Guests from the fitness, sporting and business community celebrated the official opening of a new business that relocated to Chorley, creating 20 new jobs.

National fitness industry supplier ServiceSport, which employs 55 people, opened its doors at its new Chorley North Industrial Park home which included some well-known faces from the sporting world including boxer Tyson Fury and Chorley FC manager Garry Flitcroft.

The supplier of gym parts and gym equipment to the fitness industry was the first to relocate in the borough just weeks after the Choose Chorley for Business campaign was launched by the lighting of Rivington Pike.

Councillor Alistair Bradley, Leader of Chorley Council, said: “It’s great to see that they have been warmly welcomed in Chorley and it just goes to show the breadth of businesses we have in the borough.

“I’m delighted that ServiceSport chose Chorley, partly because they see it as an up and coming place to do business, and the interest shown at the opening is a sign of the supportive business community here. We wish the firm well in its new home and we will do what we can to support them as they settle into their base, which is ideally located on Junction 8 of the M61.”

They also offer independent technical support for maintaining resistance and cardiovascular equipment.

The organisation benefited from a £25,000 grant from Chorley Council, as well as business advice and support finding suitable premises through the Choose Chorley for Business campaign.
