Building work begins on new Geberit headquarters
Published: 10 March, 2016
Following its acquisition of Twyford Bathrooms last year and as part of Geberit’s ambitious growth plans, building work has begun on the manufacturer‘s new headquarters.
Geberit moved to its current bespoke built offices just seven years ago and is now building a headquarters that is twice the size. A significant investment for the company, the new head office is conveniently situated on the Tournament Fields business park, adjacent to the company’s current building.
The ground floor of the new building will be home to the Geberit and Twyford Training Academy where customers can attend free workshops to gain hands on experience with the latest plumbing and piping systems. There will also be a showroom featuring the latest bathroom designs and technology, while the second floor will host Geberit’s central operations.
The new development, designed by Warwick-based Corstorphine Wright Architects, will see the creation of 30 new jobs across marketing, customer service, finance and technical support areas of the business. An official groundbreaking ceremony took place at the site of the new building in February, with the new headquarters due for completion 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.“
