Thriving commercial heating specialists Ignis group move to new premises, aided by John Truslove

Ignis Group Ltd called on property experts John Truslove to help secure larger premises to base its head office and facilitate continued growth after its workforce doubled in size through the recent pandemic.

Ignis Group maintains over 1,000 commercial buildings throughout the Midlands and surrounding counties, carrying out service, maintenance and installation of commercial heating and hot water systems.

With demand from existing customers and gaining new clients on a weekly basis, the firm soon outgrew its previous base in Moons Moat, Redditch.

Ignis director Terry O’Neill said: “With the rapid growth of the business over the last four years, we knew very early on we would outgrow our original offices in Redditch. After a long search aided by the team at John Truslove, we finally found our new base in Studley, Warwickshire.”

The company has taken a five year lease on the 2,987 sq ft premises at 3B High Street, Studley, which provides offices, workshops/stores, secure yard and separate staff parking.

Mr O’Neill added “The premises are a great match for our business operations and ideally located on the Worcestershire/Warwickshire Boarder. The team at John Truslove were great to work with and we have built a great relationship with them.”

Ignis Group is now one on the biggest independent commercial heating companies in the Midlands. Its customer base includes premiership football clubs and local manufacturing giants. The core business lies in education currently maintaining over 200 schools and universities throughout Worcestershire and the Midlands.

Mr O’Neill said: “Ignis was founded four years ago by me and fellow director, John Mackin. The business has flourished year on year, and we now have a team of 20 staff.

“Many of our clients, which include NHS, care homes and schools, remained open during the recent pandemic which allowed our growth to continue.

“We have built a strong reputation over the last four years with the hard work and high standards produced by our team. The premises will enable us to continue moving forward with the business and support our future ambitions.”

Ian Parker, joint managing director at commercial property agents John Truslove, said: “Ignis is an ideal tenant for our landlord client – an ambitious and growing company that has cemented itself in the area with its large local customer base. We wish them further success in their new home.

“Studley is a thriving village that is home to a growing number of businesses, and we are seeing property snapped up rapidly. Fortunately, our unrivalled portfolio of properties across the area means we are always in a position to help any growing business.”

Nishad Akram from Astwood Law represented Ignis Group in the tenancy agreement.
