German bathroom giant Hansgrohehas officially opened the doors to its new UK HQ in Warwick.

The purpose-built head office was opened by Hansgrohe Group CEO, Hans Juergen Kalmbach and UK & Ireland MD Jay Phillips (pictured right and left respectively).

The brand’s move to the new HQ represents £5 million investment and is described as a key landmark in the company’s strategic growth plans. At 40,000 sq ft capacity, the Warwick premises are more than double the size of Hansgrohe’s previous UK HQ in Surrey.

As well as a 4,000 sq ft showroom space – The Water Studio – showcasing the Hansgrohe and Axor brands, the new HQ also houses an Installer Academy which will offer technical support and training to the installer community.

Jay Phillips, Hansgrohe UK & Ireland MD, commented: “It is a real pleasure to open the doors of our HQ and officially call Warwick our new home.

“The central location, just off the M40, means we are more accessible than ever to our customers. And, by more than doubling the size of our previous HQ in Surrey, we can have everything available under one roof, from a spacious showroom and training, to warehousing and distribution. This will ensure we are able to best meet the needs of our busy customers and support them with their business.

“We recently expanded our product portfolio to ensure we can provide full bathroom solutions, and, in the coming years, we have ambitious plans to take the company further forward through continued product innovation and market leadership.

“This significant investment in our state-of-the-art new head office is a vital part of making these plans a reality.”

CEO Hans Juergen Kalmbach added: “The UK is one of the most important markets on our agenda. We already have a solid retail network with a huge amount of potential. We wanted to be closer to our retail partners and to be able to support them in an even better way and the new HQ in Warwick is a big step towards that and also shapes our future strategy in the UK. Our next level ambition is to set the benchmark for tomorrow and grow above market level. We need to stay ambitious and committed.”
