A leading innovator in animal health research and development has commissioned Pave Aways to create its new UK headquarters in Shrewsbury.

Pathway Intermediates will move from the Atcham Industrial Estate, where it occupies three separate units, to Harlescott Business Park once work is completed. The firm has several sites in Shropshire including Bishops Castle and Clun as well as offices in the USA, China and Thailand. It is owned by Korean based Easy Bio Inc.

The £611k contract is scheduled to take 18 weeks and includes the refurbishment and internal reconfiguration of the existing office and industrial unit to form new offices and associated works.

Pave Aways Managing Director Steven Owen said: “This is an exciting development for Pathway Intermediates and we’re happy to be working in partnership to deliver its vision for a modern and practical HQ that will allow the firm to grow and increase its market share.

“Work is already well underway using our local supply chain and we look forward to completing the project on budget and on time as befits our reputation.”

“The new headquarters will streamline our business operations and offer us the capacity to expand and take on new staff in the near future. We are pleased to be working with Pave Aways and are delighted to be taking the next step in the journey of Pathway Intermediates.”
