Kellogg’s UK and Ireland has revealed that it is set to move from its head office on Talbot Road to a new office in Salford’s Media City early next year.
The move to MediaCity will see Kellogg’s join the likes of Salford University and ITV in Salford’s Orange Tower.
The company will however continue to manufacture its cereal in Trafford as its manufacturing plant stays put.
Dave Lawlor, Kellogg’s UK and Ireland managing director, said: “We can confirm we have announced this morning that we are relocating employees currently based at our Talbot Road site to a new office in MediaCity UK from early next year.
“Talbot Road has served us well over almost three decades but it’s time to move to somewhere which better reflects where we want to take our business in the future.
“We’ve been proud to call Greater Manchester our UK home since 1938 so incredibly pleased to be staying within the city-region, just a short distance away from our current site.”
Its 420 employees will be based over 3 floors of the Orange Tower from January next year – a total of 48,000 sq ft.
The team which will be based at MediaCityUK includes sales and marketing; and support for its European operations (research, food development, HR and finance).
“We are delighted to welcome Kellogg’s to MediaCityUK – it’s a privilege for us that such a renowned international brand has decided to be base its UK headquarters here. Kellogg’s has a great history with Manchester and we look forward to supporting its future growth,” added Stephen Wild, managing director, MediaCityUK.
“The move reflects the increasing importance of data and digital to all types of businesses and Kellogg’s will have direct access to a still wider range of skills including data analysts, user experience experts and designers.”
Its factory at Trafford Park will not be affected by the move.
