Three companies and a further education college are the latest organisations to complete accession to full membership of the Elite Ayrshire Business Circle.

Norman Geddes (pictured above) is senior partner at Frazer Coogans Commercial Solicitors and Executive Chairman of the Elite Ayrshire Business Circle. He commented: “We are delighted that four more organisations from diverse parts of Ayrshire have joined with us to enjoy and share the benefits of membership of the Elite Ayrshire Business Circle.
“We are dedicated to the task of publicising and promoting our members both within the Ayrshire community and beyond, and constantly researching new opportunities to gain maximum exposure and visibility for their products and services in the marketplace at home and abroad.
“It is likely that the next 12 months will present Ayrshire businesses with many challenges, but also great opportunities, as hopefully economic conditions generally start to improve.
“It is vital in such times as these that organisations continue to market themselves as aggressively as possible, and membership of the Elite Ayrshire Business Circle allows local businesses to do that in the most economical and cost-effective manner.
“We look forward to welcoming further new members into our fold in the coming months, and any interested company will be most welcome to attend one of our meetings as our guest in order to find out what we are all about.”
