Ventura to build pounds 15m centre on pit site
Thursday 09 April 1998
The site is due to be finished by November and temporary premises at nearby Silkstone House are being used while building work is carried out. The Dearne Valley area of South Yorkshire, where the new site is to be built, suffered dramatically from pit closures in the 1980s and 1990s, and has an unemployment rate of 9.9 per cent per cent - nearly double the national average. Ventura said it hoped to fill most of the 1,750 vacancies with local people.
The company, which has recorded a 42 per cent growth per year for the last seven years, manages millions of customer accounts on behalf of clients such as Cellnet, BT, Co-Operative Bank and Kingfisher. Steve Fairbank, Ventura chief executive, said: "The new site is a major commitment to the expansion of Ventura's successful business. The new jobs created in the Dearne Valley will be a massive boost to the local economy."
