New Geberit head office opens for business
Local dignataries, company directors and employees gathered to mark the official opening of the new Geberit UK head office in Warwick last Friday, 31 March. The purpose-built facility, less than a mile from the centre of historic Warwick, on Tournament Fields, is the new UK base for over 150 Geberit staff.
Having been based in Warwick for over eight years, Geberit's move to larger premises is part of an exciting period of growth for Geberit and Twyford. With a spacious office covering more than 2,000sq.m, Geberit employees benefit from a modern and inspiring working environment. The new building also boasts a 400sq.m showroom featuring the new Geberit Bathroom Collection which encompasses bathroom sanitaryware and furniture, Twyford bathrooms, Geberit AquaClean shower toilets, plus the company's sanitary and piping systems displayed within an inspiring environment.
A new purpose-built Training Academy offers customers free training modules covering the full breadth of Geberit's product ranges. This facility enables installers to benefit from hands-on training, complete with a two-storey installation Tower, encouraging installers to get to grips with the latest piping systems and sanitary solutions, showcasing good and bad plumbing practice.
"We have grown dramatically since we moved to the area almost 10 years ago, with the new building marking the beginning of the next chapter of this growth," explains Mark Larden, managing director Geberit UK & Ireland. "It is a very exciting time for Geberit and Twyford, our staff and our customers and we are looking forward to what the future holds. "
Speaking during the opening ceremony, the Mayor of Warwick said: "Events such as this one are important because of what they symbolise for the local community and for a wider audience, in terms of economic stability, growth and opportunities for employment. I wish Geberit every success for the future."
