Markes International expands UK operations
Thursday, 9 July 2015 at 11:04:AM
Markes International’s operations
at its UK headquarters in Llantrisant, near Cardiff, are set to expand still
further with the acquisition of another building.
The new building, which is adjacent
to the company’s existing manufacturing facility and Technical Centre,
comprises nearly 3000 square feet of office space, which initially will be
allocated to the company’s expanding Engineering operations.
This news comes as the company
looks to further its success in the export market, having won a Queen’s Award
for Enterprise in April.
“The new accommodation will not
only give us room for growth but will allow us to reconfigure the business
operationally, moving different departments around within the various buildings
and floors,” explains Alun Cole, Managing Director of Markes International.
“Since we located at Gwaun Elai in
2006, we’ve benefitted from a number of advantages including close proximity to
the M4 and other link roads. These have opened up the employment pool available
to us, as well as supporting our requirement for fast distribution.”
