Hilti to join growing Circle Square neighbourhood on Oxford Road Corridor

Hilti, a multinational construction equipment and software services specialist, has confirmed its headquarters relocation to No.1 Circle Square.

“Circle Square is one of the most sought-after places in Manchester for office space owing to its location and access to the city’s finest talent”.

Matt Lee, Bruntwood SciTech Head of Commercial

The company will occupy 42,000 sq ft office space, moving its 200-strong team from Trafford Park into the second, third and fourth floors of No.1 Circle Square. The move is expected to take place in December 2020.

Matias Järnefelt, managing director for Hilti in Northern Europe and Great Britain, had considered many office locations, but felt that none had met their requirements better than No.1 Circle Square.

“The move marks our commitment to Manchester with its international airport, reputation for innovation, thriving construction industry and great universities,” he added. “As the hub for Northern Europe, a more modern head office will allow us to better position Hilti on the international jobs market and attract global talent to come and work with our world class team.”

Matt Lee, head of commercial for Bruntwood SciTech – Manchester, said: Hilti choosing Circle Square for their new home after more than 30 years in Trafford is testament to the retail and amenities on offer there as well as Symphony Park, the first and largest new city park for generations.”

Hilti will join other confirmed customers Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Mills & Reeve at No.1 Circle Square.
