central office that is easy to access for any deliveries received.

Alan Rutherford, managing director of Fastrack Flooring, said: "Arch have been really helpful and efficient in sorting out any queries that we have had with our new unit. We were keen to get back to our roots in Northumberland, where the company initially started out. It's a fantastic location, with plenty of parking and we have been able to adapt the building to create office space as well as a storage facility."

Arch own and manage a commercial and industrial portfolio of over 1.8 million sq ft and this continues to expand as the business grows further through acquisition and development. The portfolio consists of industrial workshop and warehouse units, office buildings, suites, business parks and managed workspace. Property sizes range from 200 sq ft to 45,000 sq ft.

Richard Wearmouth, chair of Arch, said: "We’re delighted to welcome international business, Fastrack Flooring, to Northumberland. Fastrack Flooring are just one of many companies choosing to locate their business to the County."

"Northumberland is continuing to be a popular location for many international and national companies to move to. This recent investment from Fastrack, along with many other successful businesses, will help to support the local economy, with many creating new jobs for local people."
