Damian Pulford, Chairman of Lancing Business Park (LBP) and MD of Sussex Transport has been based on the park for more than 20 years. During this time Damian has developed relationships with many of the businesses based here and appreciates the benefits this can bring to your business. LBP is an active community, with the BID committed to encouraging inter-park trading to support business based on the park and help cut carbon emissions.
Damian said ‘The past 18 months have been difficult for us all, whether it be dealing with impact of the lockdowns, changes in European trade and logistics or identifying additional staff and materials for surges in demand, it has definitely not been business as usual! The BID has been working behind the scenes connecting businesses on the park to help solve issues and meet demand, but we do not want it to stop there.
It is uncertain how long the recent lifting of restrictions will last, but in the meantime we have a real chance to transform supply chains, to help safeguard businesses going forward regardless of whether there will be any restriction in the Autumn. Why wait months for supplies or services from elsewhere in the country or Europe, when a business on the park may be able to help you, substantially reducing delivery times and often at a discounted rate.’
The BID website offers a free Member Directory, which lists all the companies on the park who are keen to promote their products and services, many with discounts for businesses based on the park. We ask that you please review your listing to make sure it displays your current information and if you find your business is not listed, then please complete the quick Member application so you can add your company details free of charge. This is really worthwhile, as the LBP Member Directory is on public display and is visited by thousands of businesses a year, so you will not only be promoting your business on the park, but nationwide and internationally. Don’t just take our word for it, please see below the email LBP received from Lawrence Boon, MD of Fizz Creations in Commerce Way.
Lawrence said ‘I thought I would take a minute to say a few words about our Business Park and how lucky we are to be part of such a varied and vibrant business community. After 10 years in an isolated unit in Shoreham, to be part of such a well-run park is a real pleasure. The more you look and become involved then the more you find and the greater the benefits.
Just in the past recent period Fizz has had:
Then I have to say a massive thanks for the great work the BID does with the LBP Committee who are excellent, to keep us all together, providing excellent support and advice through the pandemic, and beyond. The relationships the BID develops and maintains with the Council, the Police, Traffic, Environment Agency, Worthing & Adur Chamber and so many more help and benefit us all and keep the wheels turning, thank you.
I think as a business park we need to pat ourselves on the back, realise the fantastic opportunities we have and where possible continue to look within for our business partners.’
