The UK management team at Würth Elektronik, comprising of Martin Warrington, James East, Glen Wallis and Emma Duffin, are excited for this next stage of the company’s growth. Having been based in Salford Quays for 10 years, they were keen to remain in the area and the opportunity to join the thriving community at MediaCityUK was a draw, matching their employees’ lively work and social balance.
The Vic is the result of a £9million redevelopment of a character building in MediaCityUK. It is the anchor of Harbour Lane – an area with health, wellbeing and mindfulness at its core. The Vic has been transformed to support a healthy work-life balance with on-site amenities such as a new bike store, locker and shower scheme, an enhanced ‘Bean’ café and spaces assigned to facilitate a programme of fitness and exercise.
Tim Taylor, leasing manager for Peel, comments “On meeting the representatives of Würth Elektronik we are certain their decision to join our other blue chip tenants at MediaCityUK was the right one – their values of employee welfare and green plan credentials make them an excellent partner.”
DENTON have been appointed for the fit out with works scheduled to complete by the end of the year. Richard McNicholl, Director for DENTON, has worked closely with Würth Elektronik through original space redesign to full proposals for new scheme at the Vic. He comments, “Engaging early with Martin and the team has helped us understand their needs, with staff wellbeing at the heart. Kate Rainey, lead design on the project developed the scheme around the people and business process, which encourages collaboration and interaction, while providing flexibility too. We are looking forward to handing over the space to Würth Elektronik, wishing them many successful years in their new home.”
