Building work has begun on Geberit’s new 22,500sq ft headquarters in Warwick.
The expansion follows the sanitaryware manufacturer’s acquisition of Twyford Bathrooms last year. The new premises will be twice the size of Geberit’s current offices and will be situated on the Tournament Fields business park in Warwick, adjacent to the current building.
The ground floor will be home to the Geberit and Twyford Training Academy, where customers can attend free workshops, and the second floor will host Geberit’s central operations. The building will also include a 400sq m showroom featuring the latest bathroom designs and technology.
The new development will also create 30 new jobs across marketing, customer services, finance and technical support within the business. It is expected to open in January 2017.
“The building work on the new Geberit and Twyford headquarters marks an exciting and important milestone for the new business,“ said Geberit UK managing director Mark Larden. “As a centrally-based location, it makes good sense to choose the existing Geberit site in Warwick for the development. Doing so means we are able to remain accessible to our customer base, with good transport links close by and with excellent facilities that will future-proof the company and support our significant growth plans in the UK.“
