Premises will be twice the size of existing, adjacent HQ
Following its acquisition of Twyford Bathrooms in 2015, and as part of the company’s growth plans, Geberit has started work on a 22,500sqft headquarters, with completion expected on January 2017.
It will be twice the size of its current, adjacent premises in Warwick, which was built bespoke for Geberit seven years’ ago and span two floors.
The ground floor of the building will be home to the Geberit and Twyford Training Academy, where customers can attend free workshops to gain hands-on experience. In addition, it will also include a 400sqm showroom.
The second floor will host Geberit’s central operations, and the new development will see the addition of 30 jobs across marketing, customer service, finance and technical support.
Geberit UK managing director Mark Larden commented: “The building work on the new Geberit and Twyford headquarters marks an exciting and important milestone for the business.”
He continued: “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.”
