Solotech UK: The Big Move Commences

Following record results and continued year on year growth, Solotech announced in January 2023 it would be relocating its UK headquarters to a new state of the art facility in Blythe Valley near Solihull.

Since taking the keys back in January, the facilities team at Solotech have been working flat out making the new warehouse ‘fit for purpose’. Being a new build, the site at Blythe Valley was literally an empty shell so much of the initial fit-out has centred around infrastructure: lighting, power, IT, mezzanine floors and even office walls.

The move to the new building will be in phases, ensuring the day-to-day operations of the business remain unaffected. Phase 1 will see the Live Operations warehouse team as the first to move. This will include the company’s extensive hire inventory, with all tour equipment preparation that would have previously come out of Redditch now taking place in Blythe Valley.

Managing the logistics of the move has been Solotech HQ General Manager Rich Rowley: “It’s no secret that the summer is our busiest time, so it was important to prioritise equipment preparation as the first department to go. If we hadn’t been able to complete it now, it would have been September before the opportunity presented itself again.”

Rich continued, “Operationally we will be up and running on 16th May so an important message to all our hire customers and logistics partners is that all deliveries and collections from this date are from the new premises. The new address is: Unit 1, Connexion II, Blythe Gate, Solihull B90 8DX.  Being a brand new building, many sat-navs are yet to catch up – if you use B90 8AA you can’t miss us!”

UK MD Bryce Jewell commented, “We’re delighted to take the next step on this journey. We had simply outgrown our existing premises. The Blythe HQ will provide the platform that we require to continue Solotech’s development in the UK and take us to the next level. It will provide our staff with the state-of-the-art facilities they require to deliver the levels of service our customers expect from us.”
