CHR Hansen Ireland Ltd. develops, manufactures, and distributes bioscience-based ingredients to the food, health, and animal feed industries. Its international parent company has come a long way since it was founded in by Christian Hansen in 1873; it has expanded, extended the range of its products, and spread throughout the world, to the point at which its products are now consumed by over a billion people every day. At every stage in this expansion, it has taken care to ensure that each step in its evolution is researched and tested.
The company takes pride in its concern for quality and its stringent environmental policy. Their product innovation is based on more than 30,000 microbial strains which they call “good bacteria”; these bacteria enable food manufacturers to reduce the use of chemicals and other synthetic additives.
CHR Hansen recently occupied new premises in Fota Business Park, just outside Cork City, and close to Fota Wildlife Park, one of Ireland’s major tourist attractions.
To be in keeping with the company’s mission statement and reputation, the new offices in Fota Business Park needed to be of the highest possible standard. Doyle Interior Systems’ experienced designers worked with the management of CHR Hansen and Office Partitions to plan the best possible office layout, taking the positioning of the individual offices, the power, and the data positions into account. The choice of Office Partitions and the Interfinish Omega Partitions that are one of its flagship products was taken after careful consideration.
The partitions they used were the Interfinish Omega range throughout the floor space. These partitions are double glazed glass with integrated blinds, and they blended perfectly with the solid walls, which are demountable, and vinyl covered. As Interfinish Omega Partitions can be repositioned if and when circumstances change, they contribute to the client’s drive for sustainability.
The result is a light, modern, attractive office space of the highest quality, completed on time and within the budget.
The care that CHR Hansen’s management took in choosing Office Partitions and Doyle Interior Systems has proved to be entirely justified.
