Security manufacturer Gallagher will develop a new European headquarters in Warwick, England.
The 1,500 square metre office, with on site café, will allow Gallagher to host prospective clients, hold events, and support Channel Partners and customers with meeting, conference, and training facilities.
The development also includes a 670 sq m warehouse, with land available for future expansions.
“We’re very excited to announce this new facility for our UK and Europe operations,” says Richard Huison, regional manager for the UK and Europe.
“We’ve experienced rapid growth over recent years and have fast outgrown our current Nuneaton premises. This new facility will enable us to showcase our exceptional security solutions while providing outstanding support for our Channel Partners and customers.”
Gallagher has invested in the development of solutions that comply with UK access control, perimeter intrusion detection, cybersecurity, and high security standards. Their UK-certified high security solutions build on Gallagher’s government-approved solutions for the U.S., Australian, and New Zealand markets.
Mark Junge, global general manager for security, says Gallagher aims to be the security solution of choice for countries in the Five Eyes alliance. “With discussions already underway with several UK government agencies, this new facility provides the ideal base to support our extensive growth plans
for the region.”
Gallagher’s European headquarters will be located in Tournament Fields business park. Development is set to begin in September, with the team aiming to occupy the building in mid-2021.
Gallagher has also been recognised for innovation following its Covid-19 response. Its Proximity and Contact Tracing Report won the Outstanding New Product award at the New Zealand Security Awards in August. Developed in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the report gives Gallagher customers critical information to manage exposure and protect the health and safety of people on site.
Gallagher has made its Proximity and Contact Tracing utility available to customers free of charge during the pandemic.
“I’m very proud of our team who worked hard to produce this tool in an incredibly tight timeframe, while working in virtual environments,” said Rachel Kelly, chief product officer for Gallagher’s security division.
The Proximity and Contact Tracing Report, released in May, enables organisations to quickly identify areas where a person with a contagious virus has been on site. It also identifies all other cardholders who shared these areas.
