WORLDWIDE boat transportation firm, PSP, has expanded its headquarters in anticipation of further growth in 2012.
The firm, title sponsor of the PSP Southampton Boat Show, says it expects significant growth throughout the year, both financially and in terms of employee numbers. Managing Director, Frank Dixie, said this has led to a necessity to expand its central office between Portsmouth and Southampton.
Currently 30 staff are based at PSP’s office in Segensworth, which was bought outright in 2010 as a bold move that reasserted PSP’s stability and strong position within the market. With plans to increase the workforce by 15 per cent, PSP called in interior space solutions firm, Spaceway, to advise on the best way to increase its office space.
After thorough consultation, Spaceway designed and installed a mezzanine floor, which meant previously unused roof space was turned into a profitable work environment. The project took just three weeks and saved PSP valuable time and money compared to its original plan to build an extension.
Dominic O’Brien, Sales Director at Spaceway, said:
“It is very rewarding to see the difference that our work has made to the bottom line of PSP’s business. Not only has it allowed for future expansion but it has also turned what was once ‘dead space’ into an area that will be used to carry out profitable work.”
PSP’s Managing Director, Frank Dixie, said:
“As a worldwide boat transportation and freight forwarding firm we know a thing or two about logistics so we were pleased to see the construction operation carried out with meticulous precision and timing. In just a few short weeks our office space has increased by 25 per cent and we now know that not only are we prepared for expansion, but we are getting the best return on our investment in buying the freehold on the building.”
