Multi Million Pound New UK HQ Under Construction

1st September 2017

Local MP for Newark and Sherwood, Robert Jenrick, was among the visitors on site today to see the work being carried out by Lindum Construction to build a new £9.2m UK head office for Wirtgen Group to include sales, service workshop and storage facilities at Newark.

The German owned Wirtgen Group, whose core business is the development and production of machinery for road construction, maintenance and mineral processing, currently has a base on Whisby Road in North Hykeham and a depot site at Leicester which will be brought together at this single, purpose built site at Newark.  

Wirtgen Limited ‘s Managing Director, Paul Holmes, said: “We are delighted to have found the right premises solution for our UK operation and this investment is a clear long-term commitment by the Wirtgen Group to further develop our business here.  The central location of the site, with good transport links, the bespoke design and build service provided by a trusted construction contractor and the financial package met all our requirements. Wirtgen Limited has grown rapidly in the past few years, creating many new jobs as we have introduced new products and services to our customers.  The UK economy remains robust and we have ambitious plans for further growth to be able to meet the opportunities offered by the diverse section of road and mineral technologies we deal with.”

“Our new premises will provide us with a purpose-built building with capacity to expand in a fast-growing market and help us raise our profile with existing and potential new customers.”

The Lindum Joint Ventures Team has played a vital role in bringing this project together, working closely with Wirtgen, the landowners and key local partners including the local authority as well as the design and construction teams.

Stuart Mitchell, Lindum JV MD said: “Lindum is delighted to have played an important part in delivering this major investment project for the area which will result in the creation of a Business Park not only home to Wirtgen’s UK operation but also other companies wanting to locate here.”

"We recognise the valued help of Newark and Sherwood Council in making this development a reality.”

Andrew Muter, Chief Executive at Newark and Sherwood District Council added: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome the Wirtgen Group to Newark. This prestigious global brand is the latest sign of confidence in Newark as a great location for business.”
