Bürkert officially opened its new headquarters in Cirencester on 1st February, and throughout the day opened its doors to customers, distributors, members of the press, the local mayor and Moto GP rider, Danny Kent.

To start the day, Cirencester Mayor, Andy Lichnowski, cut the ribbon. Visitors were then invited on a guided tour around the building and a presentation from general manager, Paul Trevitt, to explain the reasons for the move and the ways in which the building had been customised to allow the company to continue its growth.

Trevitt said: “We have been setting the pace in key sectors of the process market for some time now, and the requirement to move to a more flexible headquarters is the obvious result of our growth. Ultimately our customers aren’t just buying products from us; they are buying solutions and on-going technical support. The new building offers improved warehousing and gives us more space to develop our specialist system design and manufacturing services.

“We have also invested in creating a large technology orientated meeting room which will enable us to meet increasing demand for our customer and process specific training courses, which have been well oversubscribed.”

The purpose-built premises are constructed around a modern factory building.

Trevitt added: “I would ask anyone that’s interested in our facilities to get in touch and arrange a visit of their own.”
