About the company:

Our first business centre opened in 2010 on Manor Row in Bradford after a period of extensive renovation and careful restoration. The vision was to develop the area’s magnificent buildings which had been neglected over the years, and to transform them into business centres that could offer high quality serviced offices, meeting rooms and conferencing facilities equipped with the latest technology – whilst still retaining all original features and charm. We also launched the Yorkshire Enterprise Network (YEN) to facilitate business networking in Yorkshire. This is now one of the largest business networks in Yorkshire.

Since 2010, we have expanded to acquire two larger business centres in Bradford and Leeds. The second Bradford business centre ‘Oakwood Court’ on City Road, opened in 2013. The former mill building offers over 28,000 sq ft of serviced office space, large-scale hot-desking area, meeting rooms and on-site parking.

The new site has created many new jobs, including five apprenticeships through a local agency.
