Brita Relocates to North Oxfordshire

Brita Water Filters Relocates to Bicester

"Looking back, I am convinced we made the right decision to move to Bicester in terms of the town's location and the quality of staff we were able to recruit here. Bicester is centrally located and is within striking distance of the distribution warehouses of some of our major customers, like Sainsbury, Tesco, Asda, Argos and Homebase," said Mr Banfield.

"The M40 gives easy access to London Heathrow and Birmingham airports and the Chiltern Railways service is another big asset. It is better to catch a train and be in London in an hour or less, than sitting in a traffic jam," he said.

"Another plus for Bicester was that staff were willing to re-locate from Sunbury. In addition, we were searching for somewhere to put everything under one roof - we were rattling around in three buildings in Sunbury - we had a lot of encouragement and support from Cherwell District Council. It was very keen for us to come to Bicester because of the variety of jobs we were offering - manufacturing, distribution, sales and marketing.

"We have settled in here and we have room to expand our building upwards and outwards."  For further information on Brita Water Filter systems visit www.brita.net
