Ex-Or positions itself for further growth with move to Honeywell’s Horsham facility

Dec 14, 2016

Ex-Or, the leading manufacturer of lighting control solutions, has announced its plans to move to Honeywell’s development centre for building control systems at Springfield Road in Horsham, West Sussex. The relocation of the customer service, research and development (R&D) and technical design and support teams from Haydock on Merseyside follows an excellent year of trading for the company and will help position it for further growth during 2017.
For over 30 years Ex-Or has been helping its customers to use lighting more effectively, reducing their energy bills by up to 70 per cent, lowering their carbon footprints and improving the overall performance of their buildings.
This move supports an increase in demand from customers for integrated building controls, incorporating lighting and HVAC, and the facilities at Honeywell’s Horsham development centre provide an ideal infrastructure for technical development, support and service – all of which will offer huge advantages for Ex-Or’s global customer base.
Honeywell is already one of Horsham’s largest employers and Ex-Or’s presence in the town will allow it to take on even more people from the local area. 18 new positions are being recruited for roles ranging from customer service and technical support to sales, business development, and software and hardware engineering.
Commenting on the move, Neil Garland, Strategic Marketing Leader at Ex-Or, said, ‘We are incredibly excited about relocating to Horsham, which represents a new chapter in the history of this pioneering company. It is also a great opportunity for us to use the excellent facilities at Honeywell’s development centre and provides the perfect platform for us to achieve our strategic objectives globally’.
