Forest has opened a new head office

Garden timber product manufacturer Forest has upgraded its offices.

The 2,000sqm office represents an upgrade for its central office facilities in Hartlebury, Worcestershire.

The office features hi-tech presentation rooms and will house Forest’s group administration functions and 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 for training purposes.
 
The new building will also include a product display and exhibition area to replicate its displays at Glee and Hampton Court.
 
Forest Garden group chief executive 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."
