New Office Opens in Exeter

OHES are pleased to announce the opening of our new office in Exeter.

The opening of an office in Exeter shows OHES’ commitment to the region, previously having home workers stationed across the area, and provides an ideal base from which to offer our services to the South West of the UK.

The Exeter office will be home to our Environmental Claims Team in the South West, an experienced and highly qualified team who will be able to respond to incidents from the new facilities in Woodbury. The team will be headed up by our new Regional Manager, Matt Humphreys who said: “The opportunity to join OHES was one not to be missed. Starting a new office in the region is an exciting opportunity for OHES and the team to have a base in a fantastic location. The location is the South West in a microcosm… views over rolling fields, the Exe and Dartmoor in the distance.

The office itself bucks the trend of most standard office facilities with a modern interior with exposed beams and brickwork, making it a striking location to bring clients. With onsite facilities for our Remediation Team provided as well, all this gives a great head start to be a success in the region now and in the future.” The opening of our new Exeter office provides new and exciting opportunities for OHES as well as allowing us to work even more proficiently in the South West and enabling us to offer an even better service to our clients.
