IT group acquires office space at Birchwood Park

Birchwood Park, Warrington

Birchwood Park, the North West’s largest out-of-town business destination, has announced IT management solutions provider, Flexera, as its latest occupier.

The deal, secured in partnership with agents BE Group, JLL and Cushman & Wakefield acting on behalf Flexara, sees the tech specialist acquire a 16,209 sq ft office space on the park.

With almost 100 staff and consisting of two main divisions – Flexera and Revenera – the company aims to help organisations realise optimum value from their assets. It supports businesses in maximising their value, while answering the growing demands placed on both IT infrastructures, and the IT leaders who manage them.

With an ever-expanding team, Flexera identified Cheshire as a growing hub for the EMEA region and, when looking for a larger office space, quickly realised Birchwood Park was both ideally located and offered flexible opportunities for its increasing footprint, as well as easy access for employees with a skilled local talent pool.

Kathy Tomlinson, site leader at Flexera, said: “Birchwood Park provided so many solutions to issues that are extremely important to our business and staff. It’s the perfect location for access to new graduates from a range of nearby universities including Manchester, Chester and Liverpool, as well as attracting professionals with experience in the tech industry from a broad range of North West cities.

“The wellbeing of our team is also really important to us – we have taken a hybrid working approach to encourage a balance between using office space for collaboration and key events, while allowing home working to free up time for personal commitment.

“We also have a very active social committee with a number of grass roots clubs, so lots of our staff are looking forward to getting involved in the cross-site programmes at Birchwood Park. The gym classes, wellbeing events, business networking and fundraising activities all ticked the box for us. The amenities on site, such as childcare and such a varied food offer at The EngineRooms, also provide great options for our growing team.”

Martin O’Rourke, commercial director at Birchwood Park, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Flexera to Birchwood Park, highlighting the diverse range of businesses we have here, as the business community at the Park continues to grow.

“It’s an exciting time for the tech industry in the North West, and Flexera has exciting plans as thought leaders in their field. We are looking forward to seeing their continued growth in the new office space at Birchwood Park.”
