Avnet Technology Solutions, the global IT solutions distributor and an operating group of Avnet, Inc., has moved from its old office in Bracknell to new UK headquarters in the same town. Avnet has taken one third of the prestigious 17,000 square metre facility known as The Capitol Building, which has recently undergone a comprehensive refurbishment to Avnet's specifications. The new building has excellent links to the major road and rail network in the Thames Valley as well as close connections with Heathrow and Gatwick airports, making it highly convenient for Avnet's suppliers, business partners and their end-user customers.
The new premises offer Avnet, its employees and visitors a wealth of benefits such as increased office space and additional meeting rooms, the capacity to host special events and seminars, plenty of car parking and on-site catering.
Miriam Murphy, senior vice president, North region, Avnet Technology Solutions, EMEA, commented, "The building is impressive and reflects our status as a leading IT solutions distributor. By providing our suppliers and business partners with access to highly functional and well-presented facilities we are underlining our commitment to working with all our partners to help them grow. Set in eight acres of green space yet just a few minutes' walk from local amenities, it is a pleasant and inspiring workplace, which we are confident will help to continue to attract some of the best talent in the industry."
As part of the move, Avnet has taken the opportunity to upgrade the company's demonstration facilities, where business partners and their customers can test the latest technology solutions using real-life scenarios, in a risk free environment.
