An artist’s impression of Karcher UK’s new Banbury headquarters has been unveiled.

The three-storey building will be adjacent to junction 11 of the M40 and will almost double the size of the company’s current base on Beaumont Road.

Work is expected to commence on the 84,500 sq ft complex in the late spring or early summer, to be completed at the end of 2015.

Simon Keeping, managing director of Karcher UK, said: “While Karcher is renowned for our commercial and domestic pressure washers, other products are increasingly coming to the fore - among them our window vas, steam cleaners and professional floor care solutions.

“These are exciting times and this opportunity, afforded by the company;s expansion, is testament to the quality inherent in Karcher - not only of our products but of our team and its ethos too.

“In order to maintain continunity admidst our growth and retain key Karcher knowhow, remaining near to our Banbury roots was crucial.”

The Germany company first announced the news of their move late last year, and the new building will feature offices, an academy, a retail centre and training facilities along with a warehouse and workshop section to allow for expansion.

The development will also include Banbury’s first Karcher Centre - a one-stop shop for both domestic and commercial customers, offering sales, service and advice for the entire Karcher range.
