First phase of Treatt’s new headquarters complete
Developer Jaynic has completed the multi-million pound 112,000 sq ft first phase of the new UK headquarters for Treatt plc at Suffolk Park, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.
Jaynic, the developer of Suffolk Park, acted as development manager for Treatt, the London Stock Market quoted global flavour and fragrance solutions provider, that has been based in Bury St Edmunds for nearly 50 years.
The building contractor for the first phase was Readie Construction who started on site in September 2019.
The new purpose-built headquarters includes offices, manufacturing, logistics and a warehousing facility totalling 112,000 sq ft in its first phase and there is provision to expand this up to 200,000 sq ft in a later phase.
Treatt currently occupies six separate buildings on Northern Way in Bury St Edmunds. The new facility at Suffolk Park allows the company to bring all its activities onto one inclusive site.
Daemmon Reeve, group CEO of Treatt, said: “This relocation will revolutionise every aspect of our business and is the most significant investment in our 130-year history.
“We are delighted to be one of the first businesses to build on Suffolk Park. To have continued such a complex construction with minimal delays amidst the turbulence of 2020 has been a testament to all those involved.
“With the fit-out phase now fully underway we look forward to occupying our new state of the art facility in due course.”
The development is part of a broader multi-partner initiative with West Suffolk Council and housebuilder Taylor Wimpey to support a range of new and existing businesses in the Bury St Edmunds area and to continue to create jobs and prosperity.
• Jaynic has secured detailed planning consent for an 870,000 sq ft warehouse to be developed at Suffolk Park for Belgian logistics, company Weerts Group. The Belgian company concluded terms on the 42-acre site from Jaynic in October as its first location in the UK; the facility will be completed in summer 2021.
