A Milestone in Our Journey Towards Innovation and Sustainability

At Warren, we are thrilled to share the latest development in our ongoing commitment to innovation and sustainability. We recently had the honour of welcoming Chris Starkie from Norfolk County Council (NCC) to officially open our new laser cell. This event marks a significant milestone in our company’s history and showcases the collaborative efforts that drive progress in our industry.

A major investment in cutting-edge technology

The new laser cell represents Warren’s largest single investment to date, totaling £1.5 million. The project has been a long-term vision brought to reality, and it is only through the generous support of Norfolk County Council’s grant of £100,000 that we were able to achieve this ambitious goal.

Partnership with Norfolk County Council

Our collaboration with NCC has been instrumental in the realisation of this project. As part of our application for the grant, we worked closely with NCC on a comprehensive decarbonisation plan. This plan not only justified our investment but also aligned with our commitment to sustainable practices.

Creating jobs and opportunities

The benefits of this investment extend beyond technological advancements. We are proud to announce that the establishment of the new laser cell has already enabled us to employ seven new staff members. Among these are four apprentices, who represent the future of our industry. By providing these young professionals with the opportunity to learn and grow within our company, we are investing in the next generation of engineering talent.

Supporting the transition to Net Zero

This project is part-funded by Norfolk County Council through the Business Transition to Net Zero Scheme. This initiative is designed to support businesses in their efforts to reduce carbon emissions and transition to more sustainable operations. At Warren, we are committed to playing our part in this vital global effort.

Thank you to Chris Starkie and Norfolk County Council for their invaluable support.

Warren Services Hosts Thetford Business Forum HR Meeting: A Step Towards Sustainability

We recently opened our doors to host the Thetford Business Forum HR Meeting, at our Brickfields Way site. This event proved to be a significant milestone in fostering local business collaboration and advancing sustainable practices within the community.

The gathering commenced with a factory tour, providing attendees with an up-close look at Warren’s operations. Participants gained valuable insights into manufacturing processes and the integration of sustainable practices within such frameworks.

Following the tour, the event transitioned into a thought-provoking presentation delivered by our Managing Director, Will Bridgman. Will shared the company’s sustainability journey, emphasising the importance of environmental stewardship and the tangible benefits it brings to both business and society.

A notable aspect of the event was the contribution of guest speakers Maria Shinn and Sarah Everitt, who brought their expertise to the discussion.

The large turnout at the forum underscored the enthusiasm and support within the local HR community for collaborative endeavours aimed at driving positive change. We express our gratitude for the opportunity to host such an engaged and proactive group.

Looking ahead, Warren eagerly anticipates future gatherings of the Thetford Business Forum HR Meeting, which occur bi-monthly. These gatherings not only serve as platforms for networking and knowledge exchange but also reinforce the collective commitment towards sustainable business practices.

Through engaging discussions like these, participants reaffirmed their dedication to driving positive change and shaping a more sustainable future for generations to come.
