A COMPANY that takes millions of sightseers on open-top bus tours in cities around the world has made its new home in Redditch.
The move puts City Sightseeing Worldwide in position for fresh growth after expanding for the last two decades to run bus tours in more than 100 destinations worldwide, across more than 30 countries on five continents.
Moving from its former home in Henley-on-Arden, the company has taken 1,800 sq ft of space at Suite 8 in the prominent Grosvenor House in the centre of Redditch, in a deal handled by Ian Parker of leading commercial property agency John Truslove.
City Sightseeing’s Andy Lawrence said: “We had outgrown our previous home and needed bigger offices, but Redditch also has a demographic that fits the bill for us in terms of future recruitment of high quality staff.
“There is clearly a lot of ambition for new development in the area, which was also attractive to us.
“As an international operation we employ more than 3,400 people worldwide and Grosvenor House is a strategic location for our business. As we continue to expand globally, that is going to mean more growth for us here in Redditch.”
City Sightseeing Worldwide is the world’s leading operator of open-top, double decker buses that provide hop-on hop-off tours.
Last year it handled more than 14million customers.
