Marel’s UK manufacturing and office facilities have been upgraded with the existing premises renovated and extensions added to the workshops, office and reception. The upgrade is in line with Marel’s strategy to strengthen the Marel brand and offer employees a modern working environment that will support the company’s goals.

With a renovated manufacturing facility in Colchester and a modern sales and service office in Birmingham which opened in 2016, Marel is in a stronger position to offer better service to new and existing customers in the UK and Ireland.

The United Kingdom and Ireland are important markets for Marel. In total, 184 employees work for Marel in the UK and Ireland, 76 of whom work for sales and service with their primary location being the sales and service office in Birmingham. Another 108 employees are based in Colchester where the manufacturing of Marel’s end-of-line products is based.

‘The new development in Colchester is a visual milestone in our locations development and re-enforces the hard work, commitment and determination by all in working towards making this location one of the leading locations and functions within the global Marel network,’ said Marel UK general manager Graeme Rolinson.

‘We must now use this fantastic facility combined with the progress we have made over the last two years to strengthen our position not only within Marel but also in the global markets that we serve.’
