Automation and eCommerce specialist Conveyor Systems Ltd (CSL) has finalised its relocation to a brand-new, purpose-built headquarters as part of a seven-figure investment in the company’s eco-friendly future.
Located in Swadlincote, Derbyshire, the new office is six times the size of the business’ previous premises, was sustainably built under CSL’s direction, and is packed with green features that reflect the company’s forward-thinking attitude. The move to the new headquarters was necessitated by tremendous year-on-year growth as CSL has become a major conveyor systems integrator and supplier, handling multi-million-pound projects for international blue-chip companies.
Spread across the building’s three floors are flexible offices, meeting rooms, a canteen and recreation areas, complemented by a large lobby and a demonstration showroom featuring two conveyor circuits. The entire building is naturally lit by windows which offer spectacular views of the local Coronation Park nature reserve. CSL’s customers will benefit from the company’s updated process controls, on-site R&D testing and prototyping, and the consolidation of large orders reducing delivery costs.
The EPC A-rated building features double insulated walls and cavities, a large array of rooftop solar panels and multiple 22Kwh EV charging points. CSL has also invested in heat exchangers, LED lighting, hybrid vehicles and inverter air-conditioning (AC) units. Inverter AC units use far less energy and are one of the most efficient ways of electrically generating heat. These combined features significantly reduce the company’s carbon footprint.
CSL Managing Director Mike Graham explained: “We are thrilled to have put the finishing touches to our new home. We experienced an amazing 25 years at our old site, but our new state-of-the-art HQ at Highwall Business Park will support our needs and our customers’ needs in the next exciting phase of our growth plan. Staff have loved the move too, as they now have more space and better facilities available to them, which has increased productivity and motivation.
“Project managing the build with the architects during the initial design phase and implementing tailored sustainability features has made the facility the perfect fit for our business and our customers. We were able to specify exactly the technologies we wanted to incorporate to make the site as ecologically friendly as possible and reflect the sector’s diversification towards environmental protection – and our own passion for delivering on those pledges. The next 25 years look very promising for the business and these are exciting times for us all.”
