From Greenham Business Park to The Green Barn – Lumi-Plugin® HQ has moved.
Our new office is set in a courtyard of high-quality business units, surrounded by landscaped grounds, open fields, and endless countryside beyond. Purpose built, open plan and ultra-modern, we are all excited about settling into our new, sustainable space.
Green by name. Greener by nature. Our barn – or Barney as it is now affectionately referred to by the team – is everything we wanted it to be, and more. Being eco-friendly in its design and build was top of our priority list. It is powered by solar energy and an air-source heat pump, so we can now heat our new home with low-carbon efficiency. A great ‘conscious’ decision as it is already helping to shrink our footprint.
As you know, we are always looking to find new ways to reduce our industry’s impact on the environment so we will be sharing lots more sustainability projects and progress with you soon – watch this space.
Why the big move?
There are three very different but equally important reasons why we chose this new location.
Reason 1: One team living the dream – bringing our offices and warehouse – and teams – together under one roof.
Efficiency runs through everything we do – our team, our product ranges, and our company. And now with our warehouse and offices in one location, we are closer to our products so we can collaborate and work smarter.
The team have only had positive things to say, and nicely summed up by Ben, “Not only is this a great move as we continue to grow. It will also enable us to streamline our customer service, better integrate our product innovation teams with sales and distribution departments and seamlessly connect our entire operations.”
Reason 2: Make work feel less worky – creating a feel-good environment with space to expand and evolve.
Wellbeing is important to us. We believe that where we work influences how we work. As we open the doors on our new home, we are excited to start a new adventure and see just how far Lumi-Plugin® can really grow. With our newfound freedom we can’t wait to create even smarter products and stronger partnerships – and have fun doing both along the way.
Reason 3: Do better for everyone – delivering on our brand values and actively honoring our pledge of reducing our environmental impact and footprint. It is our ambition to be carbon neutral by the end of 2022. We understand that keeping our new house in order is just the tip of saving the ice bergs. We are pleased to announce that we now have fully recyclable packaging ensuring minimal waste. Plus, with our fleet of hybrid cars and new charging points ready to be installed soon, we are well on the way to making our ambition a reality.
We are looking forward to welcoming you and giving you ‘The Tour’ soon. Here is our new address: The Green Barn, The Long Yard, Shefford Woodlands, Nr Newbury, RG17 7EH. We’re located along the B400 – exit the M4 at Junction 14. It’s just 15 mins from Newbury and 4 miles from Hungerford.
