British furniture manufacturer Vitsoe is to build a new production building and headquarters at the former Ford Foundry site in Leamington.
The company has purchased the land next to the new Morrison’s supermarket due to Leamington’s ‘central location amidst Vitsoe’s supply chain, its excellent transport connections, the town’s distinguished architecture, and the community’s rich industrial heritage’.
Vitsoe’s managing director, Mark Adams, said: “With our prominent location in Leamington we hope to enthuse the next generation with the reality that we can design and make the best in Britain for global markets.”
Vitsoe is working to design a building on the 3.3-acre site before submitting a planning application later this summer, at which time further information will be released.
