The recruitment specialist, which is based on the North West Industrial Estate in Peterlee, has confirmed sponsorship of PBP News for a further 12 months.

The company has been the newsletter’s exclusive sponsor since 2013.

Rob Dunbar, Managing Director at GEM, said: “We are fully committed to supporting the growth of the Peterlee Business Park community and helping to showcase everything the area has to offer.

“PBP News is a real celebration of the great things our companies are undertaking, from the creation of jobs for local people and apprenticeships for talented young people, to the expansion of their premises and investment in staff development.”

The bi-monthly PBP News features news from across the business parks and industrial estates, and has also featured company updates as the group has expanded.

Joanne Urquhart-Arnold from Business Durham, who sits on the Peterlee Business Park steering group, said: “Sponsorship like this enables the steering group to continue to invest in the area and is vital to our future growth.”
