Vision Engineering to build new global HQ
Vision Engineering has been granted planning permission to build a new 80,000ft2 (7,432m2) global HQ behind the existing facility in Send, Surrey, with construction of 23 new houses to replace the current factory.
The investment in new state-of-the-art facilities will enhance Vision Engineering’s manufacturing capabilities, providing a long-term base for continued growth, as well as both manufacturing and environmental efficiency savings.
Vision Engineering said the new factory will deliver a positive contribution to both Vision Engineering and the local economy for decades to come. Mark Curtis, managing director commented: ‘We have finally been granted planning permission to build our new head quarters. Ultimately this will enable us to implement lean manufacturing techniques, as well being able to offer improved turnaround times and plough more resources into developing our range of superior microscopes.’
