Business booms at Adanac

Test Valley Borough Council chiefs recently took a guided tour around the bustling Adanac Business Park in Nursling, which has seen the creation of more than 200 new jobs since 2019.

From Mars Space, which develops rocket engines, to BBC Coffee Limited, which has invested millions of pounds in plant and equipment, the park is now home to a hugely diverse and rapidly growing business community thanks to the hard work of its owners and support from TVBC.

Harry Hutchinson, director of Oceanic Estates which owns Adanac Business Park, took TVBC leader councillor, Phil North, housing and environmental health portfolio holder and local ward member, Phil Bundy, and economic development and tourism portfolio holder, David Drew, around the site last month.

They visited several businesses including Asendia, which is creating 75 jobs, as well as the state-of-the-art Parthian Climbing centre.

Harry Hutchinson, said: “TVBC have had a supportive and pragmatic approach to supporting and accommodating businesses that have taken space at Adanac Park, and this has resulted in substantial inward investment and job creation.”

Councillor David Drew, added: “We were pleased to see so many new companies moving in to what is one of the most prestigious new business parks in southern Hampshire. I firmly believe that this illustrates the real benefits that come from partnership working and evidences our unwavering commitment to supporting the local economy to not just recover from the pandemic, but to grow and flourish.”
