Business centre marks its first anniversary


year after it opened its doors to nurture local businesses, the Maylands Business Centre has been hailed a success. Dacorum Borough Council marked the centre’s first anniversary last month.


A The celebration at Maylands Business Centre.


Opened by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Eric Pickles,


the centre


has proved to be a popular and valuable resource to businesses looking for first premises.


Several of the centre’s tenants have expanded and moved on to larger premises, proving the concept behind the business centre - that with the right kind of support, small businesses can thrive.


A representative from the American BBQ Company,


a tenant at the centre, said: “Te Maylands Business Centre has provided us with a base we’ve been able to expand in, a support structure that has helped smooth the transition from home business to limited company, and access to a group of like-minded business people who have provided invaluable advice.”


Councillor Terry Douris, Dacorum’s Portfolio Holder for Planning and Regeneration, said: “Te Maylands Business Centre represents the council’s commitment to supporting small and start-up businesses to establish themselves and flourish.


“Te first anniversary is an important milestone. I’m


overjoyed at how successful the business centre has been and we are now forecasting that the centre will have paid back the Council’s investment nine months earlier than we originally planned.”


Te end of the centre’s first year also sees the launch of its website, www.maylandsbusinesscentre.org. For more information about the business centre, please visit the website.
