The Aganto offices will be relocating to Newcastle under Lyme near Stoke on Trent over the next month, to coincide with the Christmas break.
Andy Butters, Managing Director says
“We’ve experienced year-on-year growth since the company was established in 2004 as a trading entity, which is a fantastic achievement. This development marks a fresh and exciting chapter in our history. Sales, Marketing and Operations will be based at the new site, and our Site Engineers will continue to operate from the warehouse.”
Aganto has operated from the rural North Staffordshire village of Madeley since 2008, with the original Head Office having been based in Newbury, Berkshire. Since consolidating the business in 2014 the Berkshire site was closed, making Madeley the central hub for all divisions. Operations Director Mike Willis has had a pivotal role in managing change, development and growth since joining the business in 2017. Mike explains some of the reasons behind the move, commenting:
“We’ve seen lots of progress this year. There has been significant product development incorporating Aganto’s wide span building range and continued investment in sustainable solutions. Our new fleet of Volkswagen Crafter vans for example, has helped to reduce carbon footprint. As we expand and recruit more personnel, having additional space – meeting rooms and improved amenities – becomes increasingly important in maintaining high levels of customer service. We’ve simply outgrown the office facilities at Madeley. The new building is purpose-built, only a few minutes away from the town centre and offers a convenient commute for existing staff. The interior is in the process of being fully refurbished to create a comfortable and modern working environment. The wall art and graphics are designed to reflect our brand and ethos.”
The future for Aganto certainly looks bright. Despite the political and economic turbulence felt throughout the UK, the business continues to have a stronghold in the marker as leading supplier of temporary buildings and is enjoying a commercially productive year, continuing the growth trend. Is this a simply a case of having the right product at the right time? Partially perhaps, but the accumulation of knowledge and experience gained over years means the company can offer market-leading expertise.
“One of the great attributes of our product is all-round flexibility. The buildings are quick to install – in under a week in most cases, and fully relocatable. From a financial perspective, having the option to hire buildings reduces the initial outlay for our clients and helps to keep their site operations responsive. Ultimately, the strength in depth we offer in terms of experience, staff training, and overall professionalism is what sets us apart from alternative suppliers.”
