TSK lands Kellogg’s HQ brief
Workplace specialist TSK has secured the contract to design and deliver the cereal giant’s 46,000 sq ft UK headquarters at MediaCityUK.
In July, Kellogg’s announced that it will be leaving its office at Talbot Road, next to Old Trafford cricket ground, where it has been based since the 1980s and now employs 420 people.
Kellogg’s has taken three floors of the Orange tower at MediaCity, joining occupiers including the University of Salford and ITV.
TSK will be responsible for the entire fit-out project from workspace planning and design to furniture procurement and assisting with employee engagement. Staff will be moving in from January 2018.
Andy Burke, director of TSK, said: “We are thrilled to be appointed on this important relocation project for Kellogg’s, creating a fantastic, rejuvenated headquarters for them to continue to thrive.
“The company has a strong history here which we are reflecting in the designs, to create a space that will balance bringing their brand to life whilst providing an energised environment to support their people and culture change journey.”
The Kellogg’s office houses the teams that run the company’s UK and Irish sales and marketing business as well as support functions for its European operations, including those involved in research, food development, marketing, sales, human resources and finance.
The production and distribution operation based at Trafford Park is unaffected by the office move.
Kellogg’s UK & Ireland managing director, Dave Lawlor, said: “Our partnership with TSK is all about creating a progressive workplace which reflects where we’ve come from, but more importantly, our ambition for our business in the future, all wrapped up in a new workplace to help us build a new culture.
“Our Old Trafford HQ has served us really well for nearly three decades. But it’s now time to move to a new location which better reflects where we are heading as a company.”
