Wintech moves to new HQ to grow

Wolverhampton | | Published:

A Wolverhampton-based specialist façade engineering consultancy has completed a move to new, larger premises aided by an £890,000 financial package from Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking, helping to create more than 20 new jobs.

Wintech Group's new 10,000 sq ft head office in Pendeford is double the size of the firm's previous base, and has provided improved facilities for an additional 15 engineers and scientists as well as space to further develop its services.

These include façade engineering and consultancy, wind engineering, scientific and mathematical modelling and the analysis of construction materials.

Following its move into the new building, the firm is now looking to maximise its growth potential as demand for its services continues to increase.

This includes capitalising on export opportunities in the Middle East and North America to further consolidate its reputation as a centre of excellence in the specialised field of façade engineering, both at home and overseas.

Founded in 1983, Wintech provides specialist façade engineering consultancy and design services as its core business.

Having steadily expanded over a 30-year period, the group now employs more than 100 people in a range of specialist sciences and disciplines, solely focused on the aesthetic, environmental and structural challenges crucial to the successful completion of the envelope of modern buildings.

Wintech Group's most recent projects include The Cube and the New Central Library in Birmingham, for which it provided design and consultancy support. Working with world-renowned architects on some of the world's tallest buildings in conjunction with its offices in London and Dubai, the Group generates an annual turnover of over £7m.

Wintech CEO Chris Macey said: "Lloyds Bank has been a trusted partner in enabling us to realise our growth ambitions for more than 30 years and its support in helping us to complete the move to our new head office has been invaluable.


"It's our belief that the key to growth is primarily based on the skill set of our engineers and service and, as a quality-focused company, we are continually looking to develop and build on our offering to ensure we're recognised as a market-leading firm in this specialised niche of the construction industry.

"Our new offices offer the right internal infrastructure and facilities to more effectively encourage profitability, create a better environment for our people and give us the capacity to grow our business as we look to fulfil our long term expansion objectives."

Adrian Burden, relationship director at Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking, said: "We're committed to supporting the growth ambitions of small business owners, which is why we've pledged to grow our net lending to small and medium sized businesses at least £1billion every year until the end of 2017.

"Wintech Group's move to new premises has already led to the creation of jobs for five highly skilled engineers and leaves it well-placed to expand further going forward."
