MRO and aerospace supply chain solutions specialist, Farsound, has officially opened its brand-new UK headquarters in Brentwood, Essex.

The new building, which was designed from scratch with sustainable working and technology at the heart of its construction, has eight times the capacity of its old premises.

A £1.2 million robotic picking system has been installed in the operations area for the automatic picking of aerospace parts, and Farsound states that the building has capacity to add mezzanine floors and other facilities as the company develops and expands.

Eco-friendly features include solar panels on the roof to provide electricity for lighting and heating, as well as EV charging points in the car park and space for bicycle storage. Reclaimed greywater is also being used for flushing toilets and staff are encouraged to recycle resources as much as possible.

On officially opening the building, The Mayor of Brentwood, Councillor Gareth Barrett, said: We are thrilled that Farsound has moved its UK headquarters here, joining several other nearby innovative global businesses with local headquarters. I am delighted to open your new headquarters and wish you every success in your new home.”

Kevin Sargent, non-executive chairman of Farsound, said: “We are pleased to be able to officially open our new headquarters building in Brentwood, Essex. It has been more than two years in the planning and represents a significant investment for us.

“We believe firmly that it will support our ambitious growth plans, as we expand our team, our services and our market reach, not only here in the UK, but around the world.”
