Steel stockholder Zapp GB is moving to a newly refurbished headquarters at the Thorncliffe Distribution Centre as part of its growth plans.

The German-owned company is relocating 
from Parkway Close to the 22,400 sq ft former Virgin Media database centre as the result of a deal brokered by Knight Frank on behalf of Thorncliffe Distribution Centre landlord Threadneedle.

Zapp service centre manager Mark Wragg said: “Knight Frank has been instrumental in finding the right location and the right premises for Zapp to further our development.

“The new headquarters is the ideal tool to enable us to reach the next level of growth.

“The building is in an area that puts us in close proximity to key suppliers and manufacturers offering niche products, so it’s the perfect geographical location for the company and its clients.”

Knight Frank partner Tim Bottrill said: “These modern industrial premises are based at a popular and 
well-established business park, just minutes from both the M1 and the M18.

“Thorncliffe offers businesses an excellent environment as well as strong labour, supplier and transport links. As Zapp has indentified, these selling points make it an ideal space to showcase services and products – and expand the business further.”
