TGW Northern Europe has officially opened its new headquarters in Leicestershire, marking a milestone in the company’s development.
In 2013, TGW brought its operations in the Benelux and Scandinavia together with the UK to form TGW Northern Europe. TGW in the UK was established in 2007 with just three employees, today TGW Northern Europe employs 130 people and generated a sales turnover in excess of £70 million (83 million Euros, 116 million US Dollars) in 2012/2013, making it TGW’s second largest market.
Having outgrown its original UK offices in Market Harborough, the company decided to invest in the development of a purpose-designed 12,000 sq ft (1,100 m2) building, known as Falcon Court, within sight of the former office building. The modern two-storey building has been exclusively designed by architects to accommodate the needs of TGW’s employees including management, engineers and sales and marketing staff. Designed with an emphasis on sustainability, the building provides a modern and comfortable working environment and includes break out spaces, quiet working zones, a roof garden and a staff gymnasium.
In addition, a TGW Mustang Evolution mini-load automated storage and retrieval machine has been installed in the entrance lobby, where it will serve as a document repository.
Going forward there are plans to establish a TGW Academy to deliver best in class learning and development to the company’s employees. There is also scope for further expansion at the site in the future to support the company’s continued growth. “This move represents an exciting new chapter for TGW,” said Phil Steeds, Sales Director at TGW Northern Europe. “The building embodies our growth, our success and our ambitions to become a leading local and international provider of automated storage and retrieval & order fulfilment solutions.
“It is a milestone in the history of TGW and I am sure that there will be many more milestones realised at Falcon Court in the future.”
Georg Kirchmayr, President of TGW Logistics Group GmbH, officially opened the company’s new UK offices on 12th March.
