Downton invests in major HQ refurbishment

Downton has recently completed a major refurbishment project to modernise and expand the facilities at its Gloucestershire headquarters. 

Located at junction 12 of the M5 just outside Gloucester, the HQ is on the site of the Downton family farm where the logistics business was formed nearly 60 years ago. The main farmhouse building houses Downton’s central office functions, with the operational side of the business having moved to a purpose-built facility, also at the Gloucester HQ, in 2013. 

The refurbishment has seen a complete overhaul of the building, which now features a brand new reception area and air-conditioned office suites, along with a complete redecoration of the building’s interior. 

Downton has also invested significant resources in upgrading security features as part of an ongoing investment programme at its historic headquarters, for which there are further projects planned in future.
