Xaar's new Waterbeach premises contains most of its corporate functions
Xaar has officially cut the ribbon at its new global headquarters in Cambridgeshire with a ceremony presided over by chairman Andrew Herbert, CEO John Mills, CFO Ian Tichias and general manager of the printhead business unit Graham Tweedale.
The new premises is part of the company’s recent rebrand and launch of its ImagineX platform as it continues to focus on the development of inkjet technology for printing and manufacturing applications. Located on the Cambridge Business Park, in Waterbeach, the new facility houses Xaar’s finance, HR, legal and marketing functions, as well as a new purpose-built research and development lab.
Xaar has also confirmed that the offices provide a ‘significantly reduced carbon footprint’ for the company as it focuses on its sustainability objectives across the business. Whilst the Waterbeach premises contains most of the corporate functions, Xaar says its Huntingdon manufacturing facility will remain a key part of its ‘commitment to innovation, client collaboration and embracing new market opportunities.’
Speaking about the new headquarters, John Mills, said, ‘We are proud of our heritage in Cambridgeshire and our new offices will provide the best working environment to help us continue to drive the global development of industrial inkjet technology use worldwide.’
