UK: Continuing expansion of Glasgow-based air conditioning contractor B-DACS has prompted a move to new larger premises on the Panorama Business Village.
Around 40 customers and suppliers, as well as representatives from local businesses, attended the official opening last Friday (July 4), which was performed by Glasgow East MP and shadow secretary of state for Scotland Margaret Curran.
In her speech, Margaret Curran congratulated B-DACS on its ongoing expansion and emphasised the importance of local business to her constituency. She later described B-DACS as ‘a real East End success story’.
The move to a larger office, which is just five miles east of the city centre, signals B-DACS’ ambition for the future under the leadership of directors Brian and Diane Drummond.
“It has been an exciting two years for B-DACS as we have doubled our workforce, increased our turnover and moved into new office premises,” commented Diane Drummond.
“We would like to thank our staff, customers and key suppliers who have supported us through the change. It’s now time for us to embed the changes and ensure our service continues to exceed our customers’ expectations.”
The office launch coincides with the build-up to the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and B-DACS have used Glasgow’s Commonwealth Initiative to help them expand. Recruiting four permanent employees through the scheme, B-DACS has utilised Glasgow City Council’s Digital Graduate Internship Programme and the Commonwealth Jobs Fund.
Representatives from Jobs & Business Glasgow and the Department for Work and Pensions attended the launch in recognition of B-DACS’ efforts to provide employment to local young people.
Founded in 2003, B-DACS is a Mitsubishi Electric Business Solutions Partner and Daikin D1 Partner, providing air conditioning and hvac services, including installation and maintenance, throughout the central belt of Scotland.
The new address is 31 Lonmay Drive, Panorama Business Village, Glasgow, G33 4EP.
