John Truslove helps Clay Knox continue to grow

Commercial property agents John Truslove have let the entire first floor of one of Bromsgrove’s flagship office buildings. International tax consultants Clay Knox have moved from their former offices in Ipsley Court, Redditch, into 5,925 sq ft at St John’s House in Bromsgrove town centre. The letting, on behalf of Quartz Investments, comes after significant refurbishment to the building which has provided flexible open plan accommodation, new air conditioning, a new raised access data floor and includes on-site parking. Ian Parker, joint managing director of John Truslove, said: “This is a significant letting for Bromsgrove and the West Midland and proves once again the value of investing in targeted and focused refurbishment, sensitive to the ever-changing demands of the market.” The move comes as Clay Knox continues to expand. Launched in 2008, this is the third move Clay Knox has made, driven by growth. From offices in Studley with 14 employees, the business moved into Ipsley Court in Redditch in 2010, growing to 28 employees. The latest move was driven by further growth as the firm now numbers 40 staff and needed more space. Clay Knox provides accountancy and advisory services to the film, music and sport industries. With its head office now in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, and offices in Pinewood Studios and Mayfair in London, Clay Knox advises many high profile individuals and businesses, both in the UK and globally. In 2016, Clay & Associates, as it was originally known, became part of the Knox Group of companies and rebranded in 2017 to Clay Knox. The owner of the property, Quartz Investments, is an innovative investment company based in Stratford-upon-Avon which specialises in acquiring properties where the considerable experience of the directors can add value to the asset. Tim Haslam said: “With the arrival of Clay Knox, St John’s House is now fully let. The original accommodation was very dated and our investment in refurbishment has clearly paid off.” Joint agents were KWB and law firm Squire Patton Boggs advised Quartz Investment with Harrison Clark Rickerbys acting for Clay Knox.
