Welcome to our first tenants
A biotech company developing treatments for autoimmune diseases and a scientific consultancy are among the first companies to move to the Bristol & Bath Science Park.
The Park’s Innovation Centre opened its doors to businesses this week (Monday September 12, 2011).
Formumetrics – a scientific consultancy that helps formulate new and improved products, BPE Solicitors, YFM Equity Partners and Science City Bristol are the first to move into their brand new offices.
Dr Keith Bean, managing director at Formumetrics, said: “The Science Park will be a great place to work and do business. On the first morning we bumped into another tenant over coffee that happens to work with the same client base as us and as a result we have already found ways to work together in the future. We know our business will thrive here.
“We needed a workplace that would encourage interaction and ideas and provide us with an impressive shop window for our business. The Science Park will deliver all this and more.”
Apitope, a company which focuses on the discovery and development of treatments for autoimmune and allergic diseases, including multiple sclerosis and Graves’ disease, will be moving into the Innovation Centre in October.
Partner companies to the new National Composites Centre are also beginning to come on site and this will expand the scientific and business community.
Bonnie Dean, chief executive at the Bristol & Bath Science Park, said: “These first occupiers characterise the diverse and rich mix of companies and organisations that we intend to attract to the Science Park.”
