Vanguard Healthcare Solutions, operators of a pioneering fleet of mobile healthcare facilities in the UK, has developed a purpose-built, 6,600m2 transport and logistics facility in Manningtree as part of an expansion programme for the business. The renovation of the former Brownfield site at the Riverside Business Centre, Station Road, Lawford will be home to 11 permanent members of staff and has the capacity to house the full fleet of 50 mobile healthcare units.
The buildings, occupying units 1-4, have been completely refurbished, with the new office block purpose designed to house a Customer Innovation Centre, a state-of-the art conference facility for customer activity. As part of this business expansion, two new members have joined the Vanguard Healthcare Solutions team as project engineers. It is expected that the move to these contemporary facilities will increase employment opportunities in the area and Vanguard Healthcare Solutions is committed to recruiting from the local talent pool.
The new facility was officially opened in a ribbon cutting ceremony by the local mayor, Councillor Mrs Ruth Stocks, at 1pm on Monday 11th December 2017. Employees, board members and local business figures came together to mark the opening of this progressive facility and celebrate the company’s move to the area.
David Cole, Chief Executive of Vanguard Healthcare Solutions, comments, “We pride ourselves on the seamless delivery of our units into the field and the smooth running of additional surgical capacity from set up to implementation, with minimal disruption for our clients. With a fleet of nearly 50 mobile healthcare units, and an active global logistics programme, we needed a purpose-built facility centrally located within a thriving business and local community.
“We’re delighted to have renovated the site at Manningtree and created such a high-quality business facility, which will offer employment opportunities to the local community. This development confirms that Vanguard Healthcare Solutions is at the forefront of British business growth and expansion – a position we’re delighted to hold.”
