First tenant for flagship Techspace development

Lymm-based Conveyor Networks has become the first company to relocate to the new Techspace office and laboratory development at Sci-Tech Daresbury following a period of sustained growth.

Established in 2009, Conveyor Networks provides warehouse software and automation solutions to retail and e-commerce businesses across the UK.

The company has signed terms to become the first tenant in Techspace Two, one of two sister buildings being built on the site.

Together with Techspace One, it will provide 56,000 sq ft of speculative Grade A office and laboratory space at the Sci-Tech Daresbury Enterprise Zone.

Work on the developments will be completed this summer and is part of a £20m investment into the site including development of the public realm and campus infrastructure, as well as the new buildings.

Conveyor Networks managing director David Carroll said: “The combination of engineering and high tech expertise at Sci-Tech Daresbury offered the perfect fit for his business, which was seeing increased demand for software and technology-led logistics solutions as well as growth in its core automation business.”

Techspace One is a three-storey 46,000 sq ft building consisting of Grade A office space along with wet and dry laboratory facilities, each on its own floor.

It is expected to attract companies from sectors such as biomedical, material science, instrumentation and clean technology.
