X-on and the Framlingham Business Association were both celebrating after the cloud telecoms and mobile telephony provider signed up to make it 100 not out, just three years after the Association’s rebirth.

The Framlingham-based cloud telecoms and mobile telephony provider became the 100th business to sign up to the Framlingham Business Association (FBA) as it continues to strengthen its links to the local community.

The FBA aims to bring like-minded owners of local businesses together to share drive and determination, forge valuable partnerships and make a real difference to the community and its future.

With its headquarters in Framlingham and success built firmly on Suffolk roots, X-on now boasts clients around the world, but Managing Director Paul Bensley was pleased that the company will now be able to play a more direct role in the future of the town.

“We recognise that our presence in Framlingham, both as an employer of local residents and as a tenant of the Technology Centre, has a knock-on effect to both the local economy and the environment.”

“By joining the Framlingham Business Association, we will now be able to build and strengthen our relationships with other businesses in and around the town, whilst exchanging support and expertise with the other members, for the benefit of the town as a whole.”

Reaching the historic landmark of 100 members is a significant achievement for the FBA, which works closely with the other towns in the Heritage Coast Market Towns Initiative. Chairperson Jenny Stockman was understandably both thrilled and immensely proud to reach the landmark, which shows the ongoing strength of the Association.

“100 members is a significant milestone for the Association and we are proud that a global organisation, such as X-on, recognises the importance of engaging with the local market and the important role that the Business Association can play in that.”

“Through the Association we are able to connect and signpost county wide to support, funding and potential customers, and through our connections we are even able to lobby at government level to make sure our member businesses voices are heard.”

“We look forward to having X-on in our midst as we continue to strengthen the local economy and make this a great place to work and live.”
