Breathe Safety Group have relocated to a new 21,000 sq ft warehouse at Bournemouth Airport’s Aviation Business Park after outgrowing their former premises.
Previously split between Ferndown and Verwood, the team have consolidated their operations at the new facility, complete with offices and storage yard.
Founded by Director Nick Aris in 2001, Breathe Safety now specialises in confined space breathing apparatus and provides systems, training and equipment for hazardous industrial environments – particularly in the oil and gas industry.
“We have an ambitious growth plan which includes more manufacturing, service support and skilled labour provision”, said Nick.
“So when this unit became available at Aviation Business Park, it was the perfect solution.
“The combination of an outside yard, covered warehouse space and offices was very important to us.
“Our new home has all of that, in a great location.”
The business currently employs around 55 staff, half of whom will be permanently based at the new site.
That’s on top of four remote sites serving the whole of the UK and Europe.
Their new home at Aviation Business Park is owned and managed by Rigby Real Estate, who are currently developing a new 39,000 sq ft industrial warehouse unit, ABP39.
It comes as part of an ongoing expansion to deliver more than a million square feet of development, generating an estimated £100 million for the Dorset economy.
Mike Murray, Commercial Real Estate Director for Rigby Real Estate, added: “We’re delighted to welcome Nick and his team to the park.
“They join more than 200 national and international businesses with some 4,000 employees across the mixed-use estate, and we continue to see strong interest from a range of potential new occupiers.”
