Leicestershire based plastics distributor the Plastribution Group has opened new offices following an extensive fit-out.

Based at Charter Point Way in Ashby de la Zouch, the location was chosen due to its close proximity to its previous offices.

The new site comprises 10,000 sq ft over two floors were officially opened on 18 November at an event attended by more than 150 employees, clients and supply chain partners.

The office move represents a significant milestone in Plastribution Group’s journey.

The company said a key objective of the fit out was to create a welcoming space for employees to return to work post lockdown and to also provide room for up to 100 additional people as the company continues its ambitious growth strategy.

Commercial office interior specialists Blueprint Interiors, also based in Ashby, carried out the fit-out.

Mike Boswell, Plastribution Group’s managing director, said: “From the outset Blueprint Interiors adopted a very consultative people first approach with lots of really positive energy placed on showing us what we could achieve with our space. We now have a fantastic new office that we can be proud of which has also helped us to reunite the team after a long lockdown period and created a fantastic first impression for our many visitors.”

Chloe Sproston, creative and commercial director from Blueprint Interiors, said: “As always our approach involved workshops and conversations with users in order to fully understand Plastribution’s brand values and preferred workstyles. This included enabling users to experience working and holding meetings in our own offices at WorkLife Central in order to understand the benefits of the technology and tools we were proposing, such as acoustics, digital technologies for connecting with remote workers, and the use of décor or other construction materials to reflect their brand personality.”

Established in 1979, Plastribution is a leading plastics distribution group, comprising six separate sub-brands, covering thermoplastics, elastomers, speciality chemicals, packaging & label films and furniture foils.

The company currently employs 84 staff.
