Bartech’s MD Paul Bleck is a member of Colchester Ambassadors, a group of business leaders who believe passionately about the opportunities that Colchester presents to inward investors and relocating businesses as well as to existing organisations within the town.
With one of the fastest growing populations and economies in the UK, Colchester has a highly educated and skilled workforce and a pro-active, forward-thinking outlook.
The Colchester Ambassadors have identified four key opportunities that together make the town an unbeatable proposition:
During an interview, with the Ambassadors, Paul was asked;
What are the advantages of being a Colchester-based business?
“Companies like Paxman Diesels and Colchester Lathes have ensured a very strong engineering heritage in Colchester, which has continued with many ex-army engineers in the area. This army history has also given an underlying strength of respect, discipline and community.
As a location, Colchester provides easy access to engines in use as standby generators in London as well as many marine applications around the East Anglian coastline.”

A few words from Paul as to what makes Colchester the perfect place for a business headquarters…
“Bartech provided us with a one-stop solution for our Waukesha units.
Our previous supplier had become unreliable so moving to Bartech was a game changer.
We are now confident that parts will arrive on time plus we have access to Bartech’s knowledge and advice…Their wealth of Waukesha experience has been extremely helpful when making decisions on parts. Communicating with Bartech is always a pleasure: they are friendly, approachable, knowledgeable, and always able to deliver on our requests.
Big thank you to: Jamie, Ricky, Robert and Gary.”
