VEGA officially open their new building
After a ‘slightly COVID delayed’ build and hand-over, it meant the official opening had to be slightly delayed too. Fortunately this also coincided with the 40th anniversary of the founding of VEGA UK, so a celebration was well overdue!
On May the 25th 2022, guests from all over the UK, Ireland and Germany were welcomed to the new UK headquarters, with the event beginning with a welcome reception in the new training and demonstration areas. The building, named Metior House, was officially declared open and the ribbon cut by Isabel Grieshaber the CEO of VEGA Grieshaber KG and Ray Tregale the UK Managing Director.
After an enjoyable lunch and music in the new cafe, guests toured the building, sampling products, as well as learning about the varied industries that VEGA are engaged in. It was then followed by an evening gala dinner with music and entertainment.
Managing Director Ray Tregale said, “Along with our exciting product portfolio, this high quality building is our vision and investment for the long term. We have carefully designed a spacious office, service centre, flexible training and seminar facility for generations to come.” He added, “It demonstrates our ongoing commitment to support our colleagues, product users and engineers from all industries.”
Metior House is located in a beautiful area of East Sussex countryside, yet within easy range of Gatwick airport, the M25 and railway connections to London. For motorists there is plenty of parking and EV charging available on site.
This award-winning, carbon-neutral building features ample working space to provide support and service for everyone. “We’re already busy hosting seminars and training courses for all types businesses, the feedback has been excellent, we’re looking forward to welcoming many more people here.” Ray concluded.
