More than 100 were expected to help Beaver Tree Services celebrate the official opening of its new Forrestdale Business Park premises at a Business Armadale showcase last night.
The move is indicative of the growth in businesses finally moving into the park after construction first started on it in 2007.
Managing director and Business Armadale president Paul Harrison said the new premises was 10 times bigger than its previous Kelmscott industrial area home and could house 90 employees with ease.
“Because we were so cramped, if we had an emergency job we’d have to move five vehicles,” he said.
“Now we have each team in a row so basically we just push the button for the roller door and we’re out.
“For emergency work, weekends and nights that is so much easier. It’s hard to imagine how we all squeezed in at Kelmscott really.”
Mr Harrison said being located in Forrestdale meant teams could reach jobs more quickly.
“We’re on Armadale Road and Tonkin Highway so we’re five to 10 minutes closer to where we want to be because we pretty much go down Tonkin and Armadale every day,” he said.
