Sandwell businesses 'meet the neighbours'
Published on 8th May 2012
A business centre in Sandwell has marked its six month anniversary by holding a special ‘Meet the Neighbours’ lunch for its occupiers.
Nine businesses have moved into Pure Offices in Oldbury since it opened last October.
To mark the occasion, Sandwell Council and the Black Country Chamber of Commerce, teamed up with Pure Offices to arrange a business buffet for companies operating from the building.
It was an opportunity for the businesses to learn about support available from Sandwell Council and the Chamber of Commerce, as well as getting to know their neighbours.
Councillor Ian Jones, Sandwell's cabinet member for jobs and economy, said: "It's great to see the serviced office centre filling up.
"It's important to have high quality, affordable, modern office space which helps attract new business to the borough.
"The 'Meet the Neighbours' event was really useful for the businesses to see what the council and Black Country Chamber of Commerce can do to support and help them expand their enterprises. We look forward to meeting new occupiers as and when they move in."
Businesses that have moved into the centre since it opened include: Active PPI, Agilisys, Carewatch, NorthgateArinso, Right Networks, Sandwell Futures, Smart Solutions, Supreme Science and Wewantanycar.com.
Phil Coldicott, Programme Director of IT and business services company Agilisys, said: "Being right next to the railway station is really useful - visiting execs from London and Manchester can pop in without inconvenience. It's a really good location for that reason and we look forward to a long stay at Pure Offices in Sandwell."
