Zentia expands horizons with the grand opening of its Gateshead Innovation Centre

Zentia, the UK’s market leader in complete ceiling solutions, is excited to announce the grand opening of its Innovation Centre in Gateshead, created to contribute to the growing vibrancy of the North East as a hub for architects and specifiers seeking inspiration and industry networking.

The North East and Newcastle region is becoming increasingly recognised as a creative hotspot for architects and design enthusiasts. In response to a growing demand for a collaborative and inspiring space, Zentia has created its Innovation Centre, designed to be a destination workspace that fosters innovation, collaboration, and creative exchange among architects, specifiers and all those passionate about shaping the future of the built environment.

The Mayor of Gateshead, Councillor Eileen McMaster, will be officially opening the Innovation Centre in early December at Zentia’s grid plant on Newcastle’s Team Valley site, signifying the importance of the Innovation Centre as a regional milestone. The Innovation Centre will offer state-of-the-art facilities for meetings across two boardrooms, which can fit six people and ten people respectively, along with extra space for products to be artfully displayed.

The larger main space can fit up to 60 people, contains AV facilities for presenting, and will showcase Zentia’s latest product innovations in a thoughtfully designed ceiling grid. Graham Taylor, Sales and Marketing Director at Zentia shared their enthusiasm about the project, saying, “We are proud to continue investing locally and bring Zentia’s Innovation Centre to Gateshead, creating a regional hub that embodies the spirit of creativity and collaboration. We look forward to welcoming architects and specifiers to this inspiration space and working together to shape the future of our industry.”

Zentia is looking forward to inviting architects, specifiers, and design enthusiasts to experience the grand opening of the Innovation Centre and explore the endless possibilities it has to offer. Mayor of Gateshead, Councillor Eileen McMaster, said: “Zentia’s new Innovation Centre is a fantastic facility and a testament to the company’s significant investment in the Gateshead area. It’s amazing to see a UK manufacturer creating local job opportunities for our communities and I’m confident that this will open up lots more opportunities for Zentia.”
