Claire Perry MP and Minister of State for Energy and Clean Growth has opened Grant UK’s new Showroom and Meeting Suite at their Devizes headquarters.
Perry, the Member of Parliament for the Devizes Constituency, said: “As the local MP and a local resident, I am proud to be on the Hopton Industrial Estate to open Grant UK’s new premises. Thanks to companies like Grant UK and their innovative products which bring down emissions and improve the way that people heat their homes, the UK is leading the way in cutting carbon emissions.”
The new development, which was designed and built using local businesses and was completed in January, took less than a year and has increased the size of the storage facilities and offices by 40%, an expansion which will enable Grant UK to enhance the level of service it delivers to customers.
Grant UK’s HQ has occupied its central location on the Hopton Industrial Estate in Devizes for nearly two decades. The latest development commenced in the summer of 2017 and involved the demolition of a derelict building adjacent to the existing offices and warehouse. The site now welcomes an extensive new warehouse with an adjoining showroom and meeting suites.
Over 4,000 oil boilers are now stocked on-site with additional warehouse space being allocated for the storage of renewable products and a growing range of spares.
Adjacent to the new warehouse is a new showroom which is home to a selection of Grant’s heating products. Above the showroom there is a new meeting suite which can accommodate up to fourteen attendees which incorporates a smart screen and conference call facilities.
Paul Wakefield, Grant UK’s managing director, addressed guests at the opening event. “Grant UK moved to Devizes in 2002. Today, we employ 76 employees and the site has continued to develop to accommodate our expanding product portfolio, including Grant’s growing renewable offerings from air source heat pumps through to innovative hybrid technologies. We were very pleased to welcome Claire Perry to open the new facilities which marks the beginning of the next chapter in Grant UK’s history. There are several exciting projects and developments waiting in the wings here at Grant and we look forward to unveiling these later in the year.”
