Warrington’s high technology hub The Base has passed a key employment milestone due to the town’s thriving SME sector.
Based on Dallam Lane, the building is now home to more than 200 employees spread across 21 businesses.
Sylvie Morton, business development manager at Langtree, said: “We add another 10 per cent to our number of employees each year just from the growth generated by our tenants.
“It’s an impressive run-rate and certainly outstrips the national figure.
“Many of our tenants are providing the technological know-how to support the shift towards Industry 4.0 and as they grow they’ll future-proof the town’s economy. They tell us that we offer the flexible, high quality space many are looking for to support their ambitions.”
