A decade at City Business Centre for Amorim UK

Now the UK operation of a world leader in the cork business, Amorim UK is a well established local company that has been based in City Business Centre, Horsham, for ten years. Previously, it occupied premises in Crawley then Partridge Green, and was first bought by a Swedish family firm before being taken over by the Portuguese Amorim Group over 20 years ago.

The trade market for the company’s cork and rubber/cork products is nationwide across diverse industries including manufacturing and construction, so Horsham’s good rail links make it a good location for Amorim UK. Two of the team live locally and work at City Business Centre full time; others work remotely, using the office as a base when they need to. With overseas associates visiting regularly too, the proximity to Gatwick airport is obviously a bonus when it comes to being part of a European-wide operation.

“We must be amongst the longest-standing customers at City Business Centre – we were here even before it was taken on by Needspace? eight years ago!”, said Amorim’s Accounts Manager Carolyn Harberd. “But when our previous lease came to an end, the size of the space here was right for us and we’ve had no reason to move since. Needspace? were very accommodating when we wanted to create a separate meeting room within our unit, and our business runs very well from here.”
