Air Business has recently moved into its new home, The Beacon, a landmark head office facility in the heart of Hatfield. The move comes after an extensive design and fit-out process supported by Herts Chamber of Commerce member, the SEC Group.
Air Business is a market-leader in global mail fulfilment, distribution and subscription management. Previously based across a number of facilities in Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire and Essex, they took the strategic decision to bring everything under one roof aimed at creating greater efficiencies, becoming more environmentally friendly and to improve their seamless customer experience.
The new landmark head office and distribution facility on Mosquito Way in Hatfield was specifically built for Air Business and is named The Beacon. This is in honour of the Hatfield Beacon which once stood on the site, guiding trainee fighter pilots back to the old airfield during World War II.
“We were completely new to this type of project and we chose the SEC Group as our design and fit-out partner as they took the time explain each stage of the project and guide us through the many different options” comments Lenka Booker, Customer Experience Director at Air Business.
“The SEC Group worked with us to ensure all our requirements were met, as we had a very strict budget given the scale of the project”.
The SEC Group has provided Air Business with a dynamic, more efficient and pleasurable workspace. This includes an open plan office, large break-out area, various co-working and meeting spaces, alongside some quiet areas for differing work styles, in addition to extensive production facilities.
“I really enjoy working at the new office. In comparison to our old environment where departments were separated, we’ve come into an open plan space which brings different departments together which has helped to improve communication” comments Eugenia Young, Senior Commercial Manager at Air Business.
As well as being a new, key landmark on Hatfield Business Park, this is also one of the SEC Group’s landmark projects, displaying all of the facets they can offer their clients across their three businesses.
Lenka Booker comments further that “The Beacon is an amazing workspace and it is a head office that everyone is very proud of. We have had great feedback from our employees and customers”.
