George visits Waters Corporation site for new headquarters
Today George visited the site of Water Corporation's new headquarters located on the A538 Altrincham Road in Wilmslow. The company, which designs, manufactures, sells and services analytical technologies: liquid chromatography, mass spectrometry, and thermal analysis, will consolidate its four current sites around South Manchester and Altrincham.
Waters Corporation currently operates in 27 countries, including 11 manufacturing facilities. Locally it employs over 500 people.
The new headquarters are due to be completed in 2014 and George helped plant a Copper Beech tree to mark the occasion.
"It is a great honour to be part of this special day. Water Corporation's decision to make this major investment in Wilmslow is a vote of confidence in the Cheshire economy and the British economy. I welcome the jobs and innovation Waters Corporation will bring."
