A state-of-the-art business centre has been officially launched in robotic style.

Titan, a 9ft robot, was on hand to ensure the launch of the King’s Lynn Innovation Centre (KLIC) had a futuristic feel.

The distinctive looking £5m centre on Nar Ouse Way, on the South Lynn approach, has been ten years in the making but is now up and running.

Operated by enterprise agency Nwes, the centre provides accommodation, support and advice for new and existing businesses in the area.

“KLIC will provide existing businesses, and newcomers to the region, access to resources, support and professional space to help them flourish even further. The building will act as a hub within the Nar Ouse Business Park Enterprise Zone,” said West Norfolk Council cabinet member Alistair Beales.

Among the first companies  to move in has been Anglia IT Solutions which has relocated its Lynn office from King Street to the KLIC.

“It is the perfect fit to have offices in this state-of-the-art new facility for the region,” said Terry Windsor, a director at the company.

The open day on Monday also included the chance to learn about the Queen’s Award for Enterprise; how to find funding and the story of KLIC.

The centre has been jointly funded by West Norfolk Council, Nwes and the New Anglia Local Enterprise Agency.
