With planning approved last month for the development of 24,900sqm of office, research and development space at Millbrook, the globally renowned centre for testing and technology development is pleased to announce that the first office and workshop space is available now at the Technology Park’s new Innovation Centre.

Situated within one of Europe’s leading test and engineering solution providers for the automotive, public transport, energy and defence markets; occupants of the Innovation Centre will benefit from access to Millbrook’s test, engineering and proving ground facilities.

Ideally suited to start-ups or existing companies requiring a more strategic location, the Millbrook Innovation Centre offers a flexible and secure facility with access to a shared reception, meeting rooms, parking and staff restaurant.

“We can offer small companies and start-ups the perfect platform to build their businesses,” explained Alex Burns, CEO of Millbrook. “We have extensive laboratories, 70km of varied test tracks, including hill routes, high speed areas and challenging off road courses, as well as access to a wide range of fuels and lubricants and Electric Vehicle charging points. All this coupled with 45 years of engineering, test and validation experience on your doorstep makes Millbrook a unique offering for prospective tenants.”

“The Millbrook Innovation Centre is the first step towards creating a Technology Park that will enhance the future of automotive engineering with new facilities for research and development” continued Alex, “and we hope that the space will soon become a hub for entrepreneurial activity.”
