Air conditioning manufacturer Aermec has officially opened its new UK headquarters in Southend, which will also be a hub for the business across northern Europe.
Alessandro Riello, CEO of Italian parent company Aermec SpA, joined Vice President Raffaella Riello for the ribbon-cutting ceremony. The opening was particularly poignant as the building is named after Giordano Riello, Aermec’s founder, who died last May.
The 4,250sq ft custom-built facility has two floors of office space as well as capacity for a dedicated training room and a 2,007sqft warehouse. It will become Aermec’s northern European hub and centre of excellence. Customers will benefit from on-line witness testing for controls and CPD courses that will complement Aermec’s extensive facilities in Italy.
Paul Lawrence, Aermec UK Managing Director, said: “We are excited about this next new chapter for our business. Strategically located with excellent rail, road, and air links, the new premises will also aid our customer-centric business to better engage and serve customers better with purpose-built training facilities.”
When choosing the location, Italian parent company Aermec SpA assessed customer access, proximity to London, ease of doing business and strategic ability to provide technical support, training, customer sales and business development.
