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.”
