New Haverhill firm that rose from the ashes of another has had a great first year
An IT support and supplies company that was formed following the demise of a long-established Haverhill business is on the up after an impressive first year.
Kerbury Business Centre Ltd, which since January has been based in part of the DB Sheetmetals building in Piperell Way, Haverhill, was set up last year in the wake of the closure of Kerbury Ltd, which for 45 years had been a fixture in the town centre.
In July 2017 Kerbury Ltd went into receivership and was pulled from insolvency by David Tulip, Mark Goulding, Lee Goulding and Paul Moore, who then formed Kerbury Business Centre Ltd.
Having just passed their first 12 months in business, the company was put on a shortlist of five companies for three different awards at the Terra VIP Dinner and Awards - the Mobile, Server and Reseller categories - held on HMS Belfast in London on September 21.
Although they didn’t win any of the awards, their nominations, and the successful first 12 months has delighted Mr Tulip.
He said: “I’m immensely proud, having just completed 12 months trading, to be in that position. On the evening there were 60 companies represented, of which probably 15 were nominated and we were nominated for three awards, so it was a fantastic achievement.
“We’ve just finished our first 12 months and turned over the best part of half-a-million pounds and have added three new staff, all from Haverhill.
“We came in and steadied the ship and expanded the business and hopefully we can go from there.”
