"From small beginnings in the 1970s, our business - based in Chatteris, Cambridgeshire - has grown into one of the leading root vegetable companies in the UK. Situated within close proximity to some of the best growing land in the country, good access to labour and being nearby the major road networks have all helped our business develop into what it is today."
Toby Bartlett, Alan Bartlett & Sons Limited
“History tells us that Fenland has been a booming trade area since the draining of the Fens in the 17th century, and the Fenland region’s hunger for doing business certainly lives on.
"Moore Thompson have been advising budding start-ups and growing companies in and around Fenland for many years and we believe that businesses looking to make new connections, expand into the East of England or explore agricultural opportunities would find the area a fantastic base."
Chris Wright, Moore Thompson Chartered Accountants
"Whiting & Partners have been located in Wisbech for nearly 90 years and during that time we have built up a loyal client base of local businesses. As our target market is focused on owner-managed independent businesses, it is a particular benefit that Wisbech and its surrounding area has a strong base of such enterprises.
"The wide variety of trades, professions and businesses that we encounter ensures that our work is always interesting."
Richard Meadows, Whiting & Partners
"Wisbech is ideally situated for our agricultural clients and gives us access to the independent agricultural engineering and similar businesses which tend to be located on the town’s industrial estates. Having the College of West Anglia in the town is also very helpful as it means there is good training for the workforce.
"Road access has improved to the main train stations of Peterborough and King’s Lynn to make it easier for business partners to get to Wisbech.
"Development of both industrial estates and housing estates mean it is easier for businesses and their workers to relocate."
Andrew Cave, Wheelers Chartered Accountants & Tax Consultants
