Wirtgen Group UK invests in new head office

WIRTGEN Group has officially opened its new UK headquarters in Newark, Nottinghamshire following a £12.5 million investment in a nine-acre site.

The equipment giant employs over 120 people in the UK. The new base features a workshop, two training rooms and a spare parts distribution warehouse that will stock around 8,000 items. An outdoor centre will allow customers to undertake practical training on the company’s road pavers and planers.

Wirtgen UK’s managing director Paul Holmes said, “This fantastic new facility demonstrates our commitment to continued growth in the UK across all our machines types and brands. Customers will benefit from a greatly enhanced spare parts delivery service and a significant increase in our repairs and workshop capacity.

“The close proximity to our previous office has enabled us to retain all of our outstanding team and we look forward to welcoming customers to site and realising the opportunity that this state-of-the-art facility provides.”
