Four businesses have taken additional space within Liverpool Innovation Park at the Edge Lane and Wavertree Technology Park campuses following their rapid expansion over recent months.
Express Workforce Training has grown into a 7, 841 sq ft unit as a result of a widespread retail expansion in the Liverpool area. The company is also a tenant at Space Northwest’s Knowsley Industrial Estate, where it provides other forms of skills training for young people.
123 Debt Solutions has been a tenant at the park for more than three years and has grown exponentially in that time. As a result, the company, which provides debt management solutions and support, has expanded into 5,799 sq ft of office space.
Adam Rudnick, director and co-founder of 123 Debt Solutions, said: “Since we moved into Wavertree Technology Park in 2008, we have had to increase our office space on three occasions due to company expansion. We now operate out of five units within the technology park. We have always found Ashtenne/Space Northwest to be extremely flexible and accommodating with our requests, and the team has made all of our moves and transitions as easy as possible.”
Meanwhile, on the Edge Lane Campus at LIP, state of the art cloud communications systems provider, Crosby Systems Ltd has moved into a 953 sq ft unit and global mobile games publishing and development company, Thumbstar has upsized to a 1,352 sq ft office.
Peter Sullivan, CFO of Thumbstar, said: “We currently have nine full time members of staff and we expect to continue to grow in the coming months. The company is expanding to service its publishing and distribution network including the supply of copy protected content to the 189 game shop platform for China Telecom’s 160 million subscribers of both its in-house-developed mobile games, as well as for a rapidly increasing number of third party developers,.”
In addition to companies expanding within Liverpool Innovation Park, new tenant, K Sure Marketing Ltd, has taken 1,986 sq ft at Wavertree Technology Park. Space Northwest provided the marketing and advertising solution business with an answer to its property requirements by offering flexible terms and the ability to grow within the Park as it experiences further expansion.
Emily Armstrong, regional manager at Ashtenne/Space Northwest, said: “It is fantastic to see so many businesses expand within Liverpool Innovation Park. Each of them provides excellent services and we are very proud to have them as tenants. Our team offers a flexible approach to leases, which allows for this type of business growth. We are very pleased that these companies have chosen to stay at, or in the case of K Sure Marketing, relocate to, Liverpool Innovation Park.”
