The south west’s largest distributor of medical devices has become the first company to buy into a new office development on the outskirts of Truro.
‘3 Truro’ at Threemilestone is the first speculative employment-space development in the Truro area in almost two decades – and CJ Medical will be moving in by the end of the year.
CJ Medical supplies the NHS and private hospital sector with surgical instruments and implants. MD, Charles Reynolds, said: “The space we’ve chosen to purchase at 3 Truro exactly fits our needs and is ideal to serve our UK expansion.
“It’s a rarity to be able to buy space like this and it will enable us to expand our current Cornwall-based workforce from seven to 11 by 2015. We’ve been looking for the right place for five years and there’s plenty to rent but for sound investment reasons it makes much more sense for us to buy.”
The 3 Truro concept has been devised by Walker Threemilestone and property specialist, Vickery Holman, and has been backed by more than £3 million from the European Regional Development Fund Convergence Programme.
Once complete, it will feature 3,419 sq m of work space.
