Warrington’s Grade A advanced manufacturing and engineering hub, The Base on Dallam Lane, has secured three new lettings at The Base
A total of 2,000 sq ft of space has been let to three businesses, maintaining its reputation as a home for high growth SMEs.
Ixis, a digital transformation specialist; Resulting IT, a tech-driven sales firm; and Avanite, a software company, have leased three offices.
Between them the new tenants bring 24 new jobs to the building.
“Warrington ranks top ten in the UK for high growth SMEs,” stated Steve Park, Managing Director of Warrington & Co.
“These latest lettings at The Base add to a growing list of customers that are creating the new Warrington economy. There’s a real buzz about the building and we’ve seen a great start to 2017 with enquiries.”
The Base opened last year and was project managed by Warrington & Co. on behalf of Warrington Borough Council who own the property.
Cllr Terry O’Neill, Warrington Borough Council Leader, stated, “We’re booming and future-proofing our economy with Warrington Means Business.”
“Supporting our businesses is a key element of WMB, particularly assisting and providing business space for new start-ups to assist them to grow which is why we invested in creating The Base.
It’s very encouraging that these dynamic, new, high-tech businesses have chosen to locate at The Base.”
Commenting on the reasons behind the move, Francesco Giarletta of Avanite said: “We chose The Base as it gave us the flexibility to expand and it is a central location with great travel links.
We foster community with current co-occupants, exchanging ideas and knowledge within the building.
Benefitting from on-site support at The Base, we grow efficiently and anticipate joining an innovative business hub.
Stuart Browne of Resulting IT says the move has helped them find space of ‘the right calibre’ as the firm continues to grow: “We’re a fast-growing company and needed working space of the right calibre in a central location.
The Base really fits the bill – it’s modern and has excellent facilities. Plus, it’s great to be located in a founding building in an exciting new business location for the town.”
Mike Carter of Ixis mentioned, “At The Base, we acquired not only an office but also valuable partners in Resulting IT and Avanite, enhancing our customer base.”
We are excited to explore further partnerships as more high growth businesses move in.”
Jayne Furnival, Group Property Director at building managers Langtree, added, “Moreover, businesses want to cluster around like-minded companies. Therefore, we recently launched our BaseConnect networking platform to facilitate this.”
Gaining momentum with 70+ sign-ups, this trend bodes well for our lettings program’s success.”
Warrington ranks sixth for start-ups nationwide, highest in the northwest, and top ten for high-growth SMEs.
Opened in January 2016, The Base aids the town’s capitalisation on this strength, offering 50,000 sq ft of flexible Grade ‘A’ space.
