BRD have moved

In order to allow for the future expansion of BRD, we have moved to new offices at Hawthorne Villa, 1 Old Parr Road, Banbury, Oxfordshire, OX16 5HT.  Phone numbers and emails all remain the same.

Following aquisition of Hawthorne Villa towards the end of 2011, we have started the new year with a major refurbishment project to convert a vets practice into our new offices. Finally the new walls have gone up, the electrics re-wired and a new heating system that works have all come to fruition and we moved in to the smell of fresh paint on 20 March.

The move gives the team the benefit of on site parking, a new dedicated equipment store / sample storage facility and much, much, more office space.
