Continuing investment in the region despite Brexit fears
Norwich based company Liquid11 continues investing heavily in the region with the ground work commencing on six new starter units in Oulton Broad, near Lowestoft. The new units are aimed at start-ups and small businesses and will offer a modern and safe place to work or store materials. Sally Harding, Liquid11’s Business Development officer said: ‘despite Brexit fears, we feel the UK is a nation of small businesses that constantly innovate, our units will appeal to new companies and existing small business. With good access to North Lowestoft and the train station, we think it’s an excellent location and are excited to see what new buiness we will meet over the coming months’.
Liquid11 also entered into a partnership with local construction company, Mattoms Builders to build 6 new executive homes in Gt Yarmouth which will represent around 2% of the new homes needed to support plans for the town. Pat Cullumbine the director for Mattoms builders said ‘our region is crying out for new homes and whilst there is a buoyant market in mass build homes by existing large scale developers, there is a gap in the market for traditionally built, high spec homes for management and executives moving to our region, our homes will help to fill this gap.
Local councils and planning authorities are supportive of smaller builders and have been helpful in making this and other smaller developments possible in the town.
The Liquid11 group employs around 50 people in the region and typically a further 15 contractors are employed at any given time. Their total investment over the last 12 months in new projects has been circa £3,000,000. The technology focused company continues to grow despite the economic uncertainty.
With three new products launched in the last 12 months the outlook for 2018 is positive for the company.
