International technology company Semcon has relocated its UK headquarters to Warwick.
The Swedish giant, which was based at Kineton in Warwickshire, has moved its 115-strong UK team to a new purpose-built facility on Tournament Fields.
Semcon is a global company providing engineering services and product information to help companies develop products in such industries as automotive, life science, telecommunications and energy.
The group has 45 sites on three continents with more than 3,000 employees. Its services include all kinds of challenges within technology development, such as product development, product information, quality, training and methodology development.
Torsten Sundin, country manager at Semcon Product Information UK, said: “We had outgrown the facility at Kineton, where we were separated across several buildings. At our new location we are all under one roof, which means greater advantages for our staff in terms of shorter communication paths and a greater opportunity to easily work together.”
Nicholas Evans, a director of Leamington commercial property consultants ehB Commercial, which acted for Semcon in acquiring the building, said: “The building has extremely modern facilities and has been customised for even better service. It also provides a more efficient workspace for Semcon’s staff and gives us potential to expand in the future with excellent customer service.”
“The location is excellent, close to airports and to the M40 between London and Birmingham. Several of Semcon’s customers are located in the area.
The new site will house Semcon’s workshop technical authors, graphic illustrators and animators, method technicians, owners’ information authors and product development engineers in several specialist fields. There are also such business support functions as IT, HR, finance, translation coordination, business development and project management.
