AX confirms Fort Dunlop move

AX is moving into a new home at the Fort Dunlop building in Birmingham as it continues its next phase of growth in 2023.

The leading provider of accident aftercare services and intelligent fleet management technology will gradually migrate to its new headquarters from March, and it will be fully operational from April 2023.

Scott Hamilton-Cooper, managing director of AX Automotive, said: “Collectively we are very much looking forward to transitioning to our new home at Fort Dunlop. It’s an impressive building full of history, epitomising our approach whereby we learn from the past but also look forwards and innovate.

“Ahead of the decision, we chose a consultative approach with colleagues from across the business and the outcome is that we will evolve again from becoming a fully remote workforce during the Covid-19 pandemic to a hybrid operation now. This enables our colleagues to enjoy the benefits of flexible working while taking advantage of co-working, including aspects which boost productivity and collaboration, foster company culture and support wellbeing.”

He continued: “The move will also enable us to support our colleagues with enhanced training and development, communication and performance management. Colleague wellbeing, career development and collaboration have all been central to the decisions that we have made around our new headquarters.”
