Ready to turn the key

New state-of-the-art office building for TGW Limited in England. Exclusively designed for TGW, the new building represents TGW's colours, goals and values.
The year 2014 has been started in a new building for TGW Limited. The UK team moved into their new offices in Falcon Court, Market Harborough just a stone’s throw from their previous office.

With 12,000 square feet (more than 1,100 square metres) of office area in a modern two-storey building, the Falcon Court site supports the growth of TGW in the UK – more than 120 people will find their new working place here. “Two of our existing sites were consolidated in to this beautiful building that will help us develop further”, says Phil Steeds, Sales Director at TGW Limited. David Jenkinson, Financial Controller added that Falcon Court stresses the involvement in the local community stating, “The location of our office is of utmost importance: Many of our employees live locally either walking or cycling to work. For the last two years, the intake of apprentices were from local schools and colleges. This was one of the key requirements of our new office building”, he says. “However, we are very proud of the modern design of the building, which was created exclusively for TGW.”



TGW’s colours throughout the building


“We wanted to create an office environment that can be identified with TGW immediately. We are able to work with natural daylight through the glass panels which retain internal heat. There is a certain focus on sustainability, which is included in our core values”, Jenkinson adds.
Among the highlights are definitely the use of the TGW colour scheme throughout the walls and in the furnishings, the roof terrace, and the fact that one of TGW’s own automated storage and retrieval machines will be installed in an area at the front of the building serving as an archive facility.”

The project team for the interior of the new building was influenced by the TGW headquarters in Wels: there is also a fitness centre and a reception that looks similar to the one in headquarters.



Ready just before Christmas

At the beginning of December the building was handed over and just before Christmas the employees of TGW Limited were able to move. “It is always an exciting experience to move into a new location. This move is also special in terms of a new chapter for TGW Limited. This building demonstrates our growth, our success and our ambitions to become a local and international leading provider of materials handling solutions. This building is a milestone in the history of TGW Limited and I am sure, that there will be many more milestones attained at Falcon Court in the future”, Phil Steeds concludes.
