Business booming in the North West – thanks to Warrington


BUSINESS is booming in the North West despite Brexit uncertainty – and it’s a lot to do with Warrington.
This is the view of Martin O’Rourke, commercial director at Birchwood Park, the largest single-owned business park in the region.
Following analysis earlier this year by the Cheshire and Warrington local enterprise partnership, it was revealed that the areas’s economy is a huge 40 per centabove the North West average, and 21 per cent above the national average, contributing a massive £30.9bn to the UK economy.
“Without doubt, Warrington and its hive of businesses, which Birchwood Park is proud to support, plays a hugely integral part in this success,” says Mr O’Rourke
“Warrington is uniquely placed within the thriving Cheshire Science Corridor, which has been awarded official Enterprise Zone status, and at Birchwood Park we believe this makes for an exciting time within the region in terms of growth possibilities.
“Home to nationally and internationally significant research facilities and businesses, we have the ability to attract around 500 businesses to the Warrington area, with the potential to create 20,000 jobs as a result – and we’re already championing this at Birchwood Park. With more than 30 per cent of the businesses on Birchwood Park being linked to the science, engineering and nuclear sectors, we’re widely acknowledged as the UK’s hub for the nuclear services sector with companies including: Wood, Arcadis, NNL, Nuvia, and Rolls-Royce calling us home, and have invested a further £12.5m into further office and warehouse space – which the region is crying out for.
“Businesses based in the area benefit from a very unique offering in terms of location and connectivity. Birchwood Park is certainly a shining example. The importance of accessibility and great local transport links, particularly for medium to large firms and those with operating warehouse distribution, has never been greater – businesses are needing to answer the demand for products and services in an ever-widening radius, and so greater connectivity is key to booming business. Business parks need to set themselves apart in this area, and that’s why at Birchwood Park we’re proud to boast the very best in transport links for our occupiers, being just two miles from the M6/M62 interchange, 18 minutes via train from Manchester city centre, 25 minutes from Manchester airport, and 35 minutes via train to Liverpool city centre.”
