A Weston-super-Mare company demonstrated the town’s huge potential as a business hub at a VIP-packed grand opening event to celebrate the completion of its state-of-the-art headquarters.
On Thursday 31 March, the Ascot Group welcomed over 120 VIPs, business leaders and government officials – including the Mayor of Weston-super-Mare – to its extensively renovated business campus at Worle Parkway, Worle.
The campus is part of the company’s extensive ongoing investment to build a world-class marketing, media and technology business in the local area, and visitors were given an exclusive guided tour of the facilities, followed by a drinks reception and networking event.
Spanning three sites and housing over 100 staff, the new facilities include a fully equipped gym, electric car charging points, a brand-new recording studio and a social space featuring an arcade machine, TV with streaming services, a high-tech music system and a well-stocked bar.
Andrew Scott, the Group’s Chief Executive, said: “The Ascot Campus is the result of £1.5m investment and many years of hard work, and we were delighted to open the doors to the wider business community.
“Since I started the Ascot Group in this town over 15 years ago, I’ve passionately believed in the huge potential of Weston-super-Mare. Others sometimes struggle to see that potential – but for me, its excellent location and wealth of untapped local talent make it the perfect place to do business.
“At our grand opening, we welcomed lots of people and showed them that there’s so much more to Weston than just tourism. It marked the first day of an exciting new adventure and this is only the start of our ambitions for the months and years ahead.”
The Ascot Group was founded by Andrew Scott in 2004, and is a fast-track, high growth company that continuously innovates and defies traditional business thinking.
