Fiskars UK relocates to Birmingham
From the end of the month, the Masshouse McLaren building, one of Birmingham's tallest structures and situated in the city's business area, will be the company's new home. The offices will include specifically designed demonstration areas and interactive product displays to showcase not just Fiskars garden and kitchen tools including scissors, but other global brands: Gerber, Iittala and Royal Copenhagen.

UK managing director and regional director for the company's south west European business, John Grayson, said of the move from its current premises in Nottingham: "This is an exciting time to be part of one of the world's oldest and yet most contemporary companies. We have been through an extensive development programme in recent years and the opportunity to now reposition Fiskars UK in such an accessible location, within a welcoming and professional office environment that befits the quality of our brands and company values, is just tremendous."

Customers of the company will experience no change in service, as distribution will continue to be managed from the company's local partner warehouse in Derbyshire and will be notified directly regarding telephone and address contact details. All email and electronic processing will remain unchanged.

Established in 1649 as an ironworks in a small Finnish village, Fiskars has grown to be a leading global supplier of consumer products for the home, garden and outdoors. Its products are available in more than 60 countries. The group's key international brands are Fiskars, Iittala and Gerber.
