Neil Murray, Certikin International’s Managing Director, on site Inset: Visualisation of the new HQ by HTC Architects

Certikin Secures Its Future With A Move To A New HQ The site has been cleared and the first spade has been sunk in Certikin’s newly acquired site. If all goes to schedule, the business will be moving some two miles down the road from its current location in Witney, Oxfordshire to its bigger, state-of-the-art 125,000 sq. ft premises in 2021. Since 1990, Certikin’s headquarters and main distribution hub has been based in the busy thriving market town of Witney, where from its location on the Station Lane Industrial Estate over 8,000 product lines for both domestic and commercial pools are held in stock including wellness, spas, water park slides and equipment as well as a huge range of products for both new build and retro-fit markets. The new HQ for Certikin is located on Witney’s Downs Road and is part of the 24-acre site being developed by Tungsten Properties. Located just 500

metres from a new junction on the A40, it allows easy access to Oxford and Cheltenham and, in turn, the main arterial routes of the A34, M40 and M5 motorways. Neil Murray, Managing Director for Certikin commented: “Having outgrown our existing premises, we knew we needed to move to a bigger, better site but we were determined to stay in Witney with its excellent infrastructure and pool of labour. As well as being an ideal location, Tungsten Park offers us the space and enhanced facilities that we need to suit all the complex needs of our growing business. This, along with the improved access provided by the new A40 junction, should improve our operational efficiency and secure Certikin’s future as well as that of our 130-strong workforce.” Certikin International 01993 882602 www.certikin.co.uk
