The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Business Telegraph -

Peter­bor­ough-based hol­i­day gi­ant Thomas Cook is about to throw open the doors to its new home in the city. The travel op­er­a­tor, which em­ploys 1,200 peo­ple in Peter­bor­ough, is re­lo­cat­ing from Bret­ton to West­point House in Lynch Wood, on Mon­day. (Au­gust 22) Chris Mot­ter­shead, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, said: “Thomas Cook has been a lead­ing em­ployer in Peter­bor­ough for 43 years, and we are here for the long term. “We are very proud of our new premises and we are con­fi­dent that it will bring a marked im­prove­ment to the com­fort and team spirit of our cur­rent and fu­ture em­ploy­ees. “We will con­tinue to of­fer our cus­tomers great hol­i­days for decades to come.” The move comes as the com­pany cel­e­brates its 175th anniversary. Prior to the cur­rent re­lo­ca­tion, Thomas Cook was based at its Con­ingsby Road site in Bret­ton for 20 years, which it owns. The com­pany con­tin­ues to re­view op­tions for the premises. The new base will be leased from land­lord West­mount Real Es­tate and the move is a sig­nif­i­cant in­vest­ment in the fu­ture of Thomas Cook in Peter­bor­ough.
