A leading health and beauty distributor is moving its headquarters to Banbury after receiving council backing.
Cherwell District Council has given a range of support to the fast-growing DCS Group, which reported a £24.8 million increase in sales last year. DCS’s investment in Banbury is expected to boost the local economy and bring a potential 220 jobs to the town.
The distributor behind Gillette, Colgate and Unilever had help from members of the Cherwell-M40 Investment Partnership (CHIP) to find its new base, the former Hella building on Noral Way. The council is a leading member of the partnership and has supported DCS with operational issues and introductions to local business groups and landowners.
“Banbury is fast becoming a leading centre for distribution, with large companies coming to realise the benefits of basing themselves in a town with fantastic access to Birmingham, London and Oxford.
“We are happy to have helped facilitate this move, which will return the former Hella building to use. Cherwell has resisted pressure to allow housing to be built on the site, insisting that it be used to provide employment.
“We are now pleased to have this position vindicated, thanks to the investment in Banbury by DCS and the hard work of our officers.”
“We are very grateful to Cherwell District Council for their help having found our new site in Banbury. They have been very positive regarding the jobs that we will bring to the area and fast to respond to planning applications and any queries we have had. This support is exceptional in our experience.”
DCS plans to move around 220 staff to the new base, three times the size of its current Stratford-upon-Avon site, in April. DCS will be continuing to run its manufacturing operation in Stratford-upon-Avon.
CHIP is a partnership between Cherwell, local commercial property agents and local businesses. The council’s involvement in the group focusses on helping provide high-quality industrial and commercial premises for companies located in North Oxfordshire.
