  • “We have found NETPark to be incredibly supportive, professional and friendly - the NETPark team have been a prime factor in our expansion, helping us in any way that they can to realise our plans for Quorum Development. 
    NETPark’s location adjacent to main transport links is one of its key strengths and gives us the ability to travel to customers both in the UK and abroad.  We are pleased to invite existing or prospective customers to visit Quorum, with the exceptional standard of upkeep of the buildings and their beautiful location in parkland giving a uniformly positive impression of our company to clients. I only wish we had come to Sedgefield earlier in Quorum’s life.”
