All units at Bordon Enterprise Park now tenanted
All units at the Bordon Enterprise Park are now tenanted by regional and national businesses who have brought more than 200 jobs into the local area.
The enterprise park is under management by the Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company (WBRC) and property agents JLL and Knight Frank have assisted WBRC to let the available units.
The interest in moving or setting up businesses at Bordon Enterprise Park only highlights that the former barracks site is becoming a popular new destination for commercial entities in the region.
Businesses and local services on site include Hampshire Fire Service, The Big Biscuit Company, The Outdoor Training Centre and Konstructa Hire. MSL Global, a catering, hospitality and event management solutions business has been situated on the site for several years.
Mike Tasker, managing director at MSL Global, said:
“We have been based in the Bordon area for over 30 years and most our people live in this area too. We enjoy being part of a strong, local community and we think the creation of a commercial hub at Whitehill & Bordon will benefit businesses across the region. MSL enjoys the benefit of a developed network of local suppliers supporting our daily business activities.”
The Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company took over the management of the former military units at the start of 2016 and businesses have been filling the spaces ever since. The Bordon Enterprise Park has evolved into a great place to do business and the aim is to see existing companies grow and create further jobs. The Whitehill and Bordon Regeneration company aim to utilise this area to provide a spring board for local businesses looking to grow into future spaces.
In addition to the Enterprise park, there is another 20,000 sqm of employment space. The land carries with it Enterprise Zone status, providing a catalyst for investment. As one of the selected spaces across the country, the Enterprise Zone initiative is a government plan that promotes the progression and support of new and growing businesses.
James Child, Project Lead at Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company, said:
“Whilst the long-term regeneration of Whitehill and Bordon takes place, it is important that the site is put to good use. We want to support the local community by providing local services and businesses with appropriate commercial spaces for them to operate out of, and it is great to see so many of the commercial units now occupied at the barracks.”
