AL UMINIUM COMMITMENT HELPS GROWTH » » CONTINUED SUCCESS IN THE UK market has meant that aluminium systems company Reynaers has outgrown its existing office and warehouse facilities in Birmingham. The new headquarters in Hollymoor Way, Northfield, represents a £6 million investment for Reynaers, and highlights the ongoing commitment the company has to the UK. Martin Rennie, from D5 Architects, designed the new HQ. He said: “It was a real opportunity for the building itself to become a showroom for Reynaers’ products, and we emphasised this through the design of the glazing.” Justin Hunter, Managing Director at Reynaers, said: “We’ve moved into the offices after an extension, complete refurbishment and refit of the interiors of the original building, meaning we are now able to double our current capacity. The envelope looks fantastic and features the new Hi-Finity corner solution, Structurally Clamped curtain wall and parallel opening windows. “The building of our new UK Head Office and warehouse is a significant milestone for us as a team, and also for our customers who have supported us over the years.” The premises allow vast stock holding and will house a dedicated showroom featuring Reynaers’ commercial, trade and high-end domestic products, various meeting rooms and bespoke conference facilities for up to 75 people.
