Flurry of deals at Quadrus Centre

Five deals have been agreed, bringing a range of tenants to the South Tyneside Council-owned business hub.

The Health Insurance Group, Urban River, Apex Time Critical, ILM Associates and XIX Developments have all opened now started operating from the Quadrus Centre.

The recent lettings take the total number of businesses based at the hub, situated just off the A19 near Boldon Business Park, to 28.

Marketing and web design agency Urban River has moved into Studio 206, a 484 sq ft office which will house its six members of staff.

Carl Buckley, managing director of Urban River, said: “We have been based in South Tyneside for 22 years, so when it came to moving, we were intent on remaining in the borough.

“We knew the lease on our previous office was due to expire so we began looking for somewhere new and The Quadrus Centre was just perfect. It’s in a great location, has amazing facilities, onsite meeting rooms and plentiful free parking spaces.

“Not only that, but South Tyneside Council, which runs the centre, also allowed us to relocate a few days before our existing office expired, which helped us massively reduce the stress of having to move in a single day.

“We’re delighted to have joined the centre and hopefully it’ll help us to continue growing as we look to the future.”

Employee benefits specialist the Health Insurance Group has opened a new 592 sq ft head office.

“We’ve grown significantly over recent years so the ability to move somewhere which afforded us the flexibility and space to grow at a pace that suited us really appealed,” said director Adam Brown.

“It’s position just off the A19 was another influencer in our decision. We also have offices in the Midlands so being so well connected to local transport routes was essential and The Quadrus Centre just ticked every box.”

Apex Time Critical, which specialises in managing time-sensitive cargo, has moved to a 237 sq ft office at the centre.

Carl Thompson, managing director, said: “Having recruited three new members of staff, we found that we’d outgrown our previous office, so we approached the team who manage the centre.

“They were able to source a new, larger unit which met our expectations for the immediate future, while also providing a great insight into how The Quadrus Centre can support our growth going forward.”

The Quadrus Centre is one of four business centres owned and managed by South Tyneside Council alongside Jarrow Business Centre, One Trinity Green and South Shields Business Works.
