American company chooses Altrincham for its UK base

American company, GrandCare Systems Ltd, has taken 2,516 sq ft on a five-year lease at Altrincham Business Park as its UK head office.

The company delivers systems and monitoring programmes which enable vulnerable and elderly people to remain in their home.

Supplying the NHS, care homes and individuals around the UK, GrandCare Systems Ltd provides large, easy to use touchscreens offering social communications, instructions, reminders, medication prompts and web-based entertainment.

Caregivers can also access the system and wireless activity sensors, environmental sensors and digital health devices can also be integrated.

Matthew Warnes for GrandCare said: “We are delighted to have Altrincham Business Park as our UK Head Quarters, we fully anticipate that we will be expanding our business shortly and Altrincham Business Park gives us the flexibility to do this. Whilst being situated so close to the motorway network allows both ourselves to travel easily and a skilled work force to reach us. We look forward to many fruitful years ahead helping people in the UK stay independent in their own homes for longer.”

CEG took on management of Altrincham Business Park earlier this year following acquisition of the site and is set to make improvements the park in order to provide a quality business destination close to the M56/M60 motorways and Metrolink tram to Manchester.

Robert Morton, investment manager at CEG, said: “We managed the acquisition of Altrincham Business Park earlier this year as we saw the opportunity this well-located and well-serviced site offered. It is in a great location, close to the motorway, with rail/tram links into Manchester and Chester, providing great accessibility to a large workforce. This, coupled with our investment into public realm, landscaping and building frontages and interiors, it will be a very attractive destination and we are confident it will be fully-let in the coming months.

“We are delighted to welcome Grand Care to Altrincham Business Park; they have taken space within one of our self-contained buildings and recognise the benefits this well-located site could offer for their new UK headquarters.”  

Property agents Savills, WHR and Canning O’Neil are marketing the remaining 9,274 sq ft office within One St Georges Square and the three remaining self-contained units. Architect Space Invader has designed the building refurbishment. Work will begin on this and the public realm improvements in autumn 2017.
