Claire Perry MP opens Grant UK’s Showroom

Claire Perry MP and Minister of State for Energy and Clean Growth has opened Grant UK’s new Showroom and Meeting Suite on-site.

Grant Engineering welcomed customers, suppliers and staff to its HQ for the official opening of the facilities.

Claire commented: “As the local MP and a local resident, I am proud to be on the Hopton Industrial Estate to open Grant UK’s new premises. Thanks to companies like Grant UK and their innovative products which bring down emissions and improve the way that people heat their homes, the UK is leading the way in cutting carbon emissions.”

Paul Wakefield, Grant UK’s Managing Director, addressed the guests at the event and said: “Grant UK moved to Devizes in 2002. Today, we employ 76 employees and the site has continued to develop to accommodate our expanding product portfolio, including Grant’s growing renewable offerings from air source heat pumps through to innovative hybrid technologies. We were very pleased to welcome Claire Perry to open the new facilities which marks the beginning of the next chapter in Grant UK’s history. There are several exciting projects and developments waiting in the wings here at Grant and we look forward to unveiling these later in the year.”

The new development, which was designed and built using local businesses and was completed in January, took less than a year and has increased the size of the storage facilities and offices by 40%.

Grant UK’s HQ has occupied its location on the Hopton Industrial Estate in Devizes for nearly two decades. The latest development commenced in the summer of 2017 and involved the demolition of a derelict building adjacent to the existing offices and warehouse.

To complement the new facility, Grant UK has installed a racking system in both warehouses which has doubled the storage capacity of the site. Over 4,000 oil boilers will now be stocked on-site with additional warehouse space being allocated for the storage of renewable products and a growing range of spares.

Adjacent to the warehouse is a showroom which is home to a selection of Grant’s heating products. On display will be several of Grant’s Vortex oil boiler models which were awarded 2017 Which? Best Buys alongside the Aerona³ air source heat pump and VortexAir Hybrid. There is also a working 16kW Aerona³ heat pump which will supply the building with heating and hot water.

Above the showroom there is a new meeting suite which can accommodate up to 14 attendees which incorporates a smart screen and conference call facilities.

In addition to Grant UK’s own use, it is hoped that its merchant customers will also use the premises to host their own regional events.
