Fuchs invests in new UK offices

Published by
World Cement,

Fuchs UK has invested in brand new, contemporary, 21st century offices at its headquarters in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent. This continues the Group’s policy of investing in local facilities while growing its global presence.

Key factors in the design of the office were energy efficiency and the requirement to create an environment for employees that encourages team work and creativity. The building uses LED lighting, climate control systems and outstanding insulation properties. With its open environment, even the CEO’s office doubles as an additional meeting space.

Previous investment has seen solar panels installed within the manufacturing plant capable of 525kWp, generating 14% of electricity demand, proving that sustainability for FUCHS means a real commitment, not just marketing speak.

As well as being the UK Manufacturing plant for Fuchs Group, Hanley is also the Fuchs Global center of Excellence for the specialist sectors machining, mining, glass and Silkolene motorcycle oils. In support of these specialist areas, Fuchs has enhanced the R&D Technical Centre, which is attached to the new office block. This will create additional capacity for the ever increasing analytical work carried out in the Service & Quality laboratories. The new test centre will include the installation of additional machine tools to enhance its CNC capabilities.

This, taken together with new test field building in Mannheim, home of FUCHS Global, gives the UK company unparalleled test facilities in the industrial and automotive sectors.
