New Head Office and expanded UK manufacturing base mark continued growth for Vista Engineering
New signage at the Derbyshire HQ marks the completion of the 18-month building project, which has doubled stockholding capacity and significantly increased office space to help meet the growing demand for Vista products.
The new premises are just part of a wider programme of expansion that has seen the Vista Group acquire two additional companies – BPC and GA Fixings – and increase its UK production and warehousing capacity.
From the outset, Vista Managing Director Phil Travis was determined the flagship HQ should reflect the company’s commitment to sustainability and innovation. Features such as roof mounted solar panels help reduce Vista’s energy consumption and carbon footprint, as well as drive down manufacturing costs – a benefit that will be passed on to customers in the shape of more competitive prices.
The end result, according to Phil, is a working environment that’s better for everyone:
‘’The feedback from staff and customers has been one hundred per cent positive. As well as being a spacious, modern place to work, the new offices give us all the room we need for our growing Sales and Technical Support Teams. The expanded warehouse means we can hold a lot more stock, ready to get out whenever it’s needed. We’ve been on the same site for over 40 years now and seeing the new building take shape over the last year and a half has been like the start of a whole new chapter for us.”
Vista Engineering designs and manufactures a wide range of wall ties and other building support products for the construction sector. The company is ISO 9001 certified and many of its products carry BBA approvals.
