Following the investment in additional sawmill facilities, manufacturer and distributor of garden timber products, Forest, has announced it will shortly be moving into a new modern group head office at its centrally located Worcestershire site.
The new 19,500 sq ft office features high-tech presentation rooms and a purpose built suite of contemporary offices, and will become home to everyone within Forest’s group administration functions as well as the company’s dedicated product development specialists.
The new head office also features meeting room facilities, which will be available to Forest customers and supply partners to book for meetings, presentations and training purposes.
The new building will also allow Forest to add a product display and exhibition area, reminiscent of the company’s displays at exhibitions such as Glee and Hampton Court.
Group chief executive of Forest Garden, Guy Grainger, said: “Forest Garden is investing for the long-term future of our group. In recent months we have invested in additional sawmill facilities to further increase group fence panel capacity to the largest in the UK, increased our treatment facilities and added to the manufacturing resources at our Hartlebury sites. This move now into our new head office embodies the successful turnaround of the group over the last six years and enables us to bring together all group functions within a modern office environment to really capitalise on team synergies.
“I am also excited at the prospect of being able to invite our customers to visit our new exhibition and showroom area where we will be permanently showcasing the group’s extensive product ranges and merchandising solutions.”
