Expansion for Wisbech business

A WISBECH business has bucked the trend in the economic downturn by expanding and moving into a purpose-built unit.

Burley Fluid & Air has moved from Venture Court to the new unit in Boleness Road, upgrading in size from 1,200 square feet to 5,500 square feet.

Managing director Andy Burke said he had owned the Boleness Road site for the past four years, but felt now was the right time to expand the business, which stocks hydraulics and pneumatic parts and services.

The business employs local people and the move created one extra job. There could potentially be more positions created in the future.
