Facilities management firm Assist Group will set up a new ‘Assist Hub’ in St Helens after securing a Mere Grange Business Park office.
The firm has signed up to occupy 3,090 sq ft at the site, which investment company Squarestone Growth acquired from Network Space in 2018.
Commenting on the deal Dave Dargan, CEO of Assist Group, says: “Our central offices have been in St Helens since 2010 as well as a large regional operations centre in nearby Eccleston, we are really pleased that we have been able to select a suitable location for our Assist Hub within St Helens and to continue to create jobs and invest in the local community.
“The hub will be focused on providing industry leading customer care and responsive services for our customers as well as working to support our people across the UK and Ireland in delivering great services.”
Simon Roddam of commercial agency BE Group, which has been appointed a joint agent for the 10-building site alongside B1 Real Estate, adds: “The St Helens office market has remained active for some time now, with existing local occupiers and start-ups providing the lion’s share of demand.
“Assist Group are an established facilities management business who were already operating from St Helens servicing the region. Attracting Assist Group is testament to the quality of the buildings at Mere Grange and its closely linked position to the M62.”
