Keningtons assist Zimmer Biomet in Bridgend18 March

When leading medical device manufacturers, Zimmer Biomet were looking to relocate their offices in Bridgend, they contacted Kenington' Swindon office for assistance. The connection is that their UK Head Office is already located in Swindon and Jeremy Sutton has advised them on various matters over the years.

The acquisition in Bridgend involved an initial search and viewings of selected properties and finally agreeing terms for 6,353 sq ft of refurbished office accommodation in a property known as Red Dragon House. The ability to work within tight timescales was key with this instruction and the whole process from the initial search to lease completion took just over 3 months and this included Christmas and a 4 week period waiting for the draft lease to arrive!
