Industry challenges debated

A TELECOMS provider in Clevedon was visited by the area’s MP to discuss the challenges facing young, ambitious businesses.

Pure Comms staff welcomed Dr Liam Fox to their offices at the Radius Centre in Clevedon Hall.

Following a tour, Dr Fox sat down with managing director Rob Vivian to learn about the company’s rapid growth since it formed in 2009 as well as issues he thinks are affecting the industry.

Rob said: “We’re growing very fast but like many young businesses we do have challenges such as accessing finance and recruiting new members of staff.

“It was really rewarding to be able to talk through these issues with Dr Fox and find out what measures the Government is putting in place to ensure businesses like our can realise their potential.”
