A Huntingdonshire firm specialising in event installations, builds and bespoke event manufacturing has grown significantly over the last four years trebling its workforce, forcing it to move from its previous premises in St Ives to considerably larger premises in Huntingdon.

Barford + Co, the St Neots based firm of Chartered Surveyors and Planning Consultants, assisted events company Penny Banks in its commercial property search. 

Penny Banks, which supplies event services for the likes of the British Open golf tournaments, BBC Good Food show, Clothes Show Live, and the Jockey Club at Newmarket Races, has recently moved into a 55,878 sq ft (5,191 sq m) industrial unit at 12 Windover Road in Huntingdon.

Penny Horner is MD of Penny Banks, she said: “We’ve grown really rapidly over the last four years going from employing 12 members of staff to 38, so we just outgrew our previous unit in St Ives. We believe our rapid growth is down to our unique ability to work with a client on every stage of the event planning and production process, right through from initial concepts through to staging and even bespoke furniture building.

“Our larger premises on Windover Road have allowed us to create a showroom so clients can see the installations as they will appear at their event, and we’ve also built an industrial spray booth so we can spray furniture to match exactly a client’s brand colours. We offer clients a fully integrated service which is unique in this industry and our new showroom shows this off to full effect.

“Windover Road is perfect for us as it’s still large enough to allow us to grow and being in Huntingdon is ideal as we have lots of clients in London, so it’s easy to get to either on the train or by road.”

Howard Westgate is Associate Director at Barford + Co, he said: “The industrial market in Huntingdon is doing very well at the moment with a quick turnover of properties. 12 Windover Road hadn’t been on the market long before it was let to Penny Banks and it suits their needs very well.

“There is lots of flexibility there which is allowing Penny Banks to create a space that suits their business and that will grow with them as well. We work closely with clients to understand their needs and help them find a property that will suit them now and in the future.”
