Hegla UK has relocated as part of a larger expansion program. Since the termination of its partnership with Bystronic glass UK at the end of 2019, the company has now moved to a more centralized location that is better suited to support Hegla’s business needs and those of its customers, according to the company.

The new offices and warehouse, based in Burntwood, Staffordshire, U.K., are centrally located and currently hold more than $150,000 of Hegla cutting table spares, making it a suitable base for distribution and collection. The company has expanded its team this year by hiring new engineers and administrative staff.

“We are confident that the support the Hegla UK team can now provide will be even better than before, in combination with direct access to our German service department. At this new site we will be able to hold more spares stock and offer better meeting facilities for our customers if required,” says Steve Goble, managing director. “The industry is going through a period of change and uncertainty at the moment. Customers want reassurances and consequently the move gives us a much more central base with a growing service team not only to support existing Hegla customers but to support what we hope will be the successful introduction of the Hegla TaiFin range of furnaces for flat architectural and curved automotive glass.”

“With the recent developments we have a clear and defined growth strategy. The new building offers us space to supply to customer demands and will allow us more control over the company’s destination,” adds Paul Gibbs, sales manager.
