  • 4 Oct 2018

Roof window manufacturer VELUX® Company Ltd has announced a £7 million expansion to its iconic UK and Ireland head office building at Woodside Way in Glenrothes, Fife.

A new customer service centre, training facilities, office space, meeting suite and a staff restaurant will feature within a 3,500 metre new build structure, which Glasgow-based main contractor ISG will deliver by autumn 2019.

The new building will showcase the VELUX Modular Skylight System, alongside VELUX flat roof windows and sun tunnels.

Mick Schou Rasmussen, MD of VELUX UK and Ireland, commented: “Once completed, the new building will provide our existing employees with a much improved working environment and accommodate any increase in headcount in the future.

“The new building has also allowed us to decrease our estate’s footprint by selling off a number of vacant buildings to growing local businesses, in turn boosting the local economy.

“VELUX is committed to having a strong presence in Glenrothes, Fife, so it is great to see work start on the new building at a time when the company is going from strength to strength.”

Councillor Altany Craik, Convener of the Economy, Tourism and Strategic Planning Committee at Fife Council, added: “It is fantastic to see a local business expanding and growing like this. This new building looks very impressive and showcases many of the company’s products.

“There is no doubt this will help VELUX continue to be a leading roof window business in the UK and it clearly shows their commitment to developing their operation in Fife.”
