Fujitsu Services, one of Europe’s leading IT services companies, will be opening brand new offices in the Central Park development in Manchester on 17 June. The three buildings in the development cover 175,000 sq ft and will house 900 staff from all areas of Fujitsu.

The majority of staff will be moving from their existing offices in Gorton, Manchester, and the remainder are coming from Fujitsu’s three other premises in the area. The office consolidation will serve to open up channels of communication throughout the company by joining staff together and providing them with an open plan and modern environment.

David Sillitoe, director of group property at Fujitsu Services added: “Central Park is a superb location and we are very much looking forward to relocating our Manchester offices within these excellent, high quality designed buildings.”

Central Park will be the UK’s first large-scale mixed-use urban business park, covering 450 acres by the time of its completion. Initially 90 acres are being developed including office space totalling 1.4 million sq ft (130,060 sq m). Central Park will be located just 1.5 miles from Manchester City Centre.
