When I looked at options in Manchester I took intoconsideration cost, commute time and energy of the environment andfound that Stockport compared very favourably.
“I think there is a buzz around the town with a great deal ofpotential in all areas.”
“Likewise Orbit have been exceptional, not only as a provider ofgood quality premises, but in its commitment to being genuinely’hands on’ in the local business community. That too was acontributing factor.”
