ETC Ltd announces eco-building move as part of expansion plan

Date Posted: 6/17/2024


ETC has announced plans to expand its business with the relocation of its London operations to a new, state-of-the-art eco-building. The move supports ETC’s expanding business and service offerings as well as planning for future growth.

The new space – which is located in west London’s Greenford – is more than double the size of ETC’s existing building and will feature enhanced facilities to accommodate the needs of its customers and workforce.

The design of the new building is being developed by ETC with its own in-house team, in-line with the company’s global design approach. There will be more capacity for training, logistics, meetings, and dedicated areas for ETC’s customers and employees. The company’s dealers and end users will benefit from having access to an expanded training program and bigger demo spaces. The additional logistics space will better support the business’s growing operations and will hold significantly more inventory to meet the needs of ETC’s customers.

Another key consideration for choosing the new building is its focus on sustainability – the space holds a BREEAM Outstanding certificate and a -32 A+ EPC Energy rating. It is the first industrial refurbishment of its type in the world that is completed to BREEAM Outstanding standards, meaning it is in the top 1% of non-domestic buildings in the UK. Power is derived from roof mounted solar panel banks generating 180 kW with on-site battery storage of up to 80 kWh of energy. The building also has electric vehicle charging points, and a rainwater harvesting system feeding a 144 m2 external green wall. 

With plans to move by the end of the year, the expansion reflects ETC’s continued business growth and a focus to better serve its customers and end users with a larger physical presence in London.

ETC General Manager, Matthew Brookfield comments: “At ETC we recognise that building great products for the industry is only part of the story. We want to ensure that we can give our customers the best possible experience by offering the best facilities. This new building will allow us to speed up the time it takes to get products to customers, improve our ability to showcase and demo our products, and increase the scope and frequency of our training programmes, all whilst significantly reducing the business’s carbon impact. Our existing building in North Acton has been our home for nearly 30 years and we’re looking forward to our next chapter in the new building.”
