Atradius Credit Insurance is relocating from Salford Quays to The Chancery, 58 Spring Gardens.
It has taken 2,159 sq ft on the sixth floor of the building on a 10-year lease, with the deal secured by Manchester’s OBI Property.
Atradius regional manager Mike Rowan said: “We are delighted to be moving into the city centre as it means we can be closer to our customers and brokers, right in the heart of Manchester. The launch of our new ‘Northern Hub’ office, which employs six people, means we can continue our tradition for progress and innovation by expanding our resources and capabilities. This will ensure that we can service the needs of all our brokers, customers and prospects in the north of England and Scotland.”
The Atradius Group is more than 85 years-old, with a team of more than 3,300 people across 160 offices in 45 countries. It provides trade credit insurance, surety and collections services.
MEN Business of the Year winner OBI represented the landlord of The Chancery, Aberdeen Asset Management, and has also recently designed and project managed a refurbishment of the common areas of the building including the lifts, lift lobbies and toilets.
Emma Powell, surveyor at OBI, said: “The Chancery is looking great and it’s a great location for Atradius. The building has almost reached full capacity and there is strong interest in the remaining units. It’s another sign of the up lift we’ve seen in the market over the past few months.”
Kate Simpson, Surveyor, Cooke & Arkwright, the agent representing Atradius, said: “We undertook an office search across the Manchester area and The Chancery met all the needs of our client.”
