The Cavendish Group celebrated the completion of a £1.25m office development at the official opening ceremony with Norman Baker MP on Friday, February 9.
The champagne reception and open day was well attended by customers, suppliers and prominent members of the south east business community.
The substantial investment in a large purpose built office suite marks the 17th Anniversary of the successful family-owned business which has been based in Newhaven, East Sussex, for the last 10 years.
Norman Baker MP praised the company for the investment and commitment in the town.
He said: “This is sign of confidence in Newhaven but also a sign of confidence in Cavendish Communications. This is new communication and cutting edge stuff, which is a great combination. It shows a talent in the workforce and a commitment in the town to deliver what is going to be necessary in the future. This is a very good day for Newhaven and a very good day for Cavendish Communications.”
Lawrence Davison, Group Finance Director, said: “Being able to make such a large investment to expand the business is an exceptional achievement and reflects the belief and confidence that we all have in the future success of Cavendish. We are wholly committed to providing both our existing and new employees with the best possible working environment and the new offices are living proof of that commitment.”
Cavendish Communications specialises in the automation of telecommunications for businesses that range from three to more than 200 employees. The award winning company also offers low call charge plans, mobile telephony, broadband, IT, cabling, and VoIP.
Today Cavendish Communications looks after clients all over Sussex and the south east of England.
Andrew Walker, Founder and Group Managing Director, added: “We are very fortunate that the UK Telecommunications industry is an exciting and changing market place and the completion of our new offices gives us a tremendous platform from which to strengthen the Cavendish Group’s status as the largest business of its kind in Sussex and true Leaders in Telecoms.”
