Business centre group approaches 30 years of serviced office provision to long-serving tenants

21 January, 2013

Serviced and managed office tenants are about to notch up a combined total of 30 years as loyal customers of a business centre group headquartered in Exeter.

Matford Business Centre in Exeter and its office space sister Portchester Business Centre, near Portsmouth, currently provides accommodation to a range of clients including four long-standing companies that between them have enjoyed managed office services for nearly 30 years.

Independent business finance company City Business Loans moved into Matford Business Centre in 2004; just after construction design and building firm Longcross Construction. IT support service providers 1-Zero-1 relocated to the Exeter business centre on the Marsh Barton Trading Estate the following year.

Meanwhile, Channel Island retailers, hotel and hospitality venue proprietors SandpiperCI moved into the Portchester Business Centre in 2006.

Group director of business centres Melanie Harris said: “When you add up all the years and months that these companies have been using our business centres for their serviced and managed office requirements, it totals nearly 30 years. These businesses are our longest serving tenants whose needs we have worked hard to meet and exceed to ensure they remain happy under our care.”

Dan Gilpin, commercial manager of original Matford Business Centre tenants Longcross Construction, said: "As a national company, the Exeter office at Matford gives us a regional base in the West Country and offers all the same services of our main offices in the South East and Midlands without the need to manage on a daily basis. The business centre is clean, tidy and professionally run and which gives off the right impression to our clients and business partners."

Both business centres offer a wide selection of affordable serviced office and managed office space solutions, including office suites, meeting rooms, board rooms, conference facilities and virtual offices; all with 24/7 access, full security and hi-tech facilities.

Mrs Harris added: “We are proud to have served these tenants for so long. We are very happy to look after businesses that only have short-term requirements too but it is nice to provide our service on a long-term basis to develop an in-going professional relationship with these clients and their employees.”

Any business requiring serviced office accommodation for a short let or long-term leased is invited to call 01392 310310.
