Enterprising Uckfield businesses

Business Scene April 2015

Innovation has been very much a theme for Uckfield businesses in the last month.

New branding, new ideas and new products are on offer as owners and managers seek to keep their “offer” fresh and relevant to customers, writes Paul Watson.

Earlier this year I predicted that the “big story” of the year would be the number of jobs being created at the new business park, just off the A272 at Maresfield.

We now learn that a company which could be first on the site will be a national business creating 90 jobs. More here

CV Writing is another service added to ‘promoting you’, using her own Twitter and Linkedin accounts (to promote clients’ availability through more than 800 connections on Twitter and nearly 500 on Linkedin, substantially increasing network reach.

Lawson Commercial

Being a commercial property agent isn’t always straight forward. Chris Lawson from Lawson Commercial reports that when repossessing a factory for a client they discovered a cannabis farm and then found an abandoned pony on land at Maresfield where infrastructure works were about to begin.

Back on the “day job”, Lawson has a smart modern industrial unit with trade counter use to let on Riverside, part of the Bellbrook Business Park.

Oldfield Smith & Co

Oldfield Smith & Co is offering one of the most prestigious office buildings in the town to let.

Clearwater House, opposite the bus station, represents “a unique opportunity to acquire possibly the best office space in the area”.

The accommodation includes air conditioning, secure covered car parking, data wiring and high-quality internal fittings.
