Grant UK has moved to new premises with the Company’s Head Office, warehousing and Training Academy now based in Swindon, Wiltshire. The Company’s new site includes offices and storage facilities that are three times larger than their previous premises, allowing Grant UK to continue to expand in the sustainable heating sector.

For over twenty-five years, Grant UK has been supplying award winning heating products and developing its range of support services for customers. During this time, the Company has significantly grown in size and after trading in Salisbury for a number of years, Grant UK moved to Devizes, Wiltshire where their sales, training, technical, marketing and distribution teams have been based since 2003. Nearly two decades on, Grant UK has undergone further expansion and has moved to a new site in Swindon which was formally opened on 3rd November 2022.

Grant UK’s new facilities in Swindon are considerably larger, totaling over 80,000sqft. In addition to providing greater office spaces and significantly increased on-site storage capacity, the new site has also enabled Grant UK’s Training Academy to be expanded as well. With improved facilities and more storage, Grant UK hopes that its new home in Swindon will allow it to continue to grow, further improving and enhancing its delivery of products and services to customers.

The official opening of the new site by Tim Pollard, Principal of Pollard and Pollard, on 3rd November was the culmination of a ten-month renovation project. Throughout this year, Grant UK has significantly invested in the premises, transforming them into the impressive facilities they are today. The renovation project involved the entire site, installing state of the art new racking in the warehouses, creating engaging workspaces for employees and transforming one of the units into training rooms and practical assessment areas for the Training Academy. The result has been the development of facilities which will meet Grant UK’s day-to-day operational requirements today and in the future.

An integral part of the renovation project was sustainability and Grant UK has implemented numerous environmentally friendly measures throughout the site. A biomass heating system has been installed which is providing the heating and hot water for the site. In addition, 768 solar panels and storage batteries have been installed as part of the 303kWp Solar PV system which has been fitted on the roof of both units, a system which will fulfil all their electricity demand while also feeding renewable electricity into the grid. The choice of materials which have been fitted throughout the office spaces has also been based on their sustainability credentials.

“Our move to Swindon marks an exciting new chapter for Grant UK,” comments Paul Wakefield, Grant UK’s Managing Director. “Moving premises is a significant step for any business to make, but the hard work that has gone into creating our new larger facilities will enable Grant UK and the team to settle into a site which will support our continued growth for many, many years to come. The road to a cleaner, low carbon future will be full of opportunities and this move to new facilities will ensure that we as a company can continue to deliver the high quality products and services that our customers have come to expect from Grant.”
