Kellogg’s has announced it is to relocate its UK headquarters from Old Trafford to MediaCityUK from January 2018.
The company’s current Talbot Road site will close at the start of next year, with all 420 employees moving to Orange Tower at MediaCityUK where the cereal and snacks giant will take three floors.
The Talbot Road site was designed and built especially for Kellogg’s and opened its doors in November 1990. It houses staff who run the company’s UK and Irish sales and marketing business as well as support functions for its European operations, including those involved in research, food development, marketing, sales, human resources and finance. All will be relocated to MediaCityUK.
Kellogg’s UK and Ireland managing director Dave Lawlor said: “It’s time to move on to an office and location which better reflects where we want to take our business in the future. MediaCityUK offers our employees outstanding facilities and transport links, while allowing us to create a totally new and upgraded work environment from a blank sheet of paper.
”We’ve been proud to call Greater Manchester our UK home for decades so incredibly pleased to be staying within the city-region, just a short distance away from our current office.”
The company, which employs more than 1,000 people across the city-region, also owns and operates a cereal factory in Trafford Park. The factory is not affected and will remain in the Trafford.
