Expanding catering hygiene experts create 12 new jobs and take bigger Redditch premises

When Fusion Hygiene won a brace of major national catering contracts, the Redditch-based firm turned to commercial property agents John Truslove to secure bigger new premises.

The company, part of the NGW Group catering supplies group, has seen its workforce almost double in the past year after new contracts with both the Costa Coffee chain and Raymond Blanc’s Brasserie Blanc restaurants.

To handle the increase in demand, NGW has now taken additional space with the 6,696 sq ft Unit 6 on Colemeadow Road, on the North Moons Moat industrial estate, in a deal secured by Ben Truslove, joint managing director at John Truslove.

It is the fourth property deal for NGW in the last three years, fuelled by continuing growth at the business.

Richard Ng-Zeederberg, director at NGW, said: “Our eco-friendly approach is very attractive to our customers, supplying restaurants with chemical dispensers that are a sustainable, ecologically friendly alternative to pre-mixed chemicals.

“This offers considerable savings and reduces the amount of plastic waste, but crucially we provide a one-stop shop for all their hygiene, chemical and packaging needs.

“We have shown we can provide both quantity and quality, securing work with a large national chain in Costa Coffee while also meeting the needs of Brasserie Blanc.

“In what is quite a saturated market, we have made ourselves a supplier of choice, and as a result our workforce has growth to 22 from around a dozen a year ago.

“We always go to John Truslove as they always make sure we find the premises that we need.

“They understand our business and we will be working with them again as we continue to expand.

Ben Truslove added: “We have built a strong relationship Richard and the NGW team over the last few years, making sure this fast-growing business has access to the property it needs.

“Working with our extensive network of property owners means we can ensure that both expanding companies and our landlord tenants all benefit.

“We look forward to working with NGW in the future as its operations, such as Fusion Hygiene, continue to win business nationwide.”
