Moving back to Meigh Mansbridge & Co Accountants was definitely a calculated decision for Stuart

By | News | No Comments

Stuart Thomas joined Meigh Mansbridge & Co (MMC) Accountants as a Junior Accountant in 2003 at the age of just 17 after leaving Hanley Castle High School. He remained with MMC for 8 years, working his way up to the position of Semi-Senior Accountant. In 2011 he decided to leave MMC to gain experience working for larger companies. He spent the next 6 years working for Hazlewoods, a large Accountants in Cheltenham, and Velcourt Ltd, based in Ledbury.  

Stuart always had the desire to return to MMC once he had gained experience, and in July 2017, the opportunity arose for him to move back, becoming Partner with Mike Cushing in March of this year. An impressive transition from ‘apprentice’ to ‘owner’ in just under 15 years!

Mike joined MMC in 1992, joining original Partners, Roger Meigh and Kevin Mansbridge after having trained in Hereford, specializing in the Farming Industry. The firm have been established in Malvern for over 40 years. Roger and Kevin opened their first office at Link Top, along the Worcester Road. 

They moved to Link Business Centre 15 years ago. Their office there has provided them with the extra space they required to enable them to increase staff levels and grow the business. Along with professional meeting rooms and ample space for parking and storage, it has proved to be the ideal conveniently situated location for both staff and especially clients.

Nationally renowned Company give Upton Business Centre the ‘thumbs up’!

GT logo1When GreenThumb Lawn Treatment Service, the largest and most recommended lawn care company, with over 200 branches nationwide decided that they needed more space for storing their products and machines in the Three Counties area, Unit 1C at Upton Business Centre proved to be the ideal solution. 

Its proximity to the M5 and M50 will provide easy access to their Head Office in North Wales and the strategic, secure location of the Centre will be the perfect additional base to provide their Lawn Operatives with the necessary equipment and support to carry out in excess of 1 million lawn treatments every year.

GreenThumb was started by Stephen Waring in North Wales 32 years ago. His first office was in the back of his Ford Sierra, but has since seen his business blossom, with the Company having an annual turnover of over £15m. 

Stephen started his first business venture when still at school in north Wales, selling loft insulation. And he was still only 19 when he invested £64 in 1,000 leaflets, put a bucket of fertiliser in the back of his Sierra and knocked on doors, offering to feed and weed lawns. He ended up with 70 customers on one housing estate alone. Stephen, determined to be a success, realised that with an estimated 20 million UK lawns, there was a huge untapped market. He researched the idea and set up GreenThumb UK, tailoring the concept to meet the needs of the British market and climate.

The company, now based in Denbighshire, North Wales, grew steadily, with Stephen taking on staff to help him deliver the service across the whole country.

In 1994, Stephen took the next big step in his business career. He decided that to spread across the whole of the UK more quickly, he would expand through franchising.

GreenThumb now perform millions of treatments every year nationwide – from Northern Scotland to the Isle of Wight. They continue to pioneer the very best there is in every aspect of lawn treatments, including lawn fertilisers.

There are now approximately 800 GreenThumb vans travelling around the country, regularly seen in cities, towns and villages, the nearest one being in Great Malvern.

New Tenants, Unique Polymer Systems Ltd have certainly got it covered!

Until recently, Unique Polymer Systems Ltd were based in Ledbury, but when Unit 19 at Link Business Centre became available, Robin Pettigrew (CEO) and his team, Tom Pettigrew (Global Sales & Distribution Director) and Lucy Lewis (Office Management) decided to re-locate there, to take advantage of the secure location, the flexible space that the unit provides, and the ideal accessibility and parking, all of which will assist in the growth of the business.

“We are very pleased to have moved to Link Business Centre. It has a vibrant atmosphere, and the flexibility of the space will allow us to adapt the Unit to suit our requirements – in fact, we are commencing work on creating new office space very soon. We are looking forward to seeing our business flourish here for many years to come, with the encouragement and support given by the owners, Martin and Mark Wilesmith”. Tom Pettigrew, Director
