Dimension8Exhibition and conference contractor Dimension 8 has expanded its operations in Newport, Wales, and made two senior appointments following a record year and the recent acquisition of furniture hire company, Design Matters.

Dimension 8 has expanded into a further 2500sqft unit at its base in Newport, Wales, where the newly expanded furniture business alone will total 5000sqft.

Alongside this comes two key appointments within the company to support this and the other aspects of the exhibition, events and conference business.

Andy Havelot has been appointed as furniture operations manager expanding his role to cover the substantially increased furniture hire business – he will report to Liz Ridout who has been appointed to the post of furniture commercial manager as of May 3, 2013.

Dimension 8 managing director, Simon Ridout said: “I am delighted to announce the two appointments and the expansion into our new furniture facilities. Last year was a record year for Dimension 8 and we have plans to continue to build the business in the UK and overseas. The appointment of Andy is recognition of his experience, knowledge and passion for the event furniture side of our business. He will be responsible for managing all aspects of our furniture operations including build up and breakdown on site, logistics and liaising with operations managers/directors. The appointment of Liz strengthens our management team and carries responsibility for new business, communications with organisers and exhibitors as well as the financial management of the furniture business.

“The investments, expansion and appointments we have made will reinforce the position of Dimension 8 as a highly capable full service event and exhibition contractor owned, managed and based in the UK,” concluded Ridout.
