Fanuc officially opens new HQFanuc UK (www.fanuc.eu), the leading global manufacturer of automation and industrial robotic solutions, has officially opened its new ‘state of the art’ headquarters at Coventry’s Ansty Park, which is strategically located at the hub of the UK motorway network.

The result of an investment of more than £19 million and taking about 12 months to complete, the new 107,000ft2 facility is is four-times larger than its previous location and will enable the business “to further develop its offering and strengthen its position in the market”.

All aspects of the business will operate under one roof, and the three-storey building is also home to a design, manufacturing and training facility, offices and a showroom area.

Fanuc UK currently employs more than 100 people and expects to increase this number in the coming months. The new facility also provides Fanuc UK with the opportunity to increase capacity in the future by 25%.

Tom Bouchier, managing director at Fanuc UK, said: “Our new headquarters represents a new approach for the company, with all parts of our business brought together under one roof for the first time in the UK. By consolidating these functions, we can enhance our capabilities and provide customers with a combination of solutions to meet their every need.

“This investment has helped grow our capacity and, more crucially, has enabled us to strengthen our training services. Training is essential for our customers, and our new training area is equipped with ‘state of the art’ robots, enabling users to fully exploit the capabilities of robotic technology.

“Our relocation will drive further growth, develop our team and strengthen our services, solidifying Fanuc’s position in the UK as a market-leading manufacturer and solutions provider.”
