Xaar officially opened its new global headquarters in Cambridgeshire with a ceremony presided over by Chairman Andrew Herbert, CEO John Mills, CFO Ian Tichias and General Manager of the printhead business unit Graham Tweedale, alongside members of the team.
The move builds on Xaar’s recent rebrand and launch of its ImagineX platform as it continues to focus on the development of inkjet technology for printing and manufacturing applications worldwide.
Located on the Cambridge Business Park, in Waterbeach, Cambridgeshire, the new facility houses Xaar’s finance, HR, legal and marketing functions, as well as a new purpose-built R&D laboratory. Specifically configured to enhance the working environment for the team the new offices also embrace Xaar’s commitment to flexible working for employees.
Importantly, the offices also provide a significantly reduced carbon footprint for Xaar as it focuses on its sustainability objectives across the business.
Whilst the Waterbeach headquarters contains most of the corporate functions, the Huntingdon manufacturing facility will remain a key part of Xaar’s commitment to innovation, client collaboration and embracing new market opportunities.
On opening the new headquarters, John Mills, said; “We are proud of our heritage in Cambridgeshire and our new offices will provide the best working environment to help us continue to drive the global development of industrial inkjet technology use worldwide.”
Together with our partners and customers, Xaar has been transforming the world of inkjet technology for 30 years – and we’re just getting started.
With a new leadership team, new technology and new products, we have an exciting roadmap for the future – that will help our partners unleash the true power of inkjet printing and open up a world of opportunities for their business.
We believe true innovation comes from collaboration, which is why all our teams work together in Cambridgeshire where industrial inkjet was born.
Collaboration is at the core of our global partnerships too - whether we’re helping customers enhance their uptime or create production efficiencies from high-speed digitisation - we’re always innovating together.
We know that inkjet technology can not only maximise the efficiency of our partners’ businesses but help them evolve too. That’s why we go on a journey with our customers - offering expert insights and technical support every step of the way. Just like our printheads, Xaar’s partnerships are built to last.
Welcome to a whole new Xaar.
