Hansgrohe UK&I announces new multi-million pound investment

As part of a five-year growth plan to double the size of the business, manufacturer of showers and taps, Hansgrohe, is investing more than £5m into its UK subsidiary.

The investment sees it focus on increasing employee numbers across all functions, enhancing marketing programmes and developing a UK specific product roadmap, culminating in the creation of a new, purpose-built head office in Warwickshire.

The new head office in Warwick will include almost 5000 square ft of dedicated showroom space to showcase its portfolio of water efficient showers, taps, and accessories.

To strengthen its offering to the trade, the site will also see an expansion in training facilities for its installer customers, with the addition of an Installer Academy, providing enhanced access to technical expertise and hands-on, practical experience.

Jay Phillips, Managing Director of Hansgrohe UK&I, commented: “This is an incredibly exciting time for everyone associated with Hansgrohe UK&I. We have ambitious plans to take Hansgrohe forward in the coming years, and the investment in this state-of-the-art new head office is a vital part of making this a success.

“Having everything available under one roof, from a spacious showroom and training, to warehousing and distribution, will ensure we’re able to best meet the needs of our busy customers and support them with their business. This also reinforces our goal to be the ‘easiest to do business with’ partner and will further improve our already high levels of stock and service.

“Our people are a huge part of our plans and we’re looking forward to them joining us on this journey. We’ll continue to operate from our Esher site to ensure there are no disruptions to service during the transition period. We plan to be fully operational by summer next year with the showroom and Installer Academy designed and built specifically for the needs of the UK market.

“We have a great brand and products, and an amazing team here at Hansgrohe UK&I, and now we will have an ideal new head office we can all be proud to call our home.”
