Gymshark launches new UK HQ

Sportswear brand Gymshark has launched new 42,000 sq ft headquarters in Solihull.

The office, created by design company Oktra, has an onsite cinema, yoga studios and treatment rooms.

It has the capacity to house up to 450 new staff members and the business plans to take on 150 new employees in the next 12 months.

The business was founded by Ben Francis in 2012 and is on track to hit £100m turnover this year.

Steve Hewitt, Gymshark’s CEO said: “GSHQ marks a key moment in the company’s history. Gymshark will continue to dedicate itself to creating truly inspirational fitness clothing. Not only will it create further jobs for the Midlands and UK economies, it also ensures the company remains at the top of its game, delivering high-quality, market-leading products to its global customer base, time and time again.

“It will provide our staff with the most inspirational working environment, whilst opening our doors to welcome the brightest talent. We are proud of our Birmingham roots and strive to be a catalyst in the city’s ongoing transformation – starting with the launch of GSHQ.”
