On the 5th July, we were really excited to launch the new UK Experience Centre in Camberley, Surrey.
Our new Experience Centre has been designed from the ground up and houses a cutting-edge development kitchen, a fully connected service and training academy and a 20,000sqft warehouse and office facilities. This addition represents a new chapter in our quest in achieving our global commitment to sustainability, Net-Zero E-Mixion 2030. Built using very latest in sustainable materials, energy-saving systems, smart technology and the space to not only support the existing team, but to future-proof the building for planned growth and expansion across all areas of the business.
The multi-million-pound investment project that started just over 18 months ago, created in conjunction with one of the country’s most respected sustainability consultants and features revolutionary materials. A bank of 287 roof-mounted photovoltaic panels produces up to 100kw per hour, off-setting the energy drawn from the grid. The remaining electricity demand is provided by 100% renewable energy from BrytEnergy – a supplier of zero-carbon electricity sourced solely from solar, wind and hydropower. At a rate that is twice the average business energy tariff!
It's not just our power supply that has been thought about here. The floor is made from Marmoleum, a substance made from 97% natural materials, is carbon neutral at source, certified by the allergen council and is made in the UK. Our office spaces are void of suspended ceilings, further reducing the building’s footprint, while smart heating and air circulation systems maintain a constant temperature, set 1ºc lower than the standard to save as much as 14% of energy usage.
Our Corporate Chefs will be based in the new development kitchen, complete with our latest speed oven and combi oven solutions. This state-of-the-art development kitchen has been kitted out with streaming technology which allows our customers to attend live, virtual and interactive demos and witness the unique performances of our commercial ovens. We look forward to inviting our customers, partners, dealers and distributors from across the UK, where we will host regular product demonstrations, service and maintenance training, offer new product experiences and even deliver advice and support.
