More Tea, Warrior?

In 1706, Thomas Twining started selling a new drink in his coffee house on London's Strand: Tea.

It's hard to imagine England without tea now, but Mr. Twining's company was at the forefront of its importation and success. By 1837, Queen Victoria had granted Twinings a Royal Warrant - and R Twining & Co Ltd remains the official supplier of tea and coffee to HM The Queen (since 1955) and HRH The Prince of Wales (1993) to this day.

The vast majority of Twinings tea consumed in the UK is processed and packed at their primary factory in Andover. The firm - now part of Associated British Foods - contacted Glasdon last year to work with us on a new Team Coordinator's Office for the production floor.

Twinings chose the Warrior™ Modular Building System for their project. Warrior buildings can be configured in sizes from 1.22m x 1.22m to 7.32m x 2.44m to allow for maximum flexibility. Similar in style to our Beacon™ Modular Building System, Warrior is constructed using a corrosion-free aluminium framework and plastic-coated steel panels, with a fully insulated glassfibre-reinforced polyester pitched roof or composite panel flat roof.

Twinings specified their new office building with full-height windows around three sides to allow for unobstructed views of the production floor. The building was delivered on time and fully assembled, and unloaded from our specialist delivery vehicle by crane. If required, Twinings can use a crane to move the building to a new location at a later date - another advantage of a pre-assembled solution.

Twinings staff are very happy with their comfortable new office, and remarked to our team that the amount of noise reduction it provides compared to the rest of the factory is particularly impressive. The company has taken further pride in their new addition by having the windows custom etched with their logo.
