Blackpool Airport could be the place where business takes off in the future, according to a company which has had a successful 12 months at the hub.

Business First’s Blackpool centre at Amy Johnson Way was refurbished last year and now provides a home for a range of small and medium sized companies.

The firm specialises in providing modern fully equipped office suites with shared receptions, boardroom facilities and 24/7 access.

In Blackpool it is home to such businesses as Utility Aid, Comp Tech, RKMS, Holt Green Training, VIda Education and Ruby Cosmetics but has room for more with an 8,000 sq ft office coming available soon on the first floor, with panoramic views across the rural landscape.

Hannah Eastham, Business Centre manager (pictured), said the enterprise zone would be a big boost for the area when it develops.

She said: “Business First locates its centres close to business activity, local amenities and excellent transport links in order to extract the best benefits for the tenants that take occupation within their buildings.

“Business First in Blackpool is within the enterprise zone for Blackpool airport which will bring major investment and job creation to the area.

“There are many positive and effective plans being put in place by Blackpool council to push new business opportunities and to support and pursue the commercial flight plans for the airport. We will be there to create a base for these businesses which want to grow within an expanding and successful area.”

The company was founded in 1998 to provide professional managed accommodation for businesses and has developed a stable of eight centres across the North West, including its base in Padiham.

Hannah added: “Business First facilities are growing at a great rate due to the demand on office space and modern facilities. We have many overseas clients that use the facilities located near the major airports and strive to provide outstanding and premium service to all tenants and visitors.”
