South West Business Centres to open new £1.16m Hub

27th February 2015

Categories: Latest News

A dynamic new £1.16m centre, managed by South West Business Centres, gets its grand opening on Wednesday 25 March 2015.

The recently completed Highbridge Enterprise Centre at Isleport Business Park, Somerset is the newest addition to the South West Business Centres portfolio. The centre has been set up to champion high growth enterprises and drive business investment in the South West.

Adrian Sheen, South West Business Centres Manager, said: “The Centre comprises three modern light industrial units, flexible office space and meeting rooms, and is equipped with fibre optic broadband. New and expanding businesses based at the Centre will be able to access free advice through the South West Business Centres organisation, which manages the site on behalf of the County Council.”

The Centre also hopes to attract business interest from outside the county, maximising on opportunities presented by future, high-profile developments, such as EDF Energy’s proposed Hinkley Point C power station.

Businesses Solec and Keith Cappa Photography will move into the Centre in March.

The project is jointly-funded by Somerset County Council and through the Rural Growth Network (RGN), which encourages economic growth and enterprise in rural areas.

Adrian continued, “The Centre’s construction was completed both on schedule and within budget. I am glad to say that in addition to the three tenants who are now moving into the Centre, we have received reservations for two of the offices. I am very much looking forward to the opening event on Wednesday 25 March.”

Steve Hindley, Chair of Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership said: “I am delighted to see the results of the Rural Growth Network offering great facilities for growing businesses. The easy-in and easy-out leasing options, as well as a low monthly overhead, will appeal to many businesses operating around Highbridge.

“We expect local people working within the knowledge economy to be interested in benefitting from high quality workspace, free business support and the chance to network with like-minded individuals.”

Duncan McLean, Director of Solec, added: “As a growing company, I need space to expand my business from an accessible location, just off the M5, so I am really pleased to be taking a unit at the Highbridge Enterprise Centre.”
