Just from being here over a year now, we’ve worked with at least three different companies on-site. So that’s new business leads that we wouldn’t have had is we hadn’t moved to NETPark.
Dr Neil Sim, High Force Research
CPI and Business Durham work in partnership to support SMEs looking to develop their innovative products or processes. At NETPark, CPI acts as an anchor organisation, attracting companies to locate here on the site, in order to benefit from the established and unique innovation networks across the entire supply chain.
Dr Arun Harish, Strategy Director, CPI, CPI
It’s nice to have our own office at NETPark and Business Durham has been great. We’ve restructured the business and they’ve supported us as we’ve moved into bigger premises. We couldn’t have asked for better landlords.
Richard Kirk, CEO PolyPhotonix, PolyPhotonix
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
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.
Stuart Wilson, - CEO, Ascarii
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
Filtronic chose NETPark for a number of reasons including the modern infrastructure and facilities, the established, innovative and like-minded businesses located there and finally the flexibility it offers to enable us to scale our business.
Michael Tyreman, Chief Financial Officer, Filtronic
The quality of the facilities at NETPark and the attitude of staff is first class. It has a really dynamic, innovative atmosphere.
Dr Neil Loxley, - Chief executive, IBEX
Business Durham has been instrumental in helping us to bring SamplePod to market, as they knew we were looking for a company to produce a low-cost electronic tag and they introduced us to PragmatIC.
Andy Turner, Quality Hospital Solutions, Quality Hospital Solutions
NETPark is great for our staff and clients as it’s easy to get to know people here with the many networking events and other site activities taking place all the time.
Lorna Crombie, - director at CK Group
One of the positive aspects of being part of the local authority is that we can put companies in touch with the right people quickly, such as in planning or building control, which is really useful if a company is managing their own fit out.
Janet Todd, - NETPark manager
NETPark is in an excellent location, there are many like-minded businesses on the park – it really is an excellent base from which we hope to grow our business.
David Weinkove, CEO, Magnitude BioSciences
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.
