Wirtgen Group UK, one of the UK’s leading providers of construction equipment, has officially opened its new UK headquarters in Newark, Nottinghamshire.
The £12.5 million investment includes a new 5500 square metre head office building to support the continued growth of the business, which now employs over 120 people in the UK. The 9-acre site also houses a new workshop, capable of providing maintenance and repairs for the company’s largest machines, and a spare parts distribution warehouse that will stock approximately 8000 different items. Two new training rooms will give access to the most modern facilities for over 400 people a year, and a new outdoor centre will enable customers to undertake practical training on the company’s road pavers and planers.
Commenting on the new headquarters, Wirtgen UK’s managing director, Paul Holmes said: “This fantastic new facility demonstrates our commitment to continued growth in the UK across all our machines types and brands. Customers will benefit from a greatly enhanced spare parts delivery service and a significant increase in our repairs and workshop capacity. The close proximity to our previous office has enabled us to retain all of our outstanding team and we look forward to welcoming customers to site and realising the opportunity that this state-of-the-art facility provides.”
