GGR Group announced today that construction work has started on a new, state of the art Head Quarters.
Located in Long Crendon, Buckinghamshire, the site is just a five minute walk from Hadeenham Rail Station, with direct links to and from the capital, London.
The build is expected to be completed November 2017.
The new head office will provide 22,000 sq ft of office, training and conference facilities and create additional room for growth and expansion
Warehouse facilities span over an impressive 80,000 sq ft and will provide sufficient space for GGRs growing range of specialist lifting equipment.

We are committed to the Long Crendon area and it is the home to a huge amount of our work force. The new European HQ will be the central hub for our business operations and will bring all of our current procedures in Long Crendon under one roof. This is a very exciting time for GGR Group and we are looking forward to the future”.
