300-year-old fam­ily firm joins city hub

Birmingham Post - - COMMERCIAL PROPERTY -

A HIS­TORIC fam­ily busi­ness dat­ing back more than three cen­turies has be­come the lat­est to join Birm­ing­ham’s Ad­vanced Man­u­fac­tur­ing Hub.

Salts Health­care, which man­u­fac­tures med­i­cal de­vices and can trace its roots back to 1701, has agreed to take the whole of the 94,500 sq ft Apollo build­ing on the hub in As­ton.

As part of fu­ture ex­pan­sion, it will be re­lo­cat­ing its hi-tech man­u­fac­tur­ing and assem­bly op­er­a­tions to sup­ple­ment the other premises it op­er­ates in the Birm­ing­ham area.

Man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Peter Salt said: “The Apollo build­ing will al­low Salts Health­care to con­tinue with its busi­ness ex­pan­sion and pro­vide it with the op­por­tu­nity to fur­ther de­velop its in­no­va­tive pro­duc­tion tech­niques and prod­uct re­search.

“We are proud to have se­cured this new pres­ti­gious site which will al­low us to re­main in Birm­ing­ham and it fits well with our fu­ture plans and strate­gies.”
