Capita fit for Lingfield Point!
Capita will set up a base at the business park later this year after agreeing terms for 42,000 sq ft of space to accommodate around 450 of its staff.
Eddie Humphries, Estate Manager, said: “Capita is a great service provider and we feel that fits hand-in-glove with our ethos of customer service - from the fabulous on-site facilities to 24 hour concierge service.
“We are looking forward to welcoming Capita. They will find everything they need on their doorstep – which is in fact why they chose to come here!”
Dominic Moore, Asset Management Director of Clearbell, owners of Lingfield Point, said: “This letting expedites the continued creative conversion of the former factory buildings into high-spec, high-quality office space.
“The fact we are attracting businesses of the calibre of Capita supports our ambitions to create a regional hub for business here.
“Capita will join a great business community which includes AMEC Foster Wheeler, Four Seasons Health Care, and the Student Loans Company.”
Clearbell has also recently invested in The Gates in Durham where it plans to regenerate the shopping centre to provide further amenities to the city.
Susan Ring, Chief Executive, Capita Employee Benefits, said:
We’re absolutely delighted with our decision to move our Darlington office to Lingfield Point.
“This move represents an exciting chapter for us and builds upon our centre of excellence for public sector pensions administration in Darlington, recently strengthened with the further extension of the Teachers’ Pension Scheme contract.
“We were looking to create a flagship site for our people in Darlington and Lingfield Point ticked all of the boxes.”
Chief Executive of Darlington Borough Council, Ada Burns, said: “It is great to see Lingfield Point continuing its expansion plans and being an important part of the thriving business investment in the town.”
David Jackson, of Jackson and Partners, the commercial property agents representing Lingfield Point said: “Lingfield Point offers great value to its customers in terms of the added value it brings through it creativity and service standard.”
MP for Darlington Jenny Chapman said: “I am delighted Capita has continued its commitment to Darlington, its move to Lingfield Point is a great addition to the site.”
Councillor Bill Dixon, Leader of Darlington Borough Council, said: “It’s excellent news that Capita has chosen to stay in Darlington and create a flagship office.
“The relocation to Lingfield Point strengthens the Borough’s reputation as great place to do business.”
