The new premises, let on behalf of Goodman by agents Carter Jonas, will also be used to establish a new employee training centre.

James Raven, Goodman’s UK Business Parks Development Director, said: “This letting demonstrates our ability to offer customers a complete property solution that continues to provide occupiers with a compelling case to relocate their businesses to Goodman business parks. We’re delighted to welcome HSS Hire to Oxford Business Park that continues to attract leading companies to Oxford City.”

The park has proven to be the perfect location to meet our business needs – the new supercentre is larger than our existing premises, allowing us to offer an improved scale and scope of service for our customers as well as to carry a larger stockholding. It’s a modern high standard facility that reflects our business style and is also more accessible, being close to the major road links.”
