Sally Taylor Returns To Langstone Technology Park Business Suites To Celebrate A Very Successful First Year! Created on 23/03/2011 10:22:00
BBC South Today’s anchor news presenter Sally Taylor yesterday was back at Langstone Technology Park (LTP) in Havant to help celebrate a very successful first year for the Business Suites.
Over 30 guests made up of onsite tenants, local businesses and networks, representatives from the Council and press joined Sally and the Fasset team at Langstone Technology Park for lunchtime drinks and nibbles, to toast the success of these smaller, flexible office units.
Gary Medlow, Managing Director at Fasset, which manages the Park commented: “We had a vision to create an office solution for smaller companies who were perhaps looking for the next step from home working or office sharing. Langstone is a great address, impressive site and has meeting rooms, Starbucks and restaurant all of which help to create an excellent impression for clients and visitors.”
The Business Suites were a substantial investment for Fasset and provide ready set-up workstations for businesses ranging from 1 – 28 employees who want flexible and competitively-priced accommodation, IT support, high-speed internet connectivity and free parking.
Gary continues: “In twelve months what has been achieved is a thriving, vibrant business hub, filled with a diverse range of business of all shapes and sizes. The fact that we could have filled these twice over is tantamount to the fantastic facilities and support available onsite. As we move through 2011, we follow with great interest how these businesses grow and develop and look forward to welcoming new companies into the mix.”
Sally Taylor, who is an MBE for services to regional broadcasting, was again very complimentary about the Business Suites and the Langstone site as a whole. She praised the business community and entrepreneurial spirit which has been created here; along with the support network offered available to help businesses realise their potential and develop in the way they want.
A few of the business tenants took the opportunity to give the guests an insight into their businesses over the last 12 months and share any success stories:
Ian Thatcher, Seamless Media Ltd,
"Our business has very much felt the effects of the recession, however with the support of Fasset and the flexibility offered by the business suites, we are now growing from strength to strength. Over the last 12 months, we have maintained relationships with both our UK and international clients, and have been short-listed for two of this year's IVCA awards."
Raglan Tribe, MD Mindsheet Ltd,
“Managing business in both the good times and bad-times is all about flexibility and we couldn’t ask for a more flexible business partner than Fasset.”
Peter Reed-Forester, Managing Director, CommunityUK.net Ltd
“I believe that the facilities, support and community provided by and within Langstone Technology Park have effectively ‘incubated’ CommunityUK.net and allowed us to develop into a strong and healthy organisation that is now embarking on a major and rapid growth path across the UK. Thanks Langstone!”
The next twelve months are already shaping up to be exciting at the Park, and plans for a business ‘incubator’ were hinted at along with more business suite offices being launched. The conferencing facilities have been booked by some high profile clients such as the IoD who are running a members evening in June. Plus Fasset are providing space for a local community cast play in May and intend to host the Havant 6th Form end of year art show once more.
Gary concludes: “With a 91% customer satisfaction score in 2010, we know that the facilities onsite are first class and as tenants begin to invest in office space, I feel very optimistic about the business regeneration happening along the M27 corridor and confident that LTP is leading the way with facilities and initiatives all ensuring that it is without a doubt, a great place to work.”
