New home for Wymondham-based training specialists

A specialist Wymondham training provider offering courses from industrial safety to HR is moving to a new purpose-built facility following a �55,000 investment.

Britannia Safety & Training's new site, close to its existing premises at the Wymondham Business Park, features three conference rooms, including 85in interactive white boards, and a large warehouse with zoned areas for specialist training, including working at height, working with asbestos and in confined spaces.

The company, which has a �650,000 turnover, has invested heavily in the new facility, which comes at a time of rapid growth for the six-year-old business, which has seen a trebling of its output.

Colin Wright, managing director, said: 'Since starting Britannia Safety & Training in September 1998, it has been my aim to create a dedicated training facility, which would meet the needs of the many varied aspects of health and safety training which the company delivers, under one roof.

'I am obviously delighted to have realised that goal and to launch the all new Britannia House, which is a landmark in the company's history.

'This is a very exciting time for Britannia Safety & Training and we look forward to the future.

'We also anticipate creating more new roles for the local job market and will be recruiting for a telesales executive in October.'

Emily Alger, sales co-ordinator, said while many training companies were limited by the fact that courses could only run when minimum numbers were reached, Britannia could deliver bespoke and on-site courses.

It was also operating an 'open course calendar', so companies or individuals can select the courses they would like to attend, at a date and time that suits them.

The company has also appointed Mark James to the newly created role of health and safety training consultant.

He will take responsibility for the company's training programme and customer care, working hand-in-hand with the sales and marketing team to ensure consistency in service and course delivery.

The move to the new premises will be celebrated at a champagne launch party on September 15.
