SharkNinja continues UK expansion with flagship office at Battersea Power Station
SharkNinja has taken 25,000 square feet of new office space at Switch House Hall at Battersea Power Station.
Currently expanding in the UK, the vacuum and home appliance specialist will start fitting out the space this spring and employees will move in when the power station officially opens to the public in September.
People working in the space will mainly be part of product teams spanning engineering and design. The office is expected to be capable of seating 190 people, with 135 at launch, and will provide SharkNinja with significantly larger workshop facilities with with space for testing. Engineering laboratories will comprise around 50% of the site and there will also be state-of-the-art development salons, kitchens and other facilities.
The London team will drive forward SharkNinja’s global development of products across all categories.
SharkNinja’s vice president and general manager of London, Lauren McMullan said: “SharkNinja’s continued growth is driven by the success of new product launches, alongside the dedication, commitment and skill of our fantastic global teams. We are continuing to invest in our workforce in order to spur further international expansion, and our latest acquisition of office space in the capital is reflective of our growth in recent years.
“The state-of-the-art facilities in our new Battersea Power Station site will allow our staff to continue driving innovation for SharkNinja and we are excited to welcome everyone to the new office space which is focused on encouraging collaboration and productivity.”
Other companies taking office space at Battersea Power Station include the likes of Apple and The Engine Room.
Simon Murphy, chief executive of Battersea Power Station Development Company, said: “We are thrilled to welcome SharkNinja to Battersea Power Station, another global brand and innovator which will add to the sense of dynamism, creativity and invention in this new riverside neighbourhood.
“2022 is a seminal year for the project with the Power Station opening to the public for the first time in history from September. With a further 200,000 square feet of office space launching later this year, and our very own tube station opening last September, Battersea Power Station is fast-becoming a highly sought after new office location for London.”
