Global Infusion Group companies consolidate under one roof
Global Infusion Group, a global catering, hospitality and brand experience company, has announced its catering divisions, GIG and Eat to the Beat, have joined the brand logistics arm of the business, e2b, in its new warehouse at Symmetry Park in Aston Clinton.
The new facility has been a key part of the business’ expansion plans for the past three years, along with the plan to consolidate the individual companies under one roof.
Whilst the move was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the delay allowed the company to utilise the existing kitchen facility in Chesham and fulfil contracts with NHS Buckinghamshire Healthcare Trust and the Dragon’s Heart Hospital in Cardiff.
Development of the Aston Clinton site was also delayed due to the pandemic, however work on a Central Production Unit (CPU) and working kitchen is now underway. Plans for a large cafe/restaurant, that will be open to the public and accessible to the employees of the local businesses in Symmetry Park, are also going ahead, in addition to plans for a brewery, a distillery and a bakery.
Global Infusion Group CEO, Tony Laurenson, said: “Key drivers in securing the new warehouse at Aston Clinton were the need for additional space for e2b and to be able to consolidate all the Global Infusion Group businesses under one roof. Our relocation plans have been in the making for more than three years. The aspiration was to create an incredible state-of-the-art facility that would serve our growing needs for many, many years to come.
"Our original vision has been tempered by the ongoing situation surrounding Covid-19 and its devastating impact on the events industry. However, we remain hopeful that we can still implement many of the ideas as it is vital that we build a solid foundation for the business to bounce back from when we emerge from the pandemic.
