Security specialist secures letting in Jewellery Quarter
Commercial property agents Siddall Jones have let one of the landmark buildings in Birmingham’s “Mayfair” in the Jewellery Quarter.
Security solutions provider Suprema Systems UK has taken 12 St Pauls Square on a five year lease.
The company is moving from smaller premises at Branston Court in the Jewellery Quarter.
Ed Siddall-Jones, managing director of Siddall Jones, said: “We are still seeing significant activity in self-contained office buildings and offices under 5,000 sq ft across Birmingham, and St Pauls Square is recognised as one of the most popular and prestigious locations – the ‘Mayfair’ of the city’.”
The fully refurbished, 2,700 sq ft office building is a Georgian building with parking to the rear.
Mr Siddall-Jones added: “The property has been refurbished to an exceptionally high standard and retains many character features including a basement bar and events space.
“St Pauls Square is a particular favourite among those seeking attractive office space just outside the central city business core, as it provides the character and charm of the square with all the city amenities, shops, bars and restaurants a short walk away.
“Siddall Jones has a particularly strong foothold and representation in the Jewellery Quarter and we are delighted to have secured such a prestigious international tenant for our client in this latest deal.”
Suprema Systems UK is part of the global Suprema Inc, which is headquartered in South Korea. It supplies access control systems to businesses, including biometric readers.
The UK office in Birmingham currently employs ten staff, with plans to recruit more employees.
Jamie McMillen, managing director of Suprema Systems UK, said: “We had outgrown our offices in Branston Court, having already recruited significantly in 2022, so we were on the lookout for more space.
“Our new offices give us high end, up-to-the-minute, refurbished office space in a period building in the delightful setting of St Pauls Square.”
He added: “Having been in the UK security market for six years now and seen exceptional growth in the last two of those, despite the pandemic, Suprema Inc and Suprema Systems UK see this is as an opportunity to reinforce their investment in the UK market.
“12 St Pauls Square gives us the chance to showcase Suprema and our enterprise product in an impressive workspace, and a vibrant city that continues to develop. It also provides space to grow as a team, as we continue to invest in resource, and also reward the hard work that the current team has done to get us to this position.
“We are extremely excited to be able to start 2023 by inviting our loyal and prospective customers to 12 St Pauls to see Suprema innovation first hand, sharing in both the journey with Suprema and Birmingham as a city.”
Law firm Wallace Robinson & Morgan acted for the landlord, and Suprema Inc was advised by its in-house legal team.
