A market-leading manufacturer has brought a landmark building into the 21st century thanks to an extensive refurbishment.

Earlier this month, Kloeber UK Ltd took up residency in the former ‘Bright Building’ at the Stukeley Meadows Industrial Estate, in St Margaret’s Way, Huntingdon.

Sales director, Matt Higgs, told The Hunts Post: “What we have achieved is exactly what I had in mind. The building is a nicer environment for everyone to work in and there is room to expand as we have grown every year for the last 10 years.”

The building was formerly home to Bright Instruments Co Ltd but, following its decision to move its operations to Luton earlier this year, had sat empty.

Technical director Lee Green said: “We moved in and we got the keys in February but then we had to do a massive refurbishment project to give ourselves a show room and then we overhauled all the office space – to get the building into the 21st century.” As a part of the move the directors also wanted space for staff to socialise and enough room to store its extensive product ranges.

“Bright had designed the building for them and nothing had been done since then and it was really dated,” Mr Higgs added.

The plan for the move, which is the company’s fifth in 10 years, came after it had outgrown its premises in West Newlands Industrial Estate, in Somersham.

“The business has gone through massive growth since its inception in 2006. We moved to Somersham in 2011 and about 18 months ago we realised we were going to need to move again,” said Mr Green.

The company, which celebrated its 10th anniversary in March, manufactures and supplies folding, sliding doors and bespoke glazing solutions.
