Codelocks confirms move to Greenham Business Park
Codelocks, innovative designer and manufacturer of keyless digital door and cabinet locks, today confirmed that work has started on its new UK headquarters; a purpose-built facility on Newbury's Greenham Business Park. The new facility was secured through Greenham Common Trust's design and build project - giving tenants the opportunity to move onto the park in a building that suits their specific occupational demands
The company, which has subsidiary offices in North America and Australia, is expanding its UK operations to meet the increasing demand for its range of easy-to-use access control products - sold directly through the company's website, by specialist trade retailers and via a network of distributors. As well as offering a better working environment for its existing employees, the new 5500 sq. ft. building will also enable the company to offer customers better facilities for support and training.
Managing Director, Grant Macdonald, said: "Thanks to the increasing popularity of our keyless digital locks, we needed to find bigger premises in the local area in order to better serve our growing customer base both here in the UK and abroad. On top of that are our plans to launch new product lines next year, so the need for more office and warehouse space was essential. The development opportunity at Greenham Business Park was perfect for our needs."
Grant added: "The move will allow us to significantly ramp up our operations. Thanks to the increase in warehouse space, we'll be able to carry much more stock, the bespoke training area will allow us to offer more hands-on training courses, and we'll be able to provide more technical support services to customers." Greenham Common Trust Chief Executive, Chris Boulton, said: "We are delighted to welcome another internationally renowned company to Greenham Business Park. We wish Codelocks well settling into their new home and a prosperous future at the park."
