Work starts on security giant’s new European headquarters in Warwick

Work is underway on the construction of a European HQ for New Zealand-based security giant Gallagher.

Gallagher, a leading manufacturer in security and agricultural technology, has celebrated the start of groundworks at the site in Warwick, marking the beginning of development for the 16,145 sq f) office and 7,211 sq ft warehouse.

Gallagher, which operates across 160 countries worldwide, has chosen a ‘built to suit’ unit at Tournament Fields.

Richard Huison, regional manager for the UK and Europe, said: “The new office and warehouse will give us even greater scope to showcase our world-class technology, host events, and support our Channel and customer network across the region.”

“Gallagher Group is an iconic Kiwi company and it’s great to see them expanding their presence in the UK,” said Bede Corry, New Zealand’s High Commissioner in London.

“This new headquarters is a vote of confidence in Gallagher’s British and European markets, and the investment is yet another example of the diverse and sophisticated trade relationship between New Zealand and the United Kingdom.”

Matt Western, MP for Leamington Spa and Warwick, added: “I’m delighted that Gallagher has chosen to locate its UK and European Headquarters in Tournament Fields in Warwick. At the centre of the UK transport networks and with such a terrific pool of skills and talent it makes perfect sense for businesses such as theirs.”

The development is set to be completed in mid-2021.
