Family-run AC company B-DACS has celebrated the launch of its new office in Panorama Business Village.
The opening ceremony was carried out by Margaret Curran, MP for Glasgow East and Shadow Secretary of State for Scotland.
Approximately 40 guests attended the launch, including B-DACS’ partners, customers and suppliers, as well as representatives from local businesses.
In her speech, Margaret Curran congratulated B-DACS on their ongoing expansion and emphasised the importance of local business to her constituency. She later described B-DACS as ‘a real East End success story’.
The move to a larger office signals B-DACS’ ambition for the future under the leadership of directors Brian and Diane Drummond. It represents an opportunity for the company to build stronger links with the local community and achieve further growth in the years ahead.
Diane said, ‘It has been an exciting two years for B-DACS as we have doubled our workforce, increased our turnover and moved into new office premises.
‘We would like to thank our staff, customers and key suppliers who have supported us through the change. It’s now time for us to embed the changes and ensure our service continues to exceed our customers’ expectations.
The office launch coincides with the build-up to the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and B-DACS have used Glasgow’s Commonwealth Initiative to help them expand. Recruiting four permanent employees through the scheme, B-DACS has utilised Glasgow City Council’s Digital Graduate Internship Programme and the Commonwealth Jobs Fund.
Representatives from Jobs & Business Glasgow and the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) attended the launch, in recognition of B-DACS’ efforts to provide employment to local young people.
