Gallagher will develop its new European headquarters in Warwick in the UK as part of a strategic move to position itself as the security solution of choice for nations in the 5-Eyes Alliance – UK, USA, Canada, Australia and NZ.

“Gallagher aims to be the security solution of choice for countries in the Five Eyes alliance,” said Mark Junge, global general manager for security. “With discussions already underway with several UK government agencies, this new facility provides the ideal base to support our extensive growth plans for the region.”

Gallagher has invested in the development of solutions that comply with UK access control, perimeter intrusion detection, cybersecurity, and high security standards. Its UK-certified high security solutions build on Gallagher’s government-approved solutions for the U.S., Australian, and New Zealand markets.

Its new 1500sqm office with onsite café will allow Gallagher to host prospective clients, hold events, and support channel partners and customers with meeting, conference, and training facilities. The development also includes a 670sqm warehouse, with land available for future expansions. Development is set to begin in September 2020, with the team aiming to occupy the building in mid-2021.

“We’re very excited to announce this new facility for our UK and Europe operations,” says Richard Huison, regional manager for the UK and Europe. “We’ve experienced rapid growth over recent years and have fast outgrown our current premises. This new facility will enable us to showcase our exceptional security solutions while providing outstanding support for our channel partners and customers.”
