TWI and South Cambridgeshire

TWI remains at its original home in the grounds of Abington Hall in South Cambridgeshire. However it now occupies a prestige headquarters building, adjacent to the old hall, which was developed as a part of the creation of MEPC’s Granta Park.

An integral part of the Abingtons for many years, the organisation’s links are strong within the village and the surrounding communities. Many employees have settled in the area because of TWI’s welcoming countryside working environment.

TWI is pleased to have made its contribution to the prosperity of this part of South Cambridgeshire. Our confidence in investment is testimony to our belief that it remains the perfect location from which to continue the company’s development  in the 21st century.
