A company called SCA, which sells a wide variety of hygiene and forestry related products to dozens of markets around the world, has lined up a deal that will see it switch office space bases in Manchester.
SCA, which sells a broad range of paper and other tree-based products, has agreed to take-up just short of 10,000 sq ft of office space at the Voyager office building at Manchester Airport. The move will see it leave behind its current offices in Greater Manchester, which are at the Lowry Plaza in Salford Quays.
Originally founded as a collective of Swedish foresting companies, SCA now sells products into more than 100 markets around the world, with its leading brands including the likes of Bodyform, Cushelle and Velvet.
A fit-out process is now set to start on behalf of Stockholm-based SCA at the Voyager office building, which incorporates a total of 71,0000 sq ft of commercial space and is owned by MAG Property, the real estate investment arm of the Manchester Airport Group.
“SCA has had a base in the North West for a number of years and recent expansion in our northern operation has meant we had to seek larger office premises,” explained Sally Barker, SCA’s vice president of consumer goods sales and marketing.
“A major consideration was to ensure it was easily accessible for current and potential employees both in the North West and further afield – being based at Manchester Airport, with its excellent transport facilities ensures that SCA remains ‘on the map’ as an employer of choice in the region.”
MAG Property is expected to announce very soon which parties have succeeding in winning a deal to construct the enormous mixed-use development scheme Airport City, which is set to see £650 million of investment into the areas around Manchester Airport.
