In June 2020 Level Five Supplies outgrew its original home and moved into the salubrious surroundings of the newly opened Frome Business Park.
Based in the heart of the Frome industrial and commercial district in the south-west of the town, Frome Business Park is located on Marston Trading Estate, a short walk from the town centre and train station.
The Frome Business Park building itself was an engineering business for many years – built in the 1960s, the Tool and Guage building was a brave piece of mid-Twentieth-century architecture with much of its heritage and features retained in its current, redeveloped form. Its unusual name inspired the naming of the new onsite cafe; The Tool and Gauge Kitchen.
FROME BUSINESS PARK is a unique hub space designed to support businesses of all sizes in Frome and the surrounding areas, with high-quality modern working environments and space to grow. Based on the resimerical design concept, great care is taken to ensure a warm and friendly atmosphere.
Within the building, all key services for business needs are catered for, as well as many that are normally reserved for silicon valley start-ups.
With most working environments either lacking in quality or being all about the look but with no substance, the team behind Frome Business Park have taken a different approach, set to become a blueprint for communities across the world.
- Fully equipped cafe
- On-site parking with electric car charging points

Frome (pronouced Froom)
Frome is a town in Somerset, nestled at the eastern end of the Mendip Hills. The town centres on the River Frome and is just 13 miles south of the historic city of Bath.
Frome, with a current population of circa 26,000 was one of the largest towns in Somerset until the Industrial Revolution and was larger than Bath from AD 950 until 1650. The town first grew due to the wool and cloth industry, later diversifying into metal-working and printing, although these have declined in recent times. The town was enlarged during the 20th century but retains a large number of listed buildings, and most of the centre falls within a conservation area.
With strong road and rail transport links the town acts as an economic centre for the surrounding area, also providing a centre for cultural and sporting activities, including the annual Frome Festival and Frome Museum. Several notable individuals were born in, or have lived in, the town, including 2009 Formula 1 champion Jenson Button, musician Alfred ‘Pee Wee’ Ellis, pioneering documentary photographer Alice Seeley Haris, and Sir Benjamin Baker, builder of the Forth Bridge.
