VEGA Controls opens new UK HQ following £9m investment
After a year-long build and an overall investment totalling £9m, VEGA Controls has opened its new UK headquarters and purpose-built training and seminar centre in Maresfield, Sussex.
VEGA manufactures a range of sensors, transmitters, point-level switches and dedicated information delivery systems for all kinds of liquids, gases and solids, offering solutions for process automation, control and storage.
The carbon-neutral building benefits from almost 10,000 square feet of training and meeting facilities for VEGA customers and stakeholders to use. These include over 15 working, hands-on equipment and application models of level and pressure technologies, sited in their own networked demonstration area; state-of-the-art AV amenities; full sets of operational training equipment and interconnected desks to help train people to the highest standards.
VEGA managing director Ray Tregale, said: “Along with our exciting new product portfolio, this is our vision and investment for the long term. Purchasing the land and carefully designing the building we need, was not just for now, but for decades to come. It’s a statement of intent and shows our commitment to support product users and engineers across all industries, as well as our staff, of course, and to demonstrate our confidence in the future of UK business.
“When the situation allows, our doors will be open and we will look to encourage visitors for in-person product education and application training, and even for them to use just as a meeting place. It’s available to all our customers and stakeholders with an interest in the UK instrumentation and process automation sectors, as well as others beyond.”
