The debt manager and financial advisory business Smooth Financial has agreed terms on a deal that will see it switch offices in the town of Sale, Greater Manchester.
Jackson House will become the company’s new headquarters from 2012 with a five-year lease signed on half of the fourth floor of an office building also occupied by the global computer group IBM and the pallet hire business Chep UK.
Landlord at Jackson House is the Commercial Estates Group, which has declared the deal for Smooth Financial to occupy 14,242 sqft of space as the largest single office renting agreement stuck in the Sale and Altrincham area so far in 2011.
“At Smooth, our biggest asset is our people. We have trained and developed a great team and with our rapid growth we needed a HQ that could provide a base to expand and fulfil our potential,” explained Robert Jones, Smooth’s financial director.
“We are a local company, built from the ground up here in South Manchester so moving out of the region was never a consideration. We endeavoured to find the perfect local property and Jackson House was the ideal choice.”
Currently based out of offices at Crossford Court on Dane Road in Sale, Smooth Financial will move to an open plan office with communal areas and with a training academy suite on site.
“The whole company is buzzing about the move and looking forward to 2012 and beyond at Jackson House,” said Jones.
Smooth Financial’s business is based essentially around providing what is often much needed advice to individuals experiencing serious debt problems or other kinds of burdensome financial difficulty.
For its part, the Commercial Estates Group has a property portfolio worth over £650 million covering some 8.1 million sqft across the UK. It has offices of its own in London, Harrogate and Cornwall.
