Wallis Shipping Office Move – New Address

Wallis Shipping Office Move – New Address

If lockdown hadn’t been busy enough for Wallis, we’ve chosen this time to move our head office. We’re not going far and are moving less than 2 miles away to the South Suffolk/North Essex border, to the village of Langham, just outside of Colchester. 

The move marks the beginning of a new way of working for the team at Wallis, with a new flexible approach, with the team coming into the office on split days and in “pods”. Fellow Suffolk Chamber member Century Office have worked with us to provide us with all new office furniture and layout designs.

Stuart Gregory, MD of Wallis said: “We’re really excited about the office move. Relocating was on the cards anyway but the current situation confirmed it was a good idea. We realized we could move to smaller premises with more of the team working from home, and it has many benefits – including more flexibility with staff and their families, wellbeing, eco-friendly with less travel to and from the office, less paper waste, and for our overheads it meant we can work from a smaller office space.”

In addition to the office move, we have also set up our new storage unit in Nayland, so that we can improve our service offer to customers.

Our new modern barn is in a rural setting and we hope the picturesque landscapes will promote wellbeing whilst at work – and we can’t wait for a nice countryside walk on our breaks!
