Barrus will be relocating to a 16-acre site, enabling the company to consolidate its operations under one roof and remain in Bicester, Oxfordshire. The site forms part of the commercial space located on the edge of the unique Graven Hill Development to the south of Bicester, formerly owned by the MoD.
Barrus markets and distributes products across other sectors including marine and industrial.
Barrus originally moved from London to Bicester in 1977.
Managing director Robert Muir said: "We are delighted to announce our exciting relocation plans in this, our centennial year. Our growth plans have been constrained by the size of our premises here in Launton Road and it has always been our intention to expand if possible our business within the Oxfordshire area.
"We are looking forward to the beginning of a new and exciting chapter for Barrus, and integrating into the new village community within the innovative, Graven Hill Development. In addition to securing the future of our existing, loyal workforce, I am confident that we will be creating more job opportunities over the next few years in support of our long-term, strategic business growth. As our centennial strapline states, ‘We are celebrating our first 100-years, gearing up for the next."
Graven Hill Village Development Company managing director Karen Curtin said: "We are delighted to welcome Barrus as the lead occupier for the Graven Hill site."
Barrus will occupy the new site in 2019 when the Phase 2 land transfer from MoD to Graven Hill is due to complete. Barrus is working with Graven Hill Village Development Company to see if it is possible to secure earlier occupancy.
