BEDS giant Bensons for Beds has given a vote of confidence to Hyndburn with the opening of a new head office.

Bosses from the group, which also includes Harveys, say they need extra space for customer services after taking on 20 more staff at their Huncoat HQ.

Fresh space has been commissioned at The Globe Centre, in Accrington, to accommodate the now 80-strong team.

Alan Williams, Managing Director at Bensons for Beds says: “Our expansion to a new, brighter office space is part of our commitment to making and creating a great place to work for all of our colleagues."

Work will now take place to reconfigure and redecorate their Huncoat, site, in Bolton Avenue, as part of ongoing expansion plans for the company.
