National building materials company expands northeast

DurhamGate supports the continued northeast expansion of national building materials company Breedon Group with new office space.

Developer Arlington Real Estate has agreed to lease terms with Breedon Group for 4,500 square feet of newly redeveloped office space at No.1 DurhamGate, located at the entrance to DurhamGate. Arlington will welcome Breedon Group in February after customizing the offices to meet their operational needs.

Breedon Group employs 3,500 of which 300 are based in the North East. It produces cement, aggregates, asphalt, ready-mixed concrete, Welsh slate and specialty concrete and clay products.

Moving from its current office in Raisby Quarry, Coxhoe, the DurhamGate facility will create much needed additional capacity for the business. After having completed the acquisitions of part of Cemex and Express Minimix, its current premises were no longer able to accommodate its extended team.

This latest addition is another important part of Arlington’s evolving master plan for DurhamGate, further building on the success of the mixed-use community located five miles from Durham City.

Dean Cook, Managing Director of Arlington Real Estate, said: “We are delighted that Breedon Group becomes the next nationally recognized company to locate at DurhamGate.

“We have continued to invest in the site, making it an attractive location for businesses looking not only for modern spaces, but also a high quality environment with a vibrant and welcoming community.

Louise Hall, Breedon Group Customer Services Manager – North East England, said: “Although Breedon Group is a UK-wide business, it is important to us to provide our customers with a local, with people who have local knowledge to build ongoing relationships.

“The move to DurhamGate will provide us with a great opportunity to grow as a team and strengthen our business in the North East.

“We have increased our workforce through organic development and acquisition, which has resulted in the need for larger office space, and we believe that DurhamGate, as a premier business location, will help us attract new future employees as we continue to grow. “
