Head Office expansion supports growth

As Manta’s team continues to grow so too must our office space! We’ve recently completed an extensive refurbishment of our head office at historic Botley Mills.

Nestling along the River Hamble, Manta Maritime’s picturesque home is in the Grade II-listed former flour mill. Built in 1750, incredibly the milling tradition has been evident on this site hundreds of years earlier, and is even mentioned in The Doomsday Book.

Perhaps it’s not surprising therefore, that modernising our office space around such notable industrial heritage took a considered approach. However, we are spectacularly proud of the results and now have a larger workspace which, whilst contemporary, is sensitive to its historic surroundings.
