A GLOBAL medical company which moved into Winnersh Triangle earlier this year has expanded its operations.
Becton Dickinson (BD) only moved into the development in May, but three months later it has expanded to lease the entire 60,000 sq ft Grade A building at 1030 Eskdale Road, Winnersh Triangle manager Patrizia UK announced on Monday.
BD’s relocation to Winnersh Triangle was part of its strategic plan to relocate, consolidate and develop its UK sites. Their Winners base now houses the organisation’s UK commercial operations, as well as support functions, technical services and an Innovation Centre to host customers.
BD UK General Manager, Mike Fairbourn said: “We are delighted to expand our presence at Winnersh Triangle.
“We have brought together our UK teams under one roof, enabling greater collaboration and focus on our customers.
“The location of our new offices near Reading, within the M4 / Thames Valley corridor and so close to London, gives us great opportunities to attract new talent to BD alongside our existing people. It’s exciting to be part of a flourishing community of other big global names and smaller, newer players in the science and technology fields.”
PATRIZIA UK’s Rupert Batho, Director, Asset Management, added: “BD’s commitment to Winnersh Triangle pays testimony to our quality and flexibility of accommodation combined with superb onsite amenities and access to fast road, rail and air connections.”
