Global manufacturer of vacuums and home appliances, SharkNinja, marches on with its UK expansion today by opening further office space in Leeds.

The new 17,000 sq ft office, based in the Thorpe Park area of the city builds upon the existing footprint SharkNinja has in the region after relocating its UK headquarters from Wakefield to Leeds in 2019.

Its office, at 2180 Century Way, will provide seating for 125 people, doubling the number of employees in the city and taking the total UK headcount to 450 people.

The 3.5-year lease, which was brokered by global property consultancy Knight Frank, has been described as one of the major out-of-town office deals in Yorkshire this year.

Shark is a vacuum cleaner brand, whilst Ninja home appliances continues to grow rapidly since its launch in the UK. It is the growth of both brands which has allowed SharkNinja to extend its network across the UK.

The company’s vice president of people & culture, Jon Wright, said: “SharkNinja’s growth is spurred on by the success of new product launches and our fantastic staff in the UK.

“We are continuing to invest in our staff, drive innovation and develop our international expansion. As a result, we will be increasing our workforce in Leeds, hence the need for more quality office space.”

“Since the opening of our first Leeds office at 3150 Century Way, Thorpe Park has proved to be an excellent location for SharkNinja and our staff and we are delighted to be able to keep expanding across the northern region.”
