A new UK service centre for a global energy technology company is taking shape in Staffordshire.
Electrical energy firm OMICRON is investing £2 million in a purpose-built, state-of-the-art facility at Stafford’s Redhill Business Park. The county council-developed Redhill is nearly at full occupancy.
OMICRON is renowned for its innovative testing, diagnosis and monitoring solutions for electrical energy systems. Customers include energy providers and utilities, manufacturers of equipment for the transmission and distribution of electrical power and more.
The company is currently based at Stafford Technology Park, and will relocate to its new premises when complete. It has worked closely with Staffordshire County Council to secure the move. The county council completed the necessary infrastructure to aid its development.
Staffordshire County Council’s economic growth leader Mark Winnington said:
OMICRON is the latest addition to Redhill Business Park, which is becoming renowned as a leading site for innovation and growth. The site development by the county council has been a great success and with near full occupancy we know our investment has made a difference.
“Our inward investment team has been working closely with OMICRON and so we’re pleased to welcome the company to Redhill, especially as it is a company in one of our key sectors with a highly skilled workforce. We look forward to its continued expansion and contribution to Staffordshire’s ever-growing economy.”
Birmingham-based Pinnegar Hayward Design (PHD) Architects is leading the project. The 8,000 sq ft building will serve as a technical, training and sales centre. The development is progressing well, with the steel framework and infrastructure already completed. OMICRON is expected to relocate to the new building this summer.
Redhill is home to GE’s new facility which is already in operation, with a second under construction. Birmingham developer Trebor recently completed its industrial unit at the site and is now ready for occupation. The county council invested £10million to create Redhill Business Park.
