Sports management and promotion company Cube International has launched its 45,000 square foot facility in Worcester.
The facility was jointly opened by the Mayor of Worcester, Cllr Stephen Hodgson, Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games mascot Perry the Bull, and Cube International CEO Ed Boardman.
The new facility will bring together several business sectors.
Boardman said, “The opening of our new headquarters in Worcester is an important development in the growth of Cube International’s business and an important milestone in realizing our ambitious growth plans. Our new facility will also allow us to improve our efficiency and sustainability within the sports industry and allow us to integrate our group more effectively. This is a big step forward as we grow our national and international footprint to better serve our customers and partners.
