The global CEO of Unox has said that this week’s opening of a new UK headquarters and Experience Centre is a major step forward for the business as it targets new revenue and sustainability goals.
CEO Nicola Michelon was in Camberley for the opening of the facility this week and said it would allow Unox to support customers in even stronger ways.
“The launch of the UK Experience Centre represents a significant milestone for our company – a project that has been carefully considered and painstakingly managed for more than a year. The new site not only demonstrates the global sustainability commitment that Unox has pledged, but is also characteristic of the progressive, committed and supportive company that Unox represents in the UK and around the world.”
He added: “The new UK Experience Centre is a facility where we’re proud to host our partners – showcasing our innovative equipment solutions while working collaboratively to learn, develop and fine-tune our offering. Ultimately our new site enables our team to best support and serve our customers.”
Mr Michelon said the business is on course to achieve global revenues of €230m (£197m) in 2022, up from €182m (£156m) last year. “By 2025 we are aiming to reach €336m (£288m),” he revealed.
The new Camberley site is just yards from its previous office but 10 times the size and with additional warehousing capacity.
It has been designed from the ground up with the environment at its core and is one of the greenest catering equipment HQs ever constructed – with the entire build project focused around carbon reduction.
UK managing director, Scott Duncan, said “This is a proud moment for the team at Unox UK. Launching the UK Experience Centre is something that we have been committed to and fully supportive of since early discussions took place within the business several years ago. For a company like Unox, it is important to have facilities that we are proud to invite customers and partners to – exactly what we have with the new UK Experience Centre.”
Mr Duncan said the site has been purpose-built, both to meet its needs and to minimise its impact on the environment.
“Everything from the design and layout of the building to the materials used in the flooring, the installation of EV charging and even the living walls in the office to promote oxygen creation, help this to be one of the most sustainable, energy-efficient manufacturer buildings in use in our industry.”
