Technology distributor Midwich has overhauled its offices to create a state-of-the-art working environment for its staff.

The ongoing project has so far seen the marketing department move from the first floor of the company’s Vinces Road headquarters in Diss to a new ground floor area which features artificial grass, curved glass presentation areas, “relax and inspire” zones, interactive touchscreens, projectors and videowalls.

The refurbishment is the beginning of a two-year project led by Swaffham-based commercial interior specialist Acorn Works to transform the Midwich head office.

Stephen Fenby, managing director of the Midwich Group, said: “Being a leading technology distributor, we thought it fitting that our staff worked in a cutting-edge environment, so we have started to invest in transforming our head office to a place where technology, creative use of space, and inspiring décor blend to make a workplace where people feel excited and proud to come to every day. Our new marketing department certainly brings a wow factor for visitors and the new meeting areas are already proving popular throughout the business.”

The company says the new working environment is brighter, more spacious, inspiring and more efficient, with the interactive touchscreens allowing users to present ideas in an engaging way.

Midwich recently secured 115th place in the 10th Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250 league, which highlights the fastest growing medium-sized businesses in the country. The firm, which employs 425 people, made an £8.5million profit on sales of £233.7m, according to its latest figures.
