| Mayor Muir with SendmyBag.com staff |
at Town Hall, Bangor
I opened the Town Hall and the Mayor’s Parlour recently for local company SendMyBag.com to thank founder Adam Ewart and staff for the contribution made by the successful small business which recently announced plans to create twelve new jobs and to open an office within the USA in 2014.
SendmyBag.com allows people to avoid excessive airline baggage charges by using their door to door luggage shipping service.
I am delighted to see sendmybag.com go from strength to strength and wish them every success over the year ahead as they seek to expand.
With Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs) accounting for almost 95% of businesses in Northern Ireland I was grateful for the opportunity to recognise the invaluable role played by SMEs such as SendMyBag.com
Sendmybag.com have shown an amazing level of innovation and determination to realise opportunities arising from the high charges now levied by budget airlines when you need to travel with more than hand luggage.
With Bangor based customer service staff providing 7 days a week customer support to more than 70 countries worldwide, sendmybag.com are a local success story that I was proud to recognise.
Founder and CEO of sendmybag.com Adam Ewart remarked “It was a pleasure to be invited to the town hall, from renting the first SendMyBag office within North Down Development Organisation to recruiting staff, Bangor has proven a great place to start and grow a business."
