A BUSINESS centre manager has called on the next government to do more to help small- and medium-sized firms in the region.
Simon Longden, director of Frodsham Business Centre, says better support is the key to Britain’s recovery from recession.
“The last couple of years have been a very difficult time,” he said.
“It is crucial that whichever party wins the General Election they do all they can to invest and support these firms.
“The long-term stability of our local and national economy depends on it.
“Affordable centres like Frodsham Business Centre encourage more new firms to grow.”
Businesses based at the Bridge Lane centre include a sports activities company for local schools, an accountancy firm, a chemical trading company and an executive chauffeur service, as well as successful IT specialists, finance, legal and mechanical firms, proving the centre is able to accommodate a wide range of businesses.
“In the last few months we have seen a definite upturn in businesses looking to move their operations into more affordable office space in commuter towns like Frodsham,” said Mr Longden. “I would like to see the new government show support for business centres like ours that are helping businesses to succeed.”
