AN anti- corrosion engineering company will move into a 6,700 sq ft business unit in Frimley4 Business Park this month and make it the home of its UK operations.
Deepwater EU Ltd has taken a unit in the HiTECH development which is being specifically built for modern technology and industrial companies with their needs in mind.
New jobs for local people are being created by the new businesses moving into Frimley Business Park, including warehouse operatives recruited by Deepwater, and the administration roles they are also seeking to fill.
Geoff Camm, Deepwater general manager, said: “It’s a super location at Frimley4 Business, and the very high spec of the buildings impressed me.
“The good road links to the M3, M25 and Heathrow Airport were crucial to us, and I’ll be proud to host our senior colleagues from Texas here when they visit.
“Most of all, the major attraction is the 50/ 50 split of the building between office and warehouse. Currently, the Deepwater UK operations are on two separate sites miles apart, so we don’t feel unified. My staff and I are looking forward to the fantastic new facilities and a spacious working environment.”
Rushmoor Borough Council’s deputy leader, Councillor Ken Muschamp, and Phil Stoneman, economic development officer, made a recent visit to Frimley4 Business to meet Geoff Camm and congratulate Mr Camm on his firm’s move.
Cllr Muschamp said: “Being highly visible from the M3, Frimley4 Business is an important flagship centre for our local economy.
“It is at the heart of the M3’ s ‘ Sci: Tech Corridor’ – an economic asset of national importance, focused around high- growth, knowledgebased sectors, including aerospace and defence, ICT and digital media, pharmaceuticals and professional and business services.
“The buildings at Frimley4 Business are architecturally very pleasing with an open and airy feel – making it a very pleasant working space I’m sure.
“With my colleague Phil Stoneman, we saw the excel- lent range of facilities including the gym, café and footpaths down to the river.
“The mix of office and hitech accommodation make it incredibly attractive to a broad range of potential occupiers.”
The units will be finished to the highest contemporary style to appeal to cutting edge technology businesses.
Mr Camm added: “The ground floor will be given over to our testing equipment in a laboratory area, as well as plentiful storage space.
“Upstairs, we’ll have a large conference room and open- plan offices and all staff will benefit from a large, attractive rest room and kitchen.
“This unit gives us space to grow which is exciting.”
