TEPE TO OPEN BRAND NEW UK HEADQUARTERS

New UK Headquarters will be located at one-acre site at Cathedral Park in Wells 

Leading Swedish oral hygiene company TePe AB, renowned for their interdental brushes, have demonstrated their commitment to the UK market by investing in a brand new UK headquarters. Located at Cathedral Park in Wells, the new facility will become the head office and warehouse for the UK subsidiary of TePe AB. 

The move marks an exciting future for the company, with an expanded head office providing the opportunity for further UK investment and future job creation. Previously based in Wedmore and Cheddar, the company’s new headquarters are strategically designed to accommodate the rapid growth TePe has been undergone in recent years and provide a facility for continued growth for the future. 

Jayne Lunnon, General Manager UK at TePe, said: “Moving to a new purpose-built office and warehouse facility marks a hugely exciting time and demonstrates commitment for the future growth of the UK business.  We have potential to expand the current site as we expand the business – this will inevitably create new jobs.” 

“Equally, we’ve always had Somerset as our UK base and it was important to us that we continued to operate from the county. We’re surrounded by beautiful countryside, which is important to the pastoral side of our business and the well-being of our employees. Wells’ surrounding restaurants and hotels will also provide us plenty of opportunity to support local businesses, while entertaining our international colleagues and visitors”. 

TePe’s Wells head office will officially open on 26th January 2017.
