Vita gets a new home and a new home page
Vita (Europe) Ltd, the world’s largest dedicated honeybee health company, has moved to new offices and launched a new-look website at www.vita-europe.com as the hub of its growing online presence.
The new offices, named Vita House, are in the heart of Basingstoke in Hampshire, an English county renowned for its beekeeping heritage. The new premises give the company a lot more space, more light and an altogether better working environment.
The new-look website gives Vita enhanced editing control over content, so Vita distributors and the beekeeping community in general can expect to see more dynamic, multimedia content that will act as a hub for the company’s growing online presence on services such as Facebook, Google+ and Twitter.
“Max Watkins and I founded Vita with just one product in 1997 and since then the company has grown remarkably and developed a distributor network that spans the globe,” said Jeremy Owen, a director of Vita (Europe) Ltd. “Today we have a steadily-growing product range of eight key beekeeping products and we are involved in a range of exciting R&D developments with academic and agricultural institutes that aim to produce even better and greener products.
“Our new very accessible and spacious offices are a pleasure for our staff to work in and we expect that the website and our growing online presence will make it easier for distributors and customers to communicate with us.”
Vita’s new offices are located in Hampshire, one of England’s most vibrant beekeeping counties, and close to a key beekeeping heritage site. Just five kilometres from the new Vita offices is Wooton St Lawrence where in the seventeenth century the Rev Charles Butler studied bees and was the first to record how bees made wax and, through his book The Feminine Monarchie, popularised the idea that the largest honeybee in the colony is a Queen and not a King.
