A global leader in smart logistics and warehousing has chosen Derby as the place to establish its UK headquarters.

German-owned EPG-Ehrhardt Partner Group has taken space at the Oberoi Business Hub, a serviced office scheme on Pride Park.

The company, which provides services to a range of warehousing, logistics and airport customers, selected Derby in order to take advantage of its close proximity to the road, rail and air networks.

Gavin Clark, EPG’s newly-appointed country manager, said: “We recognised that Derby, and particularly Pride Park, is the ideal location for the UK base.

“Its central location in the country, excellent transport links and major developments on the doorstep, such as the East Midlands Gateway, will greatly facilitate our growth plans in the UK – both in terms of the customer portfolio and employee numbers.”

Kavita Oberoi OBE, founder and managing director of Oberoi Business Hub, said: “We are delighted to welcome EPG to Oberoi Business Hub and look forward to working with them to achieve their growth plans through our serviced office accommodation and call handling support.”

As well as providing office accommodation, the Oberoi Business Hub will also offer EPG its meeting and conference facilities, along with call handling services to support its existing team.

Kavita said: “Serviced office accommodation is the perfect solution for a wide range of businesses from start-ups to international companies looking for a UK base particularly in terms of having the flexibility to grow and adapt in today’s fast-moving economy.

“Call handling by a dedicated team is also an extremely cost-effective way of ensuring that a business makes the right first impression and never misses a call.”

EPG is best known in the UK for its Lydia Voice system, which optimises and speeds up picking operations using easy-to-follow voice commands.

Gavin said that the UK office opening coincided with EPG expanding its offering in the UK in line with the services available in mainland Europe and the US.

He said: “Strategically, EPG see the UK market as one of the most important logistics markets and there is a strong commitment to continue to invest here and clearly focus on growth.

“Having operated in the UK for the past five years, we now have the premium office location, excellent meeting and conference facilities and call handling service support in place at Oberoi Business Hub to take the business forward and grow in the UK.”
