Basepoint Ipswich to be officially opened by the Mayor on 24 Sep


Nine months after it first opened its doors to the local business community, Basepoint Business Centre in Ipswich is to be officially opened by the Mayor and west-end musical star Ruthie Henshall (Marguerite, Cats, Miss Saigon and more) in a ceremony at the centre on Thursday 24 September at 1.00 pm. Local MP Chris Mole will also be attending.

Following the success of Basepoint?fs offer of six months rent-free space to start-up business, the centre will also be hosting a mini-expo of some of the work of these new companies. Basepoint Ipswich is now a business hub for 42 companies and home to such dynamic products as the Stylaphone (yes, the thing that Rolf Harris used to play and Little Boots played at Glastonbury). The event promises to show what a dynamic business community is growing on the outskirts of Ipswich at Ransomes Europark. Basepoint specialises in the development and operation of managed business, innovation and enterprise centres. These centres provide comprehensive accommodation and support infrastructure packages to new and early?]stage companies within a supportive and secure environment. The company operates both wholly and part?]owned centres as well as managing facilities on behalf of public sector bodies. Group operations currently extend across Southern England and the Midlands, with additional opportunities under assessment across the UK. Members of the press are invited to attend the opening ceremony. Refreshments will be served. The centre address is 70-72 The Havens, Ransomes Europark, IP3 9BF.
