On Thursday 26th September 2019, we held a ceremony in Bury St Edmunds to celebrate the official ground breaking of our new headquarters.
The purpose-built site will replace the existing complex on Northern Way, which has served as the company’s headquarters and centre of UK operations since 1971. We are delighted to renew our commitment to the town of Bury St Edmunds and the local community in this way, where we employ over 200 people.
Daemmon Reeve, CEO of Treatt, commented:
“This celebration marks a very exciting new chapter in the company’s 133-year history. The new facility will greatly increase the efficiency of our UK operations, delivering optimum results for our customers whilst also providing a significantly improved, modern working environment in which the Treatt community will flourish.”
Designed by London-based architects PRC, the new facility has been tailored to drive and streamline operational efficiency, bringing all the company’s distillation, manufacturing, logistics, technical and office-based functions under one roof. Following its recent appointment, Readie construction has now commenced mobilization, managed by the park developers, Jaynic.
In the morning, a ceremony to mark the milestone was attended by senior management and several prominent local figures, including Councillor John Griffiths MBE (West Suffolk Council) and Amanda Ankin (Operations Director, Suffolk Chamber of Commerce). Also, in attendance were four lucky members of the Treatt community: Marc Grocott, Sue Coombes, Matthew Parker and Glenn Gilbert (pictured), who won a ‘golden ticket’ to attend at a recent company event.
They then joined the Treatt community for a large gathering on Northern Way, where celebrations continued, to mark this exciting occasion.
