AICO: “Come Along and Experience Our New Home”

Aico, the Market Leader in domestic Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms, will be moving from their current building to a brand-new, purpose built, three storey building in Oswestry, based on the A483 near the Maesbury Road Junction.

To mark one of the biggest days in the company’s history and to celebrate, Aico have organised an Open Day. This gives the opportunity for members of the public and the local community to come along and experience the new facilities. The glass fronted premises will include plenty office space, a large auditorium which can sit over 100 people, warehouse facilities, a brand new Centre of Excellence, with plenty of car parking available including wheelchair access spaces.

The Centre of Excellence is Aico’s state of the art training, meeting and demonstration facility. This includes a range of meeting rooms and demonstration areas designed to support customers. The facilities are also offered out to local businesses and the community free of charge, where they can make use of various rooms to hold meetings and training sessions. Since Aico’s original Centre of Excellence first opened in January 2015, over 2,000 visitors have received training. Housing Associations, Local Authorities, Electrical and Gas Contractors and Electrical distributors have all benefited from the bespoke training sessions offered at the Centre of Excellence.

A picturesque landscape scheme has been developed to maximise use of the undeveloped areas of the site and incorporate a ‘trim trail’ and outside areas that can be enjoyed by staff and visitors alike for recreation and exercise. The pond will be an all-year water feature providing a natural wildlife habitat, surrounded by a wildflower meadow.

Managing Director, Neal Hooper commented “After being at our current premises for over twenty years and having undergone two extensions for our Centre of Excellence, we have outgrown our current space. We are excited that our new site will not only allow us to grow as a business, but this growth will also bring new job opportunities to the local community of Oswestry.”

If you would like to attend the Aico Open Day, it takes place on Saturday 19th October 2019 from 11:00 – 15:00 at Maesbury Road, Oswestry, Shropshire, SY10 8NR.
