SEGRO has welcomed five new customers to its Enterprise Quarter on the Slough Trading Estate, as demand for well-located and modern industrial space from small and medium businesses continues to be strong in Slough.
SEGRO’s Enterprise Quarter offers space under 1,500 sq ft on Yeovil Road and Montrose Avenue. The company has been seeing strong demand in this size bracket at Slough Trading Estate from SMEs and start-ups, with only a single unit remaining vacant out of 23. It is a great illustration of how the company is supporting the growth of local businesses and helping them to scale up and learn from each other, as part of its Responsible SEGRO commitment to support its local economies, communities and environments.
iBookBinding recently established a new workshop at the Enterprise Quarter. The startup specialises in 3D printing and book binding, using the new space to store and manufacture bookbinding tools.
Stepan Chizhov, Director, iBookBinding, said:
“When looking for workshop space for my business, I found that Slough Trading Estate offers the widest choice of units in the area. It ticks all my boxes from location to size, amenities and transport links. Working with SEGRO has also been a smooth and straightforward process, which has enabled me to restart work quickly. I have ambitious plans for iBookBinding and with a variety of units available at Slough Trading Estate, I am confident that SEGRO will continue to meet my needs as my business grows.”
Meanwhile, Golden Group Services – a cleaning and linen hire company – has also moved into the Enterprise Quarter. The company, currently located in Central London, is taking up a second space in Slough to store and distribute its products, expanding its services to a wider market.
Mo Ali, CEO, Golden Group Services, said:
“The decision to expand to Slough was easy. Slough Trading Estate is very well connected, giving us access to new customers, and units at the Enterprise Quarter are specifically designed for small and growing businesses. We were supported by SEGRO at every step of the process, from selecting the unit that best suited our businesses needs to our ongoing day-to-day operations.”
Other new customers include Divine Premier UK Limited – a wholesaler of health and beauty products; Orbis Protect – a property security systems company; and Astrophysics Inc. – a USA-headquartered x-ray security company that is expanding to the UK and will be utilising the facility for service operations.
Jo Jackson, Director, Thames Valley at SEGRO, said:
“The Slough Trading Estate is a vibrant community, where hundreds of businesses of many different types and sizes choose to operate from. It’s brilliant to see these small and medium sized organisations taking space at the Enterprise Quarter and using it as a platform to grow and flourish, as well reaffirming Slough a home for a diverse range of innovators, creators and makers.
