Expansion plans and a sound investment opportunity were the drivers behind a Peterborough company's 4 year search for new premises - a search which ended with the company, Avid Autos taking up a freehold unit on a 0.87 acre plot at Eagle Business Park at the end of 2010.
Avid Autos - vehicle bodywork and accident repair specialists approved by the insurance industry - has been trading for 16 years. For the past 8 years it has been trading from premises in Fletton High Street, which, with 11 employees and a constant flow of work, the company had outgrown.
Owner & director, Mohammed Zulifiqar was looking for the right location and at the right price. He explains:
"We had outgrown our premsies in Fletton High Street in so many ways. So, crucial to a maturing business, it was the natural desire to move away from leasehold to securing freehold premises."
"The Park, and the investment that businesses and the developer have made in it, means we will have more in common than in competition - and I think this is something which can only happen on a new business park like this."
