Centurion, an above-the-neck personal protective equipment specialist, has unveiled a brand new training and product innovation suite at its global headquarters in Thetford.
The company says the six-figure-investment in the Clarity Counts University and other substantial improvements in the head office will provide customers and employees with a dedicated education and training centre, in order to offer the best insight and understanding of above-the-neck safety standards and Centurion’s product range.
Hundreds of distributor partners, specifiers, wearers and employees will directly benefit from access to the Clarity Counts University.
Officially opened by Bill Davis, a former director of the business and a direct descendant of James Adler, who co-founded the business in 1879, the development of the Clarity Counts University forms part of a wider investment at the Thetford headquarters to support Centurion’s current growth and future ambitions.
This includes several new meeting rooms that have been specifically designed to host customers, a new open office design that extends across two stories with 12 additional workspaces, a variety of factory refurbishments including revamped rest facilities, LED lighting and other energy saving investments across all the production and warehouse areas.
Jeff Ward, CEO at Centurion, said: “Customer partners can now see products being made, tested, showcased and explained. It is a destination now for partners to spend the day with us and be reminded that there is not a more important purchase decision than the right head protection system for workers shaping our world.
“The renewed building and showrooms mark an exciting chapter for us. It’s a chance for us to strengthen relationships and create strategic partnerships with our customers and suppliers, ensure we offer the best training in a future-thinking working environment, and showcase our range of premium product solutions.”
