"Our new offices are much more open and modern and we have settled in really quickly. Hurstwood have been fantastic, and really made sure the move was hassle-free. We were really impressed at how swiftly they turned things around – even redecorating the entrance hall before we moved in."

Mark Carling, Hurstwood's sales director, added: "The deal with Scancapture is great news for the town. It creates new jobs for local people, which is good news for the economy.

"Scancapture operate nationally so need somewhere productive to conduct business and these offices are ideal for their needs."
