Booth Welsh, part of the Clough group of companies headquartered in the West of Scotland, identified the Cheshire-based campus as the best location to allow them to achieve their UK and international growth plans.
Established in 1989, Booth Welsh is a specialist integrated engineering services company and offers the full spectrum of in-house process, electrical, control & instrumentation services, employing more than 250.
Booth Welsh will initially create employment opportunities for up to 10 people at Sci-Tech Daresbury’s Innovation Centre, where they will be taking 500 sq ft of space alongside as many as 100 other companies.
Martin Welsh, managing director of Booth Welsh, said: “As Clough’s Centre of Excellence for Electrical, Control & Instrumentation and Europe & Middle East (EME) regional business, the opening of this office will allow us to accelerate our strategic growth plans both here in the UK and overseas”.
“Crucially it gives us greater proximity to our clients and partners in the North West of England and will act as a critical springboard to strengthen these relationships and attract prospective clients. We conduct a lot of business in industry areas located within the North West of England so this has been a key consideration to taking the step to open a regional office here and realising our ambition for the company going forward.”
“We also chose Sci-Tech Daresbury because technology and innovation are inextricably linked to our growth. Not only will we have access to ultra-modern facilities within a well-established engineering community, but also the campus itself enjoys access to national and international transport links and a large talent pool and as our business grows we anticipate creating more high value new jobs.”
“Sci-Tech Daresbury already has a reputation as one of the UK’s leading centres for science and technology businesses and the vision shown by its board is highly attractive to us and we are delighted to be joining a unique community of like-minded businesses with opportunities for further innovation and collaboration.”
