A personalised workwear and uniform company is expanding by taking on new staff and moving to a new larger headquarters in Pensnett. 

The Uniform Room has agreed a five-year lease for Building 1, Bay 1 at Multipark Pensnett, with commercial property and investment company LCP, part of M Core, which owns and manages the estate. 

The move will see the family-owned and run business more than double the space at its current home in Oak Street, Cradley Heath.

Jordan Crumpton, co-owner and director, said the move will enable The Uniform Room, which counts the BBC, Coca-Cola and the NHS among its customers, to install new machinery to meet growing customer demand.

He is also looking to increase staff numbers and is investing £100k in the move.

Jordan, who runs the business with his wife Sophie, said: “We have been going through a strong period of growth and need to expand our premises so we can add new embroidery machines to keep up with the demand.

“The move will give us the space we need now and is flexible enough for us to add a mezzanine in the future.”

Fit out, which includes creating additional office space, is under way now, with an anticipated move date at the end of August.

Mr Crumpton plans to add to the complement of eight staff immediately – with a marketing executive and sales person – and employ further production staff early next year, with the aim of having a roll call of 14 employees.

Paula James, industrial lettings manager at LCP, said: “It is most encouraging that the company is thriving, resulting in it taking additional floor space that will help accommodate its growth."

LCP Group is investing more than £1 million on refurbishing several units at Multipark Pensnett this year – after spending £560k last year on improvements to four buildings.
