News: Rotherham’s Mayor visits Fusion @ Magna


The Mayor of Rotherham, Cllr Shaun Wright, has seen firsthand the support available for new small businesses across the borough during a recent visit to the Fusion @ Magna business centre at Templeborough.

The Mayor and Mayoress met centre staff and toured a number of the new start and growing enterprises that are based in the offices and workshops of the Fusion development.

They visited; Eurocoms Group Ltd, who design and install network infrastructures, telecommunications and security systems; IDL Engineering Services, specialist designers, suppliers and installers of commercial catering equipment; Moran Electrical Solutions, electrical contractors to commercial and public sector clients; commercial video producers, Red Monkey Films and; The Ultimate Balloon company who create balloon decorations and room dressings for events.

Fusion is one of four business centres operated by Rotherham Investment & Development Office (RiDO), the regeneration arm of Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council. The centres provide a secure and supportive environment in which new-start businesses can successfully develop their business.

Companies enjoy easy in / easy out terms without being tied into long lease arrangements and modern, professional premises that help enhance the image of their business, but without the high costs such amenities usually command.

RiDO has a 20-year pedigree of running business centres and helping new and young businesses to survive and prosper. Earlier this year RiDO were presented with the Incubation Champion Award for 2011 by UK Business Incubation (UKBI); the leading professional body on the development and support of business incubation environments. This was the second time that Rotherham has won the award in recent years, having previously held the title in 2005.

The Rawmarsh councillor took the role of Mayor at the annual meeting of Rotherham Borough Council in May. He has pledged to promote economic regeneration during his time in office.
