What is it like to be a resident at The Heath?
Our residents share their thoughts …
John O’Sullivan CEO CD&P Media
As a small company, one of the big attractions to come here was the flexibility of the arrangement with the landlord who helped us with our very specific office requirements. As a media company we need a voice-over booth, and an edit suite and The Heath’s on-site maintenance team adapted the building to meet our needs.
Accessibility is important. Our customers are literally all over the UK and this location is just five minutes from the M56, five minutes from Runcorn Railway Station and just half an hour to Liverpool or Manchester Airports. The Heath is a very open campus with lots of facilities such as meeting and conferencing rooms, a fantastic restaurant and gym. So, there’s lots of advantages to being at The Heath. We’ve been here for 10 years and hope to be here for another 10 years!
Sonia Houghton, CEO and Founder Cryoniss Ltd
We are a biological samples storage and logistics management company who, at the beginning of 2020 expanded our operations on to The Heath Business and Technical Park.
For us, maintaining sample integrity is absolutely critical to our business – as is being responsive to our customers’ needs. This is specifically why we moved our operations to The Heath. The team here are absolutely fantastic, they are very agile, and they supported us all the way from the design, the build, implementation and maintenance of some absolute world class facilities.
Don Wellings, CEO and Founder of SpheriTech
We specialise in the biomedical industry, so we make anything from wound dressings to corneal bandages, tissue repair material through to artificial blood.
I set up my first business here back in 2006 and have had fantastic support from SOG’s specialist team of engineers on site. We also work with other companies on site on contract assignments. The real key to being here though is the support, the friendliness, the helpfulness of all of the people at The Heath.
John-Paul Dixon, Owner and Director, M Power Activity Service.
I own a small company with about 15 staff. We’ve been operating since 2002 and we specialise in offering very unique adventurist experiences which are specifically aimed currently at people with impairments. We use adventure, fun and excitement to promote learning and education, ensuring people are always having a really good time. We do everything from rock climbing and kayaking to tenpin bowling. The more diverse the better.
We moved to The Heath recently, and I can honestly say that the feeling of friendship and welcomeness to this particular site has been amazing. We’ve been offered all sorts of support, everything from moving into the building to moving shipping containers with all our equipment in, like mountain bikes, canoes and sailboats, to being given space where we can run some of our sessions. The type of welcome that we have had has been phenomenal. We’ve been to a few different venues over the 20 years, and we’ve never experienced anything like that.
Steven Chester, Managing Director of Premium Aquatics
We’re a new aquatic company that opened at The Heath in 2021. We were looking for premises at the time but what was available to me were industrial units, basically very cold and not really suitable for the purpose. I discovered The Heath Business and Technical Park and initially moved into one of their science labs. For the past 2 years I now have a specialist aquarium on site, to the left of the Conference Centre entrance, and it is absolutely fantastic.
As a new business all my fees are combined into one licence fee so that I don’t have to worry about extra electricity bills, extra water bills, it’s all combined into one. The facilities are absolutely amazing. We have a café on site, conferencing, reception, goods in. We have all this extra help that for me as a small business starting out is absolutely vital and very much appreciated. You can’t find these things on general industrial parks, and I’m absolutely delighted to be at The Heath.
