Location, location, location – that’s why top companies are choosing to site themselves in Sutton.
According to Nigel Mogridge, investment manager at Valad, a multi-letting investment and development company which has recently jointed invested with Schroders in Sutton’s Kimpton Industrial Park.
“We have invested in Sutton for various reasons, but mainly location,” he told a packed conference audience at Opportunity Sutton on June 13th.
“It’s very obvious that location is very good – it is positioned strategically between central London and the M25, liked with the A217 which is dual for most of its length. Accessibility is very good and in addition, the density and demographics of the population are attractive; there is a ready labour supply, and a ready market for some of our tenants.
“As a result, it has been possible to attract to Sutton a number of big names, some of whom are companies wanting to escape the more congested central areas, and others are national and multi-national companies requiring regional representation, choosing Sutton largely for its communication links but facilitated by other benefits.”
