Coopers Fire are excited to announce they are moving to a new headquarters in March 2020.


The new, purpose built headquarters are currently under construction in Waterlooville, Hampshire and will consist of a factory, office space, meeting rooms, and a larger car park and a separate delivery yard. The new headquarters will be more than twice the size of the current headquarters in Havant helping the business to continue to be successful in servicing its customers/global distributor network and growing its fire and smoke curtain sales.


The new 45,000 sq. ft. (4,200 sqm) premises will be located at Proxima Park in Waterlooville and will be considerably larger in size than Edward House in Havant. Coopers Fire currently employ over a hundred staff at Edward House and they are thrilled to be moving to the larger, grade A specification office space, staff facilities and factory that will offer a modern and productive working environment.
