Aermec CEO, Alessandro Riello, and Vice-President, Raffaella Riello, have cut the ribbon (see photo) on the new purpose-built Southend headquarters for HVAC equipment supplier, Aermec UK, which will also be a hub for northern Europe.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony was particularly poignant as the building is named after Giordano Riello, Aermec’s founder who died last May.
Aermec’s 4,250 ft2 custom-built facility has two floors of office space, as well as capacity for a dedicated training room and a 2,007 ft2 warehouse. The Southend location will become Aermec’s, northern European hub and centre of excellence. Customers will benefit from on-line witness testing for controls and CPD courses that will complement Aermec’s extensive facilities in Italy.
Aermec MD, Paul Lawrence, said: “We are excited about this next new chapter for our business. Strategically located with excellent rail, road, and air links, Aermec’s new premises will also aid our customer-centric business to better engage and serve customers better with purpose-built training facilities.”
When choosing the location, Italian parent company, Aermec SpA, assessed customer access, proximity to London, ease of doing business, and strategic ability to provide technical support, training, customer sales, and business development.
