European roofing giant is latest firm to move to Reading’s Thames Tower
A giant in the world of roofing has set up a new office in Reading’s Thames Tower.
BMI, the largest manufacturer of flat and pitched roofing and waterproofing solutions throughout Europe, has taken the whole of the 13th floor of the 14-storey office building beside Reading Station.
The company’s office space totals 14,000 square feet.
The move means just two floors remain vacant at the building in Station Road.
James Silver, managing director of Landid, which manages the building, said: “This again proves Reading’s new office offer is increasingly attracting the big players.
“Thames Tower is a prime example of how offices, in transport hubs, like Reading , are proving to be a new and refreshing offer for UK and global business.
“We look forward to welcoming BMI to Thames Tower, a thriving building which is having a positive effect on the town and the local economy.”
BMI is expanding its business from London to Reading, in the hope of attracting new talent and business.
The company joins the likes of Ericsson, which has the eight, ninth and 14th floors.
Other occupiers include HSBC, the Make-a-Wish Foundation and MNBL (Mobile Broadband Network Limited), international recruitment firm Austen Fraser and professional services firm BDO.
The building was recently bought by Spelthorne Borough Council in Surrey in a £285 million deal.
