Lingerie, apparel and swimwear brand Lounge Underwear has relocated its
headquarters and warehouse space from Bromsgrove to Solihull after
reporting “huge growth” in its first three years of trading.

has relocated to a 36,741 square foot unit at Connexion in Blythe Valley
Park, Solihull, upsizing from its 7,000 square foot space in
Bromsgrove, Worcestershire.

while also providing ample space for future growth both in employees and
stock levels. At present, Lounge employs 27 people but this is set
to increase as departments are developed out further.

Jack Humphreys, Lounge’s operations manager, said in a statement that
the move was about “future-proofing the business” – creating room for its
“ambitious growth plans” and being in a location that will attract the best
people to join the Lounge family.
