Creative company moves from Brighton to Ashford after being impressed by the connectivity

Commercial Quarter Ashford, where Recursive Media are likely to move

Recursive Media have moved from Brighton to Kent after being attracted by the county’s connectivity to London and Europe.

The Company, which employs five people, creates audio and visual experiences at locations like Harrods, Dubai Mall and the Olympic Park.

The firm has moved from the South coast to Ashford’s Park Mall shopping centre on a 12-month contract thanks to its convenience for clients in the capital and the continent.

Chief executive David Yates said: “The unit in Park Mall is a good creative space for our business.

“In Brighton, in addition to the rents being high we were mixed in with lots of businesses that weren’t the same as ours and ultimately we were also compromised by the location.

“We employ a freelance workforce from all over the UK, so a destination only 38 minutes from St Pancras is very attractive indeed.

 “However, what sealed the deal for us was the unwavering enthusiasm and warm welcome of Ashford Borough Council and its ambition to develop a dynamic new business hub with a meaningful digi-tech and creative industry presence in the Commercial Quarter next to Ashford International.

“This is well thought through, and we want to be part of that from the very beginning.”

Ashford council bought Park Mall in June last year as part of its continuing efforts to revitalise the town centre.

It bought International House in 2014 as part of its plans to build a Commercial Quarter creating several hundred jobs, 590,000sq ft of office space and 150 homes.

It is expected Recursive Media will move to this development when it is complete.

Town centre chief Cllr Graham Galpin said: “To attract a creative business of the calibre of Recursive Media is a coup for the borough.

“Their decision to relocate here underlines that Ashford is the number one business location in Kent and their decision to move into Park Mall indicates the versatility of that space and backs our decision to purchase it.”
