Global engineering services firm, Tata Technologies has released plans to develop a new European headquarters building in Warwick, a move which is expected to create around 200 additional positions.
The purpose-built European headquarters building represents a £16m investment from Tata Technologies in the company’s operations in the UK and Europe, and represents a tangible demonstration of the company’s commitment to the UK and its continued growth strategy.
The investment reflects the strong outlook and pipeline of opportunities Tata Technologies has in the UK and internationally. Moreover, the investment highlights Tata Technologies’ commitment to the West Midlands which is a hub for technological and innovative engineering.
The new facility also supports the government’s recently announced economic development strategy, which places jobs, skills, transport, science, and quality of life at the heart of the six-point long-term plan for the Midlands.
The expanded headquarters will reportedly create 200 additional jobs in Tata Technologies for design engineers and programme managers – creating STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) job opportunities at all levels, from graduate to more senior roles.
Expected to hold approximately 600 staff in total, the headquarters will house Tata Technologies’ engineering support services as well as a modern R&D centre that will further develop the company’s capabilities and growth opportunities, particularly in the automotive, aerospace and industrial machinery sectors.
The headquarters, which received planning permission from Warwick District Council at the end of January 2015, will be built on a 3.8 acre site located at Tachbrook Park, Warwick. Tata Technologies expects to move into the new building in the second half of 2016.
Commenting on the announcement, Nick Sale, chief operating officer of Tata Technologies Europe, said: “These new headquarters showcase our ambition to continue to grow and expand Tata Technologies’ operations in the UK and Europe. The development marks an exciting new chapter in the company’s support of engineering excellence across the region.”
