Oakley Wine Agencies Move Office after 20 Years
officebroker.com’s Account Manager Jon Wigmore has helped to find a new office in Colchester for Oakley Wine Agencies – a specialist wine merchant for Portugal and Northwest Spain – which marks the company’s first office move since 1990.
Oakley Wine Agencies are an established Essex-based company that source and import wine from Portugal and Northwest Spain, sometimes from locations as far afield as Brazil, and supply the produce for major high-end clients including specialist wine shop chains and mail order sellers.
According to owner Nick Oakley, their existing offices at a “little farmyard hideaway” in Essex are simply too small, with no room for further expansion. This prompted Nick to contact officebroker.com to find a new office that would offer a more convenient location for the team, ideally closer to Colchester, and which would be large enough for future growth.
Jon Wigmore, officebroker.com Account Manager for several UK locations including Essex, discussed several options with Nick before arranging tours at two properties that best matched the company’s requirements. One stood out in particular – a former mill at Colchester’s Hythe Quay, on the south-east edge of Colchester – which offers plenty of space and bags of character too.
Nick describes the building (pictured) as having “rustic appeal”, which suits their needs “perfectly” and has plenty of space for expansion.
Just a short walk from Hythe train station and close to Colchester’s main road networks, the building turned out to be ideal for Oakley Wine Agencies and the company are now making preparations to move out of their old offices, their home for over 20 years.
Commenting on the office search process, Nick said: “Thanks go out to the highly efficient Jonathan Wigmore of officebroker.com who tracked down this new unit, which fits our requirements perfectly.”
