Next level for flooring company

Property Posted 03/10/18
A mezzanine flooring company whose clients include some of the best-known names in the UK and abroad, has again committed to Kent and Kings Hill having renewed its lease in the business park.

Mezzanine International Group designs, manufactures and installs space-saving mezzanine flooring systems for industrial and commercial uses as far afield as Azerbaijan, Oman, China, Australia, Brazil and Ethiopia.

Key sectors it works in are e-fulfilment, storage and distribution, construction, manufacturing, retail and entertainment. Among many others, its clients include John Lewis, Marks & Spencer, Zara, Amazon, GlaxoSmithKline, Honda, Big Yellow Storage, AMEC and McAlpine construction. Mezzanine International is the official UK number one mezzanine flooring supplier (Plimsoll 2018).

The company, which is owned by the US investment organisation MiTekÒ Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway company, is a holder of the Queen’s Award for International Trade and one of the London Stock Exchange Group’s ‘Top 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’ for growth. Mezzanine International moved to Kings Hill in 2013 and in the last year alone increased its workforce by more than 30%.

“We are always looking to attract new talent as we grow, so we need to be able to offer excellent working conditions,” said Mezzanine International’s managing director, Scott Chambers.

“Our offices are modern, light and airy and our people enjoy having so many amenities within walking distance, including Waitrose, and many cafes and restaurants. The free parking and landscaped surrounds are also a bonus.”

Projects the company has undertaken include large-scale, multi-tier mezzanine platforms for some of the world’s leading e-commerce players. Such is the size of these installations that the technical teams at Mezzanine International have had to factor the curvature of the earth into their designs.

“It’s always good to see our tenants doing so well and we are delighted Mezzanine International Group is staying here and growing,” said Caroline Binns of Kings Hill developer Liberty Property Trust.”
