PEMBROKE Dock’s Bridge Innovation Centre (BIC) recently welcomed five new tenants to offices and growth units on the Pembrokeshire Science and Technology Park.

The new companies - who have all relocated to the council-owned facility within the last three months – are: Easy Garden Irrigation, Resulting IT, Pembrokeshire Design Limited, Business Smart International, and Panacea Publishing.

Representatives of the companies were formally welcomed to the building by Council Deputy Leader, Keith Lewis.

Cllr Lewis, cabinet member for Economy and Communities, said: “We are delighted to welcome a diverse range of new tenants to our business community at the BIC.

“As well as adding to the variety and vibrancy of the community, we hope they will prosper and help foster jobs growth in Pembrokeshire.”

Sean Lade, of Easy Garden Irrigation, said: “I participated in the Inspire Project – the European-Ireland-Wales programme based at the BIC - and realised it would be a great place for my business to be based as soon as practicable.

“I applied to be a part of the community and get moved in. I’m very excited for what the future brings now that I am based here.”

The BIC operates as a hub for Pembrokeshire business providing an environment for innovation and business growth as well as offering opportunities for knowledge sharing, collaboration and networking.

The facility has a waiting list for office space - a situation hard to envisage a few years ago – but currently has a number of growth units / workshops available. They range in size from 1,356 square feet to 2,938 square feet. Enquiries from businesses are welcome.

News on networking opportunities is expected in the spring.
