“Flexibility was the key reason for us taking our first unit at Station Road. As a new venture in 1994 we took a very small office and moved several times to larger and then multiple units as the business developed, never having to over-commit financially. The all-inclusive licence with just two months’ notice to leave was also very appealing. We also appreciated the on-site office maintenance – one less thing to worry about when you’re trying to run a business.”

Ken Bell, Quad Logic Systems Ltd

“Two things about the centre particularly appealed to us when we came here in 2003 -first the location so close to the Avon ring road and secondly the short-term licence. There’s no long-term commitment and it includes all the services we need, including waste disposal and a fork lift with operator which are essential to us with all the timber we handle. There are also good opportunities for exchanging work, with so many other businesses on the site.”

Pete Lodge, Lodge Joinery (Bristol) Ltd

“We chose to start our business here in 2000, mainly because of the convenient location and good support services provided. Eleven years later we are still very happy here. We receive a lot of clients, so the excellent on-site parking and reception facility are especially important to us.”

Gary & Anne Leach, Ballyhoo Clothing Co Ltd

“These were our first commercial premises, having started the business working from home. Unquestionably the main attraction was no long-term commitment required with the New Work Trust licence. Since then we have benefitted from the flexibility of the set up here, expanding steadily from one to five units and knowing that if we hit hard times we could scale down again. We find the management team very obliging and the on-site services suit us well – the fork lift service provided is particularly useful for our business.

Rob Woodward, All-Pack Solutions

“Before moving to Station Road in 2000 we were in very small, unserviced premises. We wanted somewhere larger and more professional. Moving here allowed us to expand and since then, as we’ve grown, we’ve been able to take on additional office space on-site. The staff are really friendly and helpful which is most important to us because we have a lot of visitors for training on our software. Visitors come from all over the country, so the easy access to the motorways and the Avon ring road are also very important.”

Helen Dann, TS Solutions Ltd

“We looked at various industrial business centres before choosing Station Road Workshops to start our company in 2005. They have a good choice of units of varying sizes, so we were able to get exactly what we wanted, start small and move to a larger unit on site as we expanded. The location was ideal for us and the facilities provided made it easy – the parking, fork lift truck service and café– a one stop shop for everything we needed.”

Paul Jackman, Studio 2 Exhibition & Display Graphics

“We are not based at the Station Road centre, but for the past five years we have been hiring the main meeting room to run NVQ assessments and training sessions for engineering companies. The no frills, businesslike nature of the centre suits us and our client base perfectly and the accessible location is ideal too, as we have clients travelling from South Wales, the Midlands and west of London.”
