Official Factory Opening Event

On Thursday 1st February, we officially celebrated the move to our custom-built manufacture facility by opening up our new home to a number of local stakeholders and London clients, with guests being given guided tours of our site throughout a Thorpes working day.

Our intention was to not only showcases both our new and existing capabilities, but to also provide an excellent networking opportunity for all involved with many long term supporters of our business reconnecting with connections old and new.

We were delighted that many guests have sent us well wishes for our future following the event:

I’m pleased we’ve been able to help Thorpes to move into a brand new headquarters. We’re committed to supporting the local economy and I wish Thorpes every success as they continue to grow.
— Deputy Council Leader, Byron Rhodes
It was a pleasure to meet your team and tour your factory, which is a real credit to you!
It was a real pleasure and honour to see what you have achieved, you should be proud. Your hospitality it was fantastic now time to relax and enjoy your success!

 

During the tour our guests followed certain members of our staff around the site, both throughout the factory  and  office departments. Seeing production in action gave our guests a unique insight into our working practices, varied skillset and the wide reaching benefits our new site will bring.
