THREE new companies have leased units on Cranfield University’s Technology Park.

Atheon Analytics, Comms365 and Saab Automobile Parts UK Ltd have taken space within the Innovation Centre.

Regeneration specialist St Modwen says the trio of lettings reflects a growing trend in businesses looking for high-specification space on flexible terms.

Atheon, an analytics led business support provider, has moved from nearby Milton Keynes and full local internet registry Comms365 from Ruscombe Park in Berkshire.

Saab Automobile Parts UK Ltd has joined the Cranfield Innovation Centre businesses having chosen to stay in Cranfield rather than relocating elsewhere.

The Tech Park’s strong collaboration with Cranfield University and the technology support facets of the Cranfield Innovation Centre were also key deciding factors for both companies in their choice of office.

Comms365 MD Mike van Bunnens, said: “We are now surrounded by innovation and are able to harness business success throughout this area into a meaningful and productive network. We are delighted with our new office and all the facilities that have been made available to us here.”

Rupert Wood, regional director at St. Modwen said: “Cranfield University Technology Park continues to attract a high calibre of science, technology and knowledge-based businesses, looking to benefit from our close working partnership with Cranfield University; and the associated knowledge, resource and academic expertise available to tenants. It is vital to cultivate innovation and commerce, especially in a challenging economy, so in addition to these resources we have also expanded our support services at the Tech Park to include free business seminars offering topical advice and guidance, affordable virtual office solutions for those seeking a prestigious address without the overheads, ‘hot pods’ for short term rental and a host of administrative support options.”
