A new website celebrating and promoting Bath’s dynamic, successful, world class companies and their talented employees has been launched today.
bathunlimited.org details and promotes the achievements of some of the area’s biggest and most successful companies. It forms part of the ‘Bath Unlimited’ campaign designed to support ‘Invest in Bath’ in attracting new inward investment by increasing awareness of the area’s flourishing businesses and promoting the wealth of talent and expertise in the local workforce.
The concept of ‘Bath Unlimited’ arose from conversations at the Economic Recovery and Renewal Partnership. The campaign, which launched today (Thursday 1 October), is a collaboration between Bath & North East Somerset Council, law firm Royds Withy King, brand and design agency Mytton Williams and the University of Bath.
Councillor Dine Romero, Leader of the council said: “Bath and North East Somerset is a fantastic location for any business, with international communication links, leading research centres at our two universities and huge potential for growth with exciting developments such as Bath Quays and the Somer Valley Enterprise Zone. No wonder then that we are home to a growing number of outstanding companies from a diverse range of sectors who are global leaders in their field.
“As we work to recover from the impacts of Covid-19 it’s important that we champion these exceptional firms, their products and services and the expertise and skills they offer the global marketplace.”
Initially Bath Unlimited will concentrate on promoting the potential and ambition of a selection of companies across five sectors:
- Built-Environment – Grant Associates, Buro Happold, Format Engineers and FCB
- Tech & Innovation – Rocketmakers, University of Bath, Zynstra and Rotork
- Consumer Dynamic – Inspecs, LoveHoney, Future, Truespeed and Pure Planet
- Defence & Engineering – BMT and Horstmann
- Financial Services – L&C Mortgages and Novia
Professor Ian White, Vice Chancellor and President of the University of Bath, said: “The University of Bath is delighted to be key part of this important initiative for the future of our city and region.
“It is wonderful to see leading organisations in the city of Bath coming together to showcase what makes our home city so special, and help do what we can to support investment in the city and its people.
“For example, we’re working closely with partners to create a business innovation hub in the city centre, combining top quality creative and digital skills training alongside our world-leading SETSquared business incubator. Another example would be our motion capture studio CAMERA, which supports the digital and creative sectors in the region through collaborations and research to keep Bath at the forefront of the industry.
“We wish Bath Unlimited great success and we will play whatever role we can to make that happen.”
In the coming months ‘Bath Unlimited’ aims to create local networking, career development and recruitment opportunities with featured companies.
