We are celebrating a summer of growth after adding three newly refurbished offices suites to our Broadstone Mill location. These new offices are available from September and each one is approximately 450 square feet
SBIC is currently home to 66 businesses, employing more than 150 people. Offices vary in size from 100 to 1,000 square feet, providing space for 1 to 15 employees, so whether you are just starting out or are looking for somewhere to grow your existing team the centre has the right solution for you.
In fact, we have been helping many businesses to escape their home office and to set up a flexible and affordable work office.
Chris Pimlott, Managing Director of MyBuzz Technologies, started his company two years ago from his back bedroom. After looking for a small office space in order to grow his business, Chris found excellent facilities here as well as a strong support network.
He said: “SBIC not only has all the amenities I need, it also offers a great atmosphere, and for my visitors, first impressions are excellent thanks to the modern decor and friendly welcome at reception. I’ve also benefited hugely from the way the centre actively promotes a community feel with businesses willing to actively help each other. My mobile app business is growing thanks to the support I’ve received at SBIC and I’m very happy to say that moving here was one of the most important decisions I’ve made to date.”
Gareth Chadwick, Managing Director of Wordsworks Copywriting, has also benefited from SBIC facilities. He began hot desking from the centre and as the business grew, he moved into a shared office space, followed quickly by a small dedicated office and now into a larger office.
Gareth said: “SBIC is perfect for us. The quality of the office space, the communal facilities and the level of support available is exceptional. There’s a great sense of community too, with people always willing to chat to you and bounce ideas around.”

Being based here not only gives you a professional space in which to locate your business but can also provide you with an additional level of support through the Incubator Director.
The Director has a wealth of experience in growing businesses and can act as an independent advisor, as a sounding board or just to help facilitate connections with other organisations. Businesses can also take advantage of the various business support seminars and workshops that take place at the centre.
Councillor Kate Butler, Stockport Council’s Executive Member for Economy & Regeneration, said: “All of the SBIC services are designed to help early stage businesses turn great ideas into reality, as well as to help more established businesses grow. Together with its modern facilities, SBIC has easy access to Manchester and the motorway network, benefiting businesses and customers alike.”
