In July construction began of the new Operations Centre adjacent to the trading floor. The Operations Centre will include accommodation for all the support services for the trading floor including IT, finance, maintenance, security, cleaning and Epping Finance. The Operations Centre will also contain a dedicated common/meeting room for the buyers and in due course a coffee shop.

Peter Matthews, Chief Trading Officer, said “The Operations Centre brings to the trading floor all personnel who provide a service to our Market Agents, Salesmen, Producers and Buyers. We will be able to improve yet further the standard of our service to these important stakeholders”.
