Bakery equipment supplier RH Hall is moving to a new 23,000sq ft headquarters in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire.

There are plans to install a development kitchen at the site, which will showcase equipment and also become the Southern base for the Food Development Association (FDA). Opening in April, it will hold regular baking events and demonstrations.

MD Ray Hall said the new HQ, close to the current site, would provide more office space for increasing staff numbers and greater warehousing. He added that this would enable the firm "to meet plans for continued expansion and increased product range holding".
