Forest Garden invests in new head office facilities

Published:  02 December, 2014

Following the recent investment in additional sawmill facilities, Forest Garden has announced that it will shortly be moving into a new group head office at its Worcestershire site.

The 19,500 sq ft office marks an exciting new chapter for the group, and represents a significant upgrade for its central office facilities. Featuring high-tech presentation rooms and a purpose built suite of contemporary offices, the new head office will become home to everyone within Forest Garden’s group administration functions, as well as the company’s dedicated product development specialists. It will also feature meeting room facilities, which will be available to customers and supply partners to book for meetings, presentations and training purposes.

The building will also allow the company to add a product display and exhibition area, providing the perfect platform to showcase new products and innovations.

Talking about this investment, Guy Grainger, group chief executive of Forest Garden, 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, increase our treatment facilities, and add to the manufacturing resources at our Hartlebury site. This move 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.”
