Arcus FM to bring 120 jobs to Redditch

The relocation of Arcus FM, a joint venture between Arcus Solutions and Sainsbury’s, is set to bring up to 120 jobs to Redditch.

The firm, which provides facilities management and engineering maintenance for Sainsbury’s supermarkets, convenience stores and petrol stations nationwide, has outgrown its base at Hartlebury and is to move to Oakenshaw House, on Clews Road.

Arcus FM’s call centre operations and a technical performance engineering hub will transfer across.

Employing around 1,000 people, the London-headquartered firm is looking to expand its business reach to other big names.

Arcus FM CEO Chris Green said: “We have outgrown our offices on Hartlebury Trading Estate and needed something larger. And, 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.”

The company hopes to begin the move around the end of August once £500,000 worth of refurbishment works are completed by Midlands commercial property firm Loxton Developments.

The deal was brokered by property agents John Truslove.

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.

“It is a huge coup and further emphasises the town’s attractiveness for service companies who need good communications and quality road access.”
