Eastleigh: Specialist recruitment agency move to new premises

Specialist driver recruitment agency Drive Personnel have relocated to the newly-developed East Horton Business Park in Fair Oak, Eastleigh.

Following continuous expansion of the team and business, directors Chris Bryant and Simon Pritchard made the decision to relocate the business to new premises when their existing lease at Deer Park Business Park came to an end. When Unit 4 of the East Horton Business Park became available, it proved too good an opportunity to miss.

Managing director Chris Bryant commented: “We have seen significant growth over the past 18 months, which precipitated the need to look for larger office space, and we were incredibly lucky that the development at East Horton became available when it did. Not only do we now have lovely, brand new offices to enjoy, but we can offer employees secure bicycle storage and purpose-built shower and changing room facilities, which has allowed us to implement the government’s ‘Cycle to Work’ scheme.”

While the Drive Personnel team have taken up residence on the first floor, the ground floor has been let to another business subject to contract. They are also offering additional office space on the top floor for a third business to inhabit.

The new development at East Horton Business Park is now well under way, with the first building now completed. A second office building is currently under construction and is expected to accommodate a further three businesses on site.

To celebrate their move to new premises, Drive Personnel will be holding an opening event for those customers, suppliers and drivers that have supported them over the past few years. While the date is to be confirmed, it is expected to be an Ibiza themed party with special guest performer.

Drive Personnel is a specialist HGV driving agency in Southampton, providing temporary agency driving jobs to professional HGV drivers in Southampton and the surrounding areas.
