G&P relocates to Fort Dunlop

Göbel & Partner (G&P) has relocated its global head office to Fort Dunlop on the edge of Birmingham, at the heart of the UK’s automotive industry.

The firm, a leading total quality management services provider to the automotive and aerospace industries, hailed the close proximity of the site to some of its major clients.

A prime example of this is the firm’s close working relationship with Jaguar Land Rover, whose Castle Bromwich plant is situated immediately next to the Fort Dunlop building.

G&P chairman Dino Kyriacou said: “In recent years G&P has experienced substantial levels of growth and our relocation to Fort Dunlop is a significant reflection of this ongoing success and expansion.

“This is an incredibly exciting time for G&P, the relocation provides us with the additional space and capabilities that we require to accommodate our further growth.”

Originally built in 1916 as the main factory for Dunlop Rubber, the Fort Dunlop building was at one point the largest factory in the world, and in 1954, employed more than 10,000 workers.

Today, the modernised building is home to more than 40 businesses including a host of retail and leisure outlets, eateries and even a hotel.

In addition to the 75 staff that will be based at its new HQ, G&P also employs a further 1,300 staff members globally.
