Samsung Techwin’s professional security division has relocated to Weybridge, Surrey. The new offices are in the Heights Brooklands, a riverside commercial office development. Johan Park, Managing Director of Samsung Techwin Europe, stated, ‘We outgrew the offices in Chertsey which we have shared for some time with a sister division. Our new facilities will provide our administration, customer care and technical support teams with an excellent working environment to continue to offer the highest possible levels of pre- and post-sales support to our customers throughout Europe. In addition, our new home will provide a base for our expanding UK sales teams as well as our product management and marketing colleagues.’ The move to the Heights Brooklands creates an opportunity for Samsung Techwin to offer fully equipped training facilities and a state-of-the-art demonstration room.
