January 15, 2017 2:37 PM

Bedford i-labThis New Year Bedford i-lab, based in the successful Priory Business Park, is pleased to welcome a number of new businesses, taking occupancy to record levels post-recession at over 90%.

Operated by Bedford Borough Council, Bedford i-lab provides flexible and affordable office accommodation tailored towards innovative and exciting businesses including start-ups.

Located in Bedford's most prestigious business setting, Priory Business Park, i-lab serves as a base for those looking to grow their innovative businesses and ideas.

With spaces small enough for 1-2 people, and large enough for a team of 20 people, Bedford i-lab has a tremendous commercial presence. Since 2006, the centre has been home to over 250 expanding businesses developing innovative ideas, from start-ups to businesses evolving.

The new tenants include, The Church Agency, a creative industry consultancy; and Medisa Services Ltd, a provider of medical and clinical information to the pharmaceutical, bio-technology and medical device industry, who are relocating to Bedford from Portsmouth.

Also relocating to the i-lab are manufacturers Tectonic Elements Ltd who make audio & electronic components who were formerly based in St Neots; as well as medical diagnostics company Map Sciences Ltd, previously of Witney Oxfordshire.

Mayor of Bedford Borough, and Portfolio Holder for Economic Development Dave Hodgson said 'If the i-lab and its tenants are succeeding it is another measure of the vitality of the local economy, so it's great news that occupancy is above 90% and new businesses are moving here from outside the Borough. '

'The i-lab is unique in the flexibility it offers to small and growing firms. It's been great to see so many tenants grow in the i-lab and even outgrow it in many cases, over the years. We wish the new tenants every success, and offer them a very warm welcome to this unique business centre.'
