BPE Business Connections is delighted to announce that Hastings Direct, who are currently utilising BPE’s Eastbourne House Rooms, have taken more space with BPE on the third floor of Berkeley House in Gildridge Road.

This means that Hastings Direct now have upwards of 90 people working in Eastbourne. New companies coming to a town have a ripple effect. Whilst there is the usual extra commercial spend there is, in addition, the spend that occurs by extra people just being in the town. Pubs, coffee and sandwich shops and shops in the town centre are all places these extra people will and are spending money.

Hastings Direct is taking advantage of BPE’s ‘Turn up and Go’ service. It is our experience that large companies who need to expand space on a temporary or semi-permanent basis really want to be able to find and move into accommodation at short notice. Hastings first approached BPE in mid August of this year and moved into furnished accommodation at BPE’s Eastbourne House on September 3.

The service includes receptionist IT support, Fibre Broadband and the hands on care that BPE have shown in their other Old Print Works site where the Adhoc Meeting Room hire business is situated.

It became apparent that even more space would be needed and BPE were on hand to organise further accommodation in the building next door, Berkeley House, where a further team from Hastings Direct started occupation. BPE have now three sites in town.

Joy Aldridge, BPE’s office services director, said, “Our commitment to provide the very best of service and support for our customers both big and small is what drives and motivates us.”
