Managing director Paul Downer said moving to the new facility is essential part of the company's three-year growth strategy, which sees it aiming to expand the business by more than 50 per cent.

"I am delighted that we achieved our 30 week build programme on time and we are fully operational in this outstanding Essex Barn style building at the start of the New Year," Downer added.

General manager Matthew Selby said: "We had outgrown our current office facilities and it makes commercial sense to combine our operational yard and office facilities on one site at Pattens Yard in West Bergholt. We will benefit greatly from the planned purpose-built headquarters in terms of daily operations and logistics." 

The building was designed by local architects ADP and built by local trades and suppliers. Johnsons of Whixley donated the trees and plants to the landscaped beds to the front of the building.
