Kemtile moves to new Warrington HQ
HYGIENIC flooring and drainage company Kemtile has just moved to new premises on Taylor Business Park in Warrington, taking 16,000sq ft of office and warehouse space.
Kemtile is relocating its 18-person head office team from a smaller space on the same park on a five-year-lease. Its move to this fully renovated, newly refurbished unit sees the company increase its working space by a third.
Stephen Westley, director of Kemtile, said: ‘Our decision to move to significantly larger premises reaffirms our strategic growth plans for the future, while acknowledging and celebrating our commercial achievements over the last two decades.
‘We’ve traded very successfully from Taylor Business Park since 1979 but since 1998, when my co-director Jamie Cook and I took over, our turnover has increased year-on-year – even during the recessions of 2008 and 2009 - and we’ve grown considerably in terms of size, capabilities and customer base.
‘Our move into new premises - which provides us with an additional 5,000 sq ft of office and warehouse space – marks a very exciting time for us as a company.
‘We chose the new unit because it offers us clean, modern office and warehouse space, excellent motorway links and, most importantly, a really pleasant work space with room for the team to grow in the future.
‘In fact, we’ve already expanded the team with the appointment of a dedicated health and safety manager. The provision of a dedicated training room is another exciting addition to our facilities and we very much look forward to increasing our team in terms of numbers as well as skills and expertise, which in turn we’ll pass on to our customers.’
Kemtile says it’s been supplying hygienic floors to the food and drink and pharmaceutical industries for almost 40 years and has become a leading player, working on projects across the UK for major producers and employing more than 50 skilled flooring contractors.
‘A clear understanding of the food and drink sector’s operational and legislative demands means Kemtile can provide total flooring solutions to suit including sub-structures and drainage,’ says the company.
Its customers in recent years include Princes, Kellogg’s, Heineken, Unilever, Heinz, 2 Sisters Food Group, Cargill and Moy Park.
