Council officials and Skipton MP Julian Smith have visited a local firm, which is transforming its business through super-fast fibre broadband.

The arrival of the high-speed technology has helped ensure the long term future of Principle Healthcare, one of the Craven’s largest employers which is based on Airedale Business Centre, Skipton.

The company, which produces vitamin and mineral supplements, has an international arm with a manufacturing plant in Slovakia and was one of the first businesses in the area to sign up to fibre broadband when it was enabled by Superfast North Yorkshire in July.

Mike Davies, group chief executive officer, said: “Access to high speed broadband is vital for us. Before the arrival of fibre, relocation was something we would have had to seriously consider in the medium to long term future.

“Now we can continue to plan for the future at Airedale Business Centre, confident that this technology can help us expand the company in line with our aspirations.”
