“The support we have received from Enterprising Barnsley has been superb from day one. In addition to the central location and easy access to the main motorway network, their support and guidance was instrumental in our decision to relocate to the area. It enabled us to build a brand new facility at the time and since then we have received tremendous support for recruitment, training, investment and retention of key personnel”.
