Eppendorf celebrates opening of new UK headquarters

04-Oct-2012 - United Kingdom

Eppendorf has celebrated the opening of its new UK headquarters in Stevenage together with 60 guests from all walks of science and industry.

Guest of honour Dr Dirk Ehlers, President & CEO of Eppendorf AG, performed the official opening of Eppendorf House, a high-grade, energy-efficient facility on the Arlington Business Park in Stevenage.

“The purchase and custom-fitting out of the UK headquarters represents a major investment for Eppendorf and really underpins our belief in, and commitment to, the quality and dynamism of science in the UK,” said Dr Ehlers. “The move from previous premises in St Albans and Cambridge is the culmination of several years’ work including the successful integration in 2011 of Eppendorf UK and New Brunswick Scientific UK, following Eppendorf AG’s acquisition of New Brunswick in 2007. We have now brought the teams from both of the UK organisations together under one roof in a conveniently located, state-of-the-art facility that provides everything necessary to deliver expert customer service and support across the UK and Ireland.”

At 9,500 square feet, the two floors of Eppendorf House more than double the company’s accommodation. The new HQ features a fully equipped demonstration area for both Eppendorf and New Brunswick products and a comprehensive on-site service and repair department, as well as an applications laboratory, training, conference and meeting areas.

Albrecht Wiener commented, “In 2013 Eppendorf will celebrate 15 years of direct operation in the UK and despite the current challenging global economic conditions, sales of both the Eppendorf and New Brunswick brands continue to increase. We work hard to maintain our reputation for high quality products and excellent customer support, and the new facilities and extra space we now have will allow us to build this further. I very much look forward to welcoming many more visitors to our new home.”
