BMG Research has moved into its new Edgbaston headquarters, inviting Jerry Blackett, chief executive of Birmingham Chamber of Commerce, to officially open the site.
The business, one of the largest independent research agencies in the UK, combines technical knowledge and skills with outstanding customer service to deliver value and insight to its clients, and took the opportunity of launching its new HQ at Beech House, Greenfield Crescent, to give guests a tour and invite them to meet the team on Monday June 1st.
Dawn Hands, managing director, said: “The business has been operating for almost 30 years to support its client base, which includes Government, financial, public health, crime and justice, education, housing and transport sectors.
“BMG research engages with hundreds of thousands of businesses and members of the public each year as it gains insight to provide the excellent service clients have come to trust. That level of research required investment into bespoke premises, and this office has been chosen to enable us to continue to deliver that.
“Benefitting from state-of-the-art technology to fulfil the team’s needs, the premises is sited in an excellent, central location and also has the potential to expand as the business does. Already, this feels like home and I would like to thank all of our supporters for making it possible, and our staff who have gone over and above to make the move seamless,” she added.
The business also unveiled a sneak preview of a piece of bespoke art that it has commissioned from Stourbridge glass artist Paul Floyd to commemorate the opening, which will be displayed in reception upon completion.
Jerry Blackett told guests that the Chamber has enjoyed a successful relationship with BMG Research and that the new premises were being launched at an exciting time for the region, as Birmingham joins forces with Coventry, Solihull and the Black Country to cement a stronger presence as Greater Birmingham.
“Birmingham enjoyed annual growth of six per cent the year before last compared to a 1.6 per cent growth for the UK. As a city, we are way on the up-curve of growth and business like BMG Research are going to secure a strong future for the region as a whole. I could not be more thrilled to have been asked to officially open the new headquarters,” he said.
