Testimonials

“The decision to move onto the Science Park was an easy one for us and the team there couldn’t do enough to make the transition as smooth as possible. The specialist facilities are ideal for businesses like ours as we enhance our research and development activities. It also allows us to access a multitude of support channels as we continue to improve outcomes for our customers and of course, with our other hat on, to help save lives.”

“As a new start-up venture, we wanted the business to be positioned centrally to enable our UK wide customer to access our services. Being based within the Science centre has given us access to the excellent facilities available and we are looking forward to hopefully working with other like-mind businesses at the Science park over the coming months.”
