Bürkert UK officially opens the doors to its new UK headquarters

February 06
11:34 2013

On Friday 1st February, 2013, Bürkert GB hosted the official opening of its new headquarters to celebrate the successful move into its new, purpose-built premises constructed around a modern factory building in Cirencester. Throughout the day Bürkert opened its doors to customers, distributors, members of the press, the local mayor and even Moto GP rider, Danny Kent.

After the official opening ceremony, which saw Cirencester Mayor, Andy Lichnowski, cut the ribbon to start off the day, visitors were invited on a guided tour around the building and a presentation from proud General Manager, Paul Trevitt, to explain the reasons for the move and the ways in which the building had been customised to allow the company to continue its growth.

Paul Trevitt comments: “We have been setting the pace in key sectors of the process market for some time now, and the requirement to move to a more flexible headquarters is the obvious result of our growth. Ultimately our customers aren’t just buying products from us; they are buying solutions and on-going technical support. The new building offers improved warehousing and gives us more space to develop our specialist system design and manufacturing services.

“We have also invested in creating a large technology orientated meeting room which will enable us to meet increasing demand for our customer and process specific training courses, which have been well oversubscribed.”

Bürkert’s previous UK headquarters were in Stroud, Gloucestershire, but this location was hard to access and had limited space for expansion, particularly for Bürkert’s highly successful systems business and training facilities. By contrast, the new Cirencester headquarters is more convenient, being easy to access by road and rail. The location also boasts better production facilities, offices and warehousing. Last but not least, better parking facilities ensure that customers and attendees of Bürkert’s many process training courses will be able to park conveniently, adjacent to the new headquarters.

Paul continues: “It was a fantastic day and the support and feedback that we received from all the visitors was very positive. We are an extremely open company and I believe the way forward in business is to develop mutually beneficial working relationships. With that in mind I would ask anyone that’s interested in our facilities to get in touch and arrange a visit of their own.”
