ABF Grocery Group, which acts as a central support for the businesses within Associated British Foods Grocery Division whose range includes Kingsmill, Pataks and Ryvita, has taken space in one of the buildings at Kings Hill designed for a range of functions.
“As a divisional hub supporting nine other businesses in the UK and overseas we need dedicated office space that can provide flexible hot-desk seating as well as meeting and administrative facilities,” said David Mills, Associated British Foods’ head of group property.
“Kings Hill is very well located for quick access to the motorway and there is a great range of on-site shops, eateries and leisure amenities which will be very convenient for our staff.”
Associated British Foods is a diversified international food, ingredients and retail group with sales of £15.4bn, 133,000 employees and operations in 50 countries. It also owns Primark.
“The company has had a presence at Kings Hill for ten years but needed a specialised office, which we are delighted to have been able to provide,” said Caroline Binns of Kings Hill developer Liberty Property Trust. “We are very fortunate to have a range of office solutions for a variety of business needs which gives tenants choice and flexibility.”
As well as food related businesses, Kings Hill has a varied and diverse tenant mix from many sectors including financial services, oil, communications, automotive, professional services and property.
