Baader touches down in Rugby in search of space

Fish, poultry and meat processing equipment maker Baader has inaugurated new, bigger premises in the UK to accommodate growth and leverage on its local market presence – although it has left Scotland to do so.

The new premises in Rugby, Warwickshire offers 11,000 square feet of space, compared to the 1,000 sq ft the company had at its site in Aberdeen, which has now closed.

Baader said the new UK HQ is centrally placed in Rugby’s industrial zone with good road and rail connections, enabling the company to strengthen and speed up its supply chain and service offerings for fish, poultry and separator technology.

Strategic needs

“This move represents an exciting development for Baader UK,” said the company’s UK managing director, Simon Jahnke.

“The new location perfectly fits our strategic needs. We have grown our team to 14 employees in the last few years since 2009 and are pleased that the new space can accommodate our growing presence.”

“The United Kingdom has been an important market for Baader for over 90 years,” said executive chair Petra Baader. “It was our first export market as early as the mid-1920s. The extension of our local presence here is a testament to the growth and success our company has experienced since its founding.”
