New global MS HQ for Waters


Waters have officially opened their new, custom-built global mass spectrometry headquarters in Wilmslow, UK, just outside Manchester—where mass spectrometry first began. The impressive building was opened by the local MP (Member of Parliament), George Osborne, who also holds the post of Chancellor of the Exchequer in the UK Government. Mr Osborne commented “it is a fantastic site that provides many excellent local jobs and I wish them every success in the future”.

The new headquarters brings together Waters’ previous multi-site operations in the area and more than 500 employees. The new 2313 m2 building includes state-of-the-art customer demonstration laboratories, research and development capabilities and expanded manufacturing capacity. One particular challenge in the construction project was the re-homing of a colony of protected Pipistrelle bats into their own bat headquarters on the grounds, where they can continue their research into ultrasonic spectroscopy.
