Synergy celebrates official opening of global HQ in the UK
19 July 2017
Synergy Logistics’ staff, customers, suppliers and partners gathered on Friday 14th July to celebrate the official opening of the company’s new global headquarters.
The new HQ features more than 11,000 sq ft of purpose built office space to accommodate the company’s continued strong growth, along with a 20,000 sq ft warehouse, providing a live test, demonstration and training environment for the company’s latest solutions and innovations, including the multi-award winning Snapfulfil Cloud Warehouse Management System (WMS).
Located on the Willow Farm Business Park in Castle Donington, close to Marks & Spencer’s million sq ft e-commerce distribution centre, the new facility represents a further leap forward for Synergy Logistics as it continues to challenge for a greater share of the WMS market, both in the UK and in the US.
Formerly headquartered in Loughborough, Synergy currently employs around 65 people and expects this number to increase by 30% over the next two years. Due to strong growth in both the UK and US markets, the company’s turnover has increased five-fold in the last five years.
Following an official ribbon-cutting ceremony by Synergy’s owner, Hugh Stevens, invited guests were treated to a guided tour of the new facilities, followed by a guest presentation from renowned futurist, Dr Christopher Barnatt.
Tony Dobson, Managing Director of Synergy Logistics said: “Our new headquarters represents a major investment and an exciting new phase in our growth strategy. Like our special guest, we are firmly focused on the future and continue to channel our energy and investment into the development and delivery of leading edge technology solutions which keep our customers at the forefront of warehousing and fulfillment best practices.
“Our customer base is growing rapidly in both size and stature and the investment in these new premises, along with our ongoing investment in R&D, will help us continue to capitalise on our strong momentum in the market.”
