A media company that more than tripled in size after creating seven jobs has expanded into a Shropshire town’s former courthouse, thanks to a deal completed by Bulleys Bradbury.
Nathan Rous PR has moved from its original base in Much Wenlock to Suite 3 on the first floor of The Court, the old magistrates’ building on the outskirts of Wellington town centre.
The company was founded in 2008 and moved to Much Wenlock with three workers in 2016 but has now grown to ten staff with clients across Europe and the USA.
Mr Rous, director of the company, said: “We needed a bigger space but also wanted premises more fitting for our creative agency, and this beautiful room with vaulted ceilings that once served as the actual court room completely fitted the bill.
“The room used to contain the magistrates’ bench and still has the original court crest on the wall, and we’ve designed our redecoration of the premises around that central feature.
“There’s plenty of room for current staff, break-out areas and space for continued growth, plus we’re just minutes from the train station with a direct route to London.”
Mr Rous said he was grateful not only to Bulleys Bradbury but also to Telford and Wrekin Council which had provided a relocation grant to the company as part of its move.
He added: “We will also be using the new space to host our new hospitality consultancy later this year, which will see another significant expansion.”
Richard Bradbury, director of Telford-based Bulleys Bradbury, arranged the letting of the 1,107 sq ft office with Nathan Rous PR off an asking rent of £8,856 per annum. Mr Bradbury said: “We’re delighted to have found the right premises to house such a fast-growing company, and we’re sure Nathan Rous PR will continue its success at The Court.
“This landmark office building was developed as multi-let offices 18 years ago and is conveniently located on the immediate outskirts of Wellington town centre, with six individual suites and onsite car parking.
“The property is a short walk from the town centre and railway station and is proving to be a popular target for firms looking for impressive premises.”
