New Exeter office for EIC
Building services provider EIC has added a third delivery centre to its South West offering by opening a new office in Devon. The launch this month will bring EIC’s national network of regional offices to 13, and will be the third addition this year.
The new Exeter office, based at Matford Business Park, will work in conjunction with EIC’s existing regional offices in Redruth, Cornwall, and Plymouth, in providing the full range of mechanical, electrical, building fabric and facilities management services for customers across the two counties.
Damian Salmon, South West regional director, said the opportunities available in the region had seen the firm accelerate its plans to open the Exeter office, bringing the launch forward by more than two years. He said: “Despite the recession which has seen many contractors go to the wall and even some of the large providers struggling over the last 12 months, EIC is bucking the trend by continuing to win new business across the South West. This success has led us to invest in this new office in Exeter.
“As Devon’s county town and key business centre, having a presence in Exeter was a logical move for us and was planned originally for 2012. However, as one of the leading building services contractors in the South West, we are in the fortunate position of continuing to build up our client base and attract new employees, giving us the impetuous to accelerate our plans. Having recently picked up a number of contracts in the area we felt it was appropriate to bring forward our expansion plan, in order to provide a local point of contact for those new clients, while also maintaining our commitments to our existing customers.”
