Access to quality facilities was one of the main drivers for deciding to locate the business at the NETPark. We have been able to use this as a launch pad to link into support from CPI and world-class expertise from Durham University.

Steve Clements, - Managing Director, aXenic

The proximity to the universities and the infrastructure are very important factors. Ultimately having a presence in Europe is very valuable to us and we intend to stay at NETPark for many years to come.

Dr Arnab Basu, - CEO, Kromek

CPI has developed a specialist offering to support SMEs looking to develop their printable electronics applications and our partnership with Business Durham has been instrumental in attracting several SMEs to locate here in the region.

Dr Jon Helliwell, - Director of Printable Electronics, CPI

We initially came because of the printable electronics centre but access to a highly skilled semi conductor workforce in the North East has been a key factor in us staying and growing here, as well as the value for money office space and the access to funding.

Ken Williamson, - COO, PragmatIC Printing

It fits perfectly for us that we’re surrounded by like-minded companies at NETPark. There are a number of highly skilled people in the area who can help us grow our business. The facilities and services offered by NETPark are first class, they make office life simple and engaging.

NETPark Phase Three

NETPark Phase Three – 270,000 sq ft expansion

Plans to expand NETPark have been approved by Durham County Council Cabinet, who have agreed to invest £49.6m to finance the expansion providing up to 270,000 sq ft of new laboratory, office, production and storage space at one of the UK’s premier science parks.

The success of NETPark is such that expansion space is needed so that companies can reach their full potential. The first phase of expansion plans to deliver 270,000 sq ft of additional space with design and build opportunities from 5,000 – 80,000 sq ft in addition to speculative units varying in size to grow, scale-up and commercialise their operations. This initial phase of development is part of larger expansion plans to the park, which includes a Masterplan for up to 433,800 sq ft across the 26-acre site.

Business Durham, who manage NETPark, has forged a strong partnership with Clear Futures – led by the Robertson Group – to design and build the state-of-the-art facilities needed to make Phase Three a reality. Plans will be drawn up working with businesses to deliver laboratory, office, production and storage space of the highest quality.

Recently completed infrastructure work include a new road, creating a junction onto the strategically important A177, and opening up critical development land. This has been made possible by a £5m grant from the North East LEP, as part of the Government’s North East Growth Deal.

NETPark Phase Three

NETPark Phase Three, offers design and build opportunities from 5,000 – 80,000 sq ft for businesses looking to expand on the park or for ambitious science, engineering and technology businesses looking to relocate to NETPark from outside the area.

The North East Technology Park (NETPark)

NETPark is a vibrant collaborative community of innovative science, engineering and technology companies whose technologies make a difference to peoples lives across the world.

Phase 3 has opened up over 26 acres of development land north of NETPark
