FTT prepares for future expansion with new Derby offices

Derby company and Rolls Royce supplier, FTT (UK) Ltd, has taken 3,500 sq ft at Cardinal Square, securing the future of the company in the city, which celebrates its 10th anniversary in the UK next year.

FTT (UK) Ltd, which is part of the Turbine Technologies division of US-based Kratos Defence & Security Solutions, joins Freeths, City Fibre, Randd, Bulkhead and the NHS at the popular Derby landmark office building.

Currently undergoing a £150,000 enhancement of its substantial internal courtyard which includes a water feature, greenery and seating areas to promote employee wellbeing, Nurton Developments has invested some £1.5 million in the offices over the course of the past three years.

Arturo Rutter, Managing Director of FTT, said the location, flexibility and quality of the space at Cardinal is ideal to accommodate the future expansion plans for the UK team.

“We’re hoping to grow our customer base and increase the team from 14 to possibly 40 or 50 people over the next few years and Derby is an important strategic location for us to achieve this and attract the labour-force we need including design and stress engineers.

“The offices are also near to our other facility in the city, a workshop and lab, and offer a high-quality working environment, with amenities close by which will also be important for attracting and retaining talent.

“Being a family founded business, the health and wellbeing of our team has always been important to us and we’re confident Cardinal Square is a positive move they’re all looking forward to, a place to secure our future for the next decade.”

David Dyas, asset manager at Nurton Developments, said he was pleased to welcome FTT to Cardinal Square.

“It’s been tough few years for businesses generally, however I’m pleased to say that Derby has shown great resilience and we’re delighted to still be bringing news of new occupiers with expansion plans in the city.

“FTT is a great name to add to the offices and our hands on approach means we get to know occupiers well and are able to work with them to accommodate future growth plans and ensure their success is retained in Derby.”
