Sports technology business expands in Nottingham

BatFast, a sports technology business founded and based in the East Midlands, is relocating to a bigger site in Nottingham following significant growth over the last 3 years.

With an expanding team and a surge in demand for its bowling and pitching simulators,  the business has moved to a larger site at Colwick Quays Business Park, in Nottingham, as part of 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 its 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 said: “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.”

BatFast COO, Navdeep Sethi, said: “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, said: “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.”
