A company which creates bespoke fitness equipment and exercise spaces for the Armed Forces and a host of elite sports teams has moved to a new base in Nuneaton.
Indigo Fitness, which was formed in 1996, has recently completed its move to a new 20,000 sq ft facility at the 2.5 acre historic Co-Operative Society distribution centre after 15 years at its previous factory in Hinckley.
The move was sealed with the help of the Coventry and Warwickshire LEP Growth Hub, who assisted Managing Director Rob Coleman and Director Philip Littlewood in accessing crucial funding from the the European Regional Development Fund to pay for extensive renovation of the site.
Indigo Fitness has celebrated securing a number of major contracts this year, including a deal to supply physical training equipment to the Armed Forces for the next four years, as well as designing and building a performance gym for Middlesbrough FC.
MD Rob Coleman said: “Our business has been growing consistently for a long time now and this move gives us further opportunity to grow and expand for years to come.
“We have had to put a lot of effort into ensuring the site is suitable for us. Now we have everything up to scratch and ready to go and the improvements are clear.
“There is so much more space available to us now, so we can manufacture faster, develop new equipment concepts and in turn offer our clients a better service.
“The Growth Hub were crucial in assisting us with this move, as we had to deal with a lot of detailed planning applications and funding applications to help with the crucial renovation.”
The move has also seen a big improvement in terms of space for office staff with the company, which employs 30 people at present, but is looking to grow at its new home in the years to come.
Gary Thyeson, an account manager with the Coventry and Warwickshire LEP Growth Hub, said the move is a ‘big step forward’ for Indigo.
He said: “Indigo Fitness is a unique business with an incredible track record of success.
“Their move is a big step forward not just for current contracts but also for the future, they have space to grow and develop further now.
“We are very pleased to have been able to assist with this move, which breathes new life into a large and historic space and brings a major business to Nuneaton.”
