Wymondham business opens new headquarters

Wymondham-based Britannia Safety and Training officially opened its new purpose-built facility yesterday.

The new site on the Wymondham Business Park, includes a �55,000 investment in hi-tech 85ins touch-screen white boards for training, and a new telephone and computer system.

There is also a large warehouse with zoned areas for specialist training, including working at height, working with asbestos and in confined spaces.

The company offers specialist health and safety training courses for workers in a host of industries from construction to HR. Britannia 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.

Managing director Colin Wright said: 'I'm really pleased with it. It's a much more rounded service. The idea is not just to come here for training, it's a whole lot more than that. When people come here they can not only receive training but we can help them with other things such as calibrating their equipment. We will even hold records so that we can update them on things that have to be done.' Barry Dennis, president of the Norfolk Chamber, who carried out the official tape-cutting ceremony, said: 'It's a good example of a business that's got a clear vision and knows where it's going.'
