Existing Stockport company DigitalID have expanded their operation by taking 3,200sqft at another Orbit property, Grosvenor House, across the road from Stockport College. Whilst Ween Semiconductors have taken 1323sqft in Beckwith House, relocating from Hazel Grove.

helped to drive interest in the area. We are now starting to have the tools we need to help inform businesses of the benefits of having high quality affordable office space in the town centre.
