On the move; From Flitwick to Milton Keynes

25 September 2020

We’re delighted to announce we’ll be relocating our Flitwick team to a new office in Milton Keynes, enabling a more inclusive way of working and the start of an exciting new chapter for the team.

The Flitwick office (and Shefford before that) has been a foundation of the business for many years, seeing exceptional growth both with the Service Charge division and the Accounts & Outsourcing team which reside there. However, having completed office moves/refurbishments in Kettering, Leicester and Northampton, it felt the right time for Flitwick to spread its wings.

Why MK is the ideal location

Although the old butchers shop in Flitwick’s been good for the business, as we embark on the next chapter as Fortus, it felt right to bring the office into the heart of the Milton Keynes business community.

Key benefits of MK as a location include:

  • It’s one of the UK’s fastest growing cities
  • There’s great road links with both the A5 and M1 easily accessible; and it’s only 30 minutes to London by train
  • It has one of the highest business start-up rates outside of London
  • There’s a thriving economy that includes key players within the scientific, professional, retail, and technical sectors

moving to our new ‘base’

We reviewed dozens of different office spaces before deciding on our new MK building, and we’re confident we’ve chosen a location that fits the brand, offers flexibility and longevity.

The new office is in the suburb of Knowlhill, surrounded by parks and lakes, and sits amongst both a variety of professional service providers (particularly the legal profession) and a number of growing businesses.

We’re on a business park just off the A5, so it’s a great location, with a variety of parking options and a very nice modern building that will serve us well for years to come. We’re anticipating a move date in November, so watch this space…
