Australian beauty firm, BWX, have set up their UK headquarters in the village of Stoney Stanton in Leicestershire.
BWX have joined Stoney Stanton by striking up and securing a deal with Hinckley’s very own Station Road-based property surveyors and estate agents, Wards.
The natural cosmetics and beauty business, who say that they are ‘reimagining the beauty industry naturally’, have taken on the EMP House office space in the village which is located on Sapcote Road.
In a statement to the Hinckley Free Press regarding the purchase of the office space, Harry Ward, Chartered Surveyor at Wards, commented on the Australian business joining the village in the East Midlands.
Harry said: “The completion of the letting of EMP House to Australian natural beauty company BWX Ltd illustrates the strength of the commercial property market in the Midlands.”
Harry mentioned that the uncertainty regarding the ongoing pandemic did not affect the deal from going ahead.
“Securing BWX as tenants is a huge boost for the local area during these uncertain times and with award-winning brands such as natural skincare brand, Sukin, EMP House is likely to provide an excellent base for BWX’s continued expansion in the UK.
“Leicester and Leicestershire are becoming increasingly popular locations for high calibre occupiers, such as BWX, thanks to exceptional transport connectivity to both the national motorway network and national rail.”
Harry explained that Wards are still experiencing high levels of enquiries across all of their sectors regarding properties.
He also believes that the Midlands property market shall see a “rapid ‘bounce back’.”
Kathryn Cunningham, General Manager at BWX, commented on the purchase of EMP House for the beauty brand.
Kathryn said: “As a natural beauty business with wellness at the heart of our core values, a semi-rural location with countryside views is important to us.
“Stoney Stanton is in close proximity to key retail customers, with easy access to London and the M1 motorway.
Cunningham even told the Hinckley Free Press that due to the fact the property is light and airy, employees shall “finally have enough space for our lunchtime yoga classes!”.
