London Property

Clarksons, the world's leading shipping services group, is delighted to announce that it has signed a 15 year lease for a new flagship head office at Commodity Quay, St Katherine's Dock, London, commencing from the last quarter of 2014.

The state of the art new head office will be Clarksons main London trading base from mid 2015, following an extensive fit out.  The lease on the current head office, St Magnus House, Lower Thames Street, London will expire in December 2015.

Andi Case, CEO said "We are delighted to have signed on Commodity Quay. It is a great building in a great location and has particular resonance with the company, both having its roots firmly in shipping and commodities and being a high tech office. It will enable the next stage of Clarksons development and allow us to continue to offer a best in class service to our increasingly diverse customer base."
