Tewkesbury’s Basepoint Business Centre is located in Tewkesbury Business Park, just a five-minute drive from Junction 9 of the M5.
It was this prime location and access to the town’s excellent motorway and main road links that prompted the company to choose Tewkesbury as a base for its innovative blend of flexible serviced and managed offices, virtual offices and serviced meeting rooms a decade ago.
Not only does Basepoint provide sought-after working space free of long-term leases, it also aims to build small to medium size business communities that add value to the areas they are in. In Tewkesbury, this philosophy has thrived and the centre is now home to a range of businesses; a wide variety of size and industry types.
At Basepoint Tewkesbury tenants include accountants, software developers, fraud investigators, defence equipment suppliers, a fitness and dance studio, caterers, label manufacturers, photographers, security suppliers, a watch strap distribution company and training providers.
Centre Manager, Claire Vagges, says: “There is a very active business community here in at Tewkesbury which benefits from the opportunities to do business with one another within Basepoint. We hold networking hubs every month and now have a thriving networking community in the local area.
In addition, some of our client facing businesses on site, such as our café and fitness studio, have been successful in increasing footfall to our site which means more people know we are here and what we do.”
Basepoint Business Centre was established 21 years ago and is wholly owned by a charity, The ACT Foundation. ACT’s mission is to ‘enhance the quality of life for people in need’. Any profit from the Basepoint operation is used by the charity to further its charitable objectives within the communities that it serves.
In addition, all Basepoint Business Centres provide financial support to a local charity as part of their own objective to help develop sustainable communities.
Today there are 31 Basepoint Business Centres across the south of the UK, Midlands, East Anglia and Wales.
