GOVERNMENT minister John Hutton MP has given the seal of approval to Barrow Travel's state-of-the-art call centre which is currently under construction.
Barrow Travel, part of United Co-operatives, is leading the way as the first business to move on to the Andrew's Court Scheme which is being developed by Priority Sites, the commercial development company owned by The Royal Bank of Scotland and the national regeneration agency English Partnerships.
As Mr Hutton launched the St Andrew's Court Scheme he praised the part Barrow Travel had played and the boost it had given to the local economy.
The 12,000 sq ft purpose-built customer call centre will be Barrow Travel's new head office from where it will operate the Cumbria Cruise Club and UK Reservation Centre, Cumbria Business Travel and Cumbria Group Travel.
