After three weeks in their new depot, Warren Access is delighted to now share further information about their new premises! You’ll now find them in the beautiful area of Hartford, just two miles from central Huntingdon in East Anglia.
It’s an exciting move that’s come off the back of a successful five years in the area, having acquired their first southern depot in 2012. The premises served them well, but their ever-expanding fleet and increasing range of training courses combined with the need for a more visible location meant it was time for an upgrade.
They started the hunt for new premises back in February this year and finally made the move in July to their new purpose-built training facility that meets all their needs and opens doors for future expansion and plans.
Set within landscaped grounds and surrounded by mature trees and open green spaces, they have fantastic air-conditioned training rooms suitable for up to 12 students, an internal training area for their mobile vertical training (scissor lifts) courses and, most excitingly, an extremely unique outdoor training experience on a mock-up piece of motorway, complete with street lighting and overhead signs. It’s the ideal location for static and mobile boom training as students experience life-like scenarios rather than pretend ones. And, for refreshments, they have a superb Refectory with a great selection for breakfast and lunch – it really does tick all the boxes!
The excitement doesn’t stop there though. The move also marks the start of a fruitful partnership with the West Anglia Training Association (WATA), who they will be sharing the premises with. Acknowledged as a leader amongst UK training providers, WATA offer engineering apprenticeships as well as a variety of courses including health & safety training, electrical and mechanical engineering, management and professional development training, and, of course, their high-quality scaffolding training which they run out of their superb Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme (CISRS) accredited scaffolding training facility. It’s the perfect combination of courses to run alongside their International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) and Prefabricated Access Suppliers’ & Manufacturers’ Association Ltd (PASMA) training.
Commenting on the move, Graeme Warren, MD of Warren Access says “We are delighted with our new premises and what we can offer our customers now. We are excited about the future and our new partnership with WATA. We have also recently expanded our hire fleet, giving us even more scope to supply our loyal customer base”.
If you’re in the area, stop by and say hello. The Warren Access dedicated team are ready to help with all your hire and training needs.
