Elekta confirms £4.2 million investment in Manor Royal
Ltd, the world-leading manufacturer of treatment solutions for cancer and brain
disorders, which has had its UK premises at Manor Royal since 1987, has now purchased
the old Gateway site on Manor Royal.
This landmark site is adjacent to Elekta’s UK head office on Fleming Way, and overlooks the roundabout at the junction of Fleming Way and London Road.
The two hectare (five acre) site was bought in a £4.2 million deal handled by property adviser Vail Williams from owner-manager and developer of industrial property company Segro.
“The Manor Royal site is perfect for Elekta, as it gives us access to world-leading regional expertise, making the site an automatic solution for our expansion plans,” says Bill Yaeger, executive vice president Elekta Oncology. “We are delighted to be making this massive investment in the local economy and have specific and significant plans for further investment in the site, which will effectively future proof Elekta’s commitment to Crawley and the South East for many years to come.”
In September last year, Elekta - an employer of over 800 people in Crawley - received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2013 for International Trade. In March, the firm was among four Manor Royal businesses to win an award at the prestigious annual Gatwick Diamond Business Awards (see Manor Royal companies win major business awards), clinching the award for Supply Chain Excellence in recognition of its engagement supporting local industry. The company also won the Made in the South East awards and an Institute of Export award.
Elekta will reveal further plans for the site in coming months.
