Sharon from F1rst Commercial Recruitment is based in the Regent House business centre.

Here she tells us why Stockport is a great location for business.

The team at Orbit Developments provided an exceptionally seamless service, enabling us to move into Dunham House well within our desired timescales with minimum disruption to the business. The workspace provides excellent value for money and the strategic location of the property means our office is easily accessible for employees and visitors alike.

The professional work space at Springfield House represents our company perfectly and the central location is second to none. We’re a short drive from Manchester Airport and benefit from direct trains to Euston and Manchester. We have a number of high quality cafés and restaurants on our doorstep, which is great for entertaining clients or grabbing some lunch. We can’t imagine being based anywhere else.

“We needed to ensure our offices had easy access to multiple modes of transport and Wilmslow is perfectly placed with a mainline train station close the offices and Manchester Airport 10 minutes away via road.

“The location was key for our business as we’ll regularly be travelling to our US office, welcoming international visitors or bringing in key buyers from London to view our latest collections.”

“As we’ve expanded the business, we felt a relocation was necessary to continue to provide a high-quality service with a focus on hands on customer service.

“Basing our office in Eccles enables us to easily access customers via the motorway network and train connections and we were keen to stay with Orbit Developments as we’ve found the offices to be very presentable and affordable with flexible contracts. These are all important factors when growing a small business.”

“Ladyfield House has been a perfect location for us in Wilmslow, offering easy access to the train station and the nearby shops and amenities.  It has enabled us to grow our business and make great connections with other tenants based within Emerson offices.  The offices and surroundings are well maintained and very well operated.  It’s easy to see why this is such a popular choice for Cheshire, particularly with transport links to Manchester and London literally on the doorstep.”

“It’s fair to say the location and workspace at 2 City Approach has helped moved the company forward by providing the business with a professional and easily accessible studio – both of which are important aspects when we’re pitching to international companies such as Nintendo.

“We’ve found the opportunities for growth, transport links in Eccles along with access to a quality talent pool for recruitment extremely beneficial to the business and more recently Orbit Developments stepped in to help to find us a cost-effective superfast broadband solution that has massively improved our workflow.”

“We were based at 1-3 Grove Street for 4 years and it suited our needs at the time in terms of the size, style and location of the space.

“Being in the loft, the space was quirky, which suited our company approach; and as the office was slap-bang in the middle of Wilmslow, it was easy for our staff and clients to access the office, as well as providing easy access to Wilmslow’s shops, restaurants and bars.

“We enjoy a great relationship with the Emerson team; and their flexible approach has meant that as we outgrew 1-3 Grove Street, we were able to move to a much bigger office at 50a Alderley Road within their Wilmslow portfolio.”

“The ladies on the 11th floor reception never seem to be able to do enough to help you and they greet our visitors very professionally and are very prompt with messages. The sales team and management are also first on hand when needed and I cannot recommend them highly enough.”

“With ambitious plans to continue growing our business, we have taken the opportunity to move to new offices that better suit our business needs and allow space for our rapidly expanding team.

“In our search for new offices we were contacted by Orbit. At every step along the way they handled our enquiry and the agreement superbly. They were keen and interested to pursue the situation initially without being at all pushy and have been completely professional at all times. This was not always the case with some other property companies that we spoke to. If we were told that they would come back to us by a certain time or get some information to us, Orbit never failed to do so. If our main contact at Orbit was going to be away from the office, we always knew who to speak to. An absolutely first class service at all times. Thanks from all at Chancellor”.

“Working with Orbit Developments has been a pleasure. They have been our Landlord for a number of years now. They have impeccable customer service and an eye for detail that met our requirements with ease. We originally came to Orbit’s Middlebrook development in 2008 and as our business grew we were in need of larger premises. Orbit facilitated our move to Britannia Business Park where we have expanded again and now occupy nearly 28,000 sq ft of warehouse/office space in 2 units. Their experienced team worked with us closely to provide us with the right space”.
