Through the design and implementation of its advanced industrial automation systems, Silchester Control Systems, based in Mansfield Park, Four Marks, has increased the profitability of some of the UKs most respected blue chip companies.  As a result of this success, the company has been able to purchase the long lease of its Country Estates’ commercial business unit. Managing Director Michael Cottle credits the company’s success down to the team’s superb technical knowledge, commitment to delivering systems with real business benefits and ensuring projects are delivered on time.

This excellent reputation has earned Silchester Control Systems the respect of corporations such as Ryvita, Network Rail, NHS, GlaxSmithKline, BAE, Pfizer and P&G.  From its generous head office quarters at Mansfield Park, Silchester Control houses a team of experts, delivering a first-class service from design to implementation.

Michael adds, “It has always been a long term plan of the company to purchase our headquarters and we are delighted to have achieved that and increase our fixed assets portfolio.  It is important that our headquarters reflect the professionalism of our company, which is why we have chosen to stay here at Mansfield Park.  Its location makes commuting convenient and the surroundings make it a delightful place to work.”

Purchasing the long leasehold of its Country Estate’s business unit enables Silchester Control Systems to streamline its own profitability over the coming years, while still enjoying the benefits of residing in a managed business park which includes garden and building maintenance, allocated parking and security patrols.

As a company with a nationwide reach, Silchester Controls has also found Mansfield Park’s close proximity to the A31 and M3 to be a great advantage when commuting to other parts of the country.

 Graham Denton, managing director of Country Estates says, “It is a pleasure to see one of our longstanding clients grow so successfully over the years, not only in turnover but also in terms of its reputation amongst some of the UK’s most respected companies.”

Country Estates builds and manages business parks in southern England providing high quality office and work space for a variety of businesses, large and small. It provides spacious, flexible office space and workspace for rental, lease and purchase.
