Thorn moves UK headquarters

13 October 2010 11.00BST

(UK) - Thorn Lighting is to relocate its UK headquarters from Borehamwood, Hertfordshire to the award winning Thorn plant in Spennymoor, County Durham, which houses 500 staff. The move is designed to improve service levels for Thorn's customers and sales force alike.

It is likely that 32 roles across five customer facing departments will transfer to Spennymoor and 11 central marketing positions will relocate to Thorn’s existing studio in central London. Two project management posts will move to parent group offices in Hayes. The company aims to complete this process by end of December 2010.

Paul Coggins, managing director of Thorn Lighting UK & Ireland said: “Only last year we transformed our operation in Spennymoor into the finest manufacturing facility in the UK, complete with the Academy of Light. The transfer of Field Marketing, Project Bid, Quotation and Technical Support teams to our existing Order Processing and Aftersales offices will create one point of contact for our customers. Having these functions in one location alongside design, production and training will vastly improve sales support, internal communications and decision making.

“Clearly we recognise the transfer to Spennymoor involves personal and professional decisions for the people affected, we will be supporting them with guidance and assistance so they can make well-informed judgements concerning their futures.”

The new headquarters are located at:
Thorn Lighting
Green Lane Industrial Estate
Spennymoor, Co. Durham, DL16 6HL
