‘Invest In Nottingham’ supports BatFast with expansion

BatFast, a sports technology business promoting participation in global sport, founded and based in the East Midlands, are relocating to a bigger site in Nottingham due to significant growth over the last 3 years.

With an expanding team and a surge in demand for their bowling and pitching simulators,  the business has moved to a larger site at Colwick Quays Business Park, in Nottingham, as part of their global expansion plans. The move has been supported by James Mann and the team from Invest in Nottingham.

BatFast’s new Colwick offices will primarily enable increased development, testing, and assembly of their technologies which are being supplied to clients worldwide. The space will also be home to the BatFast batting lane, which is used for customers to improve their batting skills and can be utilised for community events with organisations such as Nottingham CCC and the local universities.

James Mann commented, “We’re delighted to be able to support local firms with their international growth plans, especially when they’re creating exciting and skilled job opportunities for people who reside in and around Nottingham.”

The East Midlands will always have a deep rooted synergy with BatFast, as the business was founded in Loughborough and BatFast Co-founder, Runish Gudhka, studied at the University of Nottingham.  BatFast COO, Navdeep Sethi commented,  “Nottingham is central to BatFast’s growth as the Sports and Technology infrastructure are excellent.  With world-famous sports teams, international sporting venues, excellent infrastructure links and two world-class universities, Nottingham was the natural location from which to grow our business. “

Nigel Rhodes, former-Nottingham Panthers and Great Britain international, and owner of Colwick Quays Business Park highlighted. “I love working with the BatFast team! It was such a smooth transaction and I am excited to be part of their growth and future.”

BatFast’s mission is to “Drive increased participation and access to sport globally, through the use of technology”. They recently celebrated a milestone of 5,000,000 balls being played across their technologies worldwide.
