Blue Planet Blueprint for Efficiencies

Posted on

Blue Planet Aquarium has appointed Midshire, and joins a growing list of tourism, leisure and culture venues working with the business systems specialist.

The Stockport-based national printer, copier, scanner, IT and business telephony supply and service business is already responsible for keeping the administrative wheels of the region’s museums and galleries turning, amongst them the Liverpool World Museum, Maritime Museum, National Conservation Centre and the Lady Lever Art Gallery in Port Sunlight.

The Ellesmere Port aquarium, famous for its collection of 10ft Sand Tiger sharks and a 3.8 million litre Caribbean Reef display featuring a 70 metre Aquatunnel, chose Midshire after it demonstrated it could significantly upgrade failing equipment at no additional cost.

Blue Planet Aquarium is one of the North West’s most successful attractions featuring 50 exhibits across a wide range of animals

The park director Andy Hygate said Midshire: “Saved money on our previous agreement and delivered a modern solution with improved functions which better fits our needs.”

He added that a clear approach to outlining costs helped secure the contract.

Midshire’s Anthony Donelan, who is responsible for the Blue Planet contract, said: “We have machines now in more than a dozen locations for some of the North West’s most popular attractions and were delighted to add Blue Planet as a client.”
