Testimonial from Andy Douse, founder Director – Red Publications (OF23/24)
The York Eco Business Centre is the ideal place to grow your company.
We moved here nearly a decade ago and during that time the management have allowed us to develop our business by taking on three office units.
The Centre has everything we need. Great offices with nice high ceilings, small and large meeting rooms, with AV equipment (that works) and a car park. There are communal toilets, kitchen areas and even shower rooms, all of which are cleaned and looked after by the management team.
The best thing is our serviced reception team, who are welcoming to visitors, sort the post and will take in our packages. They also arrange the meeting rooms for us. The other tenants here are friendly and we cross sell services.
Awesomness happens here!
Testimonial from Mary Ratcliffe Curative Hypnotherapy (OF15)
The Eco Centre is a great place for me to run my hypnotherapy business from. I know that my clients are greeted in a friendly and professional manner in reception. As a sole trader, working from home is far too solitary for me, so here, at the Centre, between client sessions, I can usually grab a few minutes to catch up with anyone who is around and also wanting to take a quick break from work. Any time I have any concerns or need any practical help with anything, I always seem to be able to find someone, a neighbour or someone on reception, happy to give me some of their time and expertise to help me get un-stuck again. The tenant’s kitchen is occasionally a hub of activity and socialising, and my privacy is always respected when I’m in my room with the blinds down.
Testimonial from Rob Pearmain Yorcloud (Of 31)
Yorcloud joined the business centre in 2014, starting with a small 2 person office and moving up to the larger office as our business grew.
The centre provides a great working environment for our staff, and is very well situated to the major road links and Clifton Moor shopping. Clients love coming to the centre for meetings where they are well looked after by the friendly reception team.
Any issues (all minor) are quickly addressed, and the management of the property is excellent.
I highly recommend the centre as a place to base your small business.
Testimonial from Richard Wiles – Wiles Property Ltd (OF32)
Being a tenant at York Eco Business Centre has been a key ingredient in the success of our young business.
The offices provide a perfect base and the support of the team at the Centre has proved invaluable.
Testimonial from Simon Frost – Brightfive Ltd (WK01)
Brightfive were among the first tenants to join the Eco Business Centre.
Over the years, we have enjoyed and benefited from the sense of community within the centre. The neighbourly environment encourages tenants to interact with and support one another. Not only does this provide a pleasant working environment for our staff, it has also proved advantageous for our business. Casual chats in the corridors and shared spaces have helped us find new clients, partners and service providers within the building.
The management team have been unfailingly helpful, friendly and accommodating throughout our tenancy, and a real pleasure to work with.
Simon Frost, Director, Brightfive ltd.
Testimonial from Dr Sue Pemberton – Yorkshire Fatigue clinic (M3 & M4)
We have two offices at the York Eco Business Centre that we use as consulting rooms for our rehabilitation service. Our visitors have very specific needs, as some struggle with mobility or find it hard to cope with busy or noisy environments. The Eco Centre has been ideal as it has a calm and professional atmosphere, with all the disabled facilities that we need. Visitors find the reception area welcoming and comfortable. The reception staff are a valuable support service as the first point of contact for our business when people arrive. We have moved around the building to suit our needs and the staff have been very accommodating and understanding of our requirements. Access to open air and especially the roof top terrace in the summer is a unique feature. I have always felt that it is challenging running your own business but working at the Centre and having the support of the team makes it all a little easier.
Testimonial from Michael & Joyce – Kip McGrath York – North (OF25)
When we were searching for premises, the staff at the Eco Business Centre could not have been more helpful, which made our decision an easy one. The building is modern and clean with all the facilities we needed to start up our business, both for ourselves and our clients. The eco-friendly nature of the building was an added bonus for us, as was the attractive internal garden area and rooftop picnic space. It has proved to be a warm and friendly place to work and the comparatively low rental costs combined with rate relief have been crucial factors in the development of our business.
Testimonial from Alice Hildred – White Rose Bakes (WK02)
I moved my business into the York Eco Business Centre in 2014. It provided the only truly affordable and non-terrifying way I could find to nudge my fledgling bakery out of my home kitchen and into a commercial space.
I am so glad I made that decision.
The Eco Business Centre is in a great area of York for industry, and includes all of the facilities you could need to operate your business – as well as bonus ones like the beautiful courtyard garden!
The Eco Business Centre is home to an eclectic range of businesses, many of which are small/start-up enterprises. As a tenant I have always found it to have a friendly, community atmosphere. There are opportunities to meet and network with lots of different people, and there is a sense of unity among the small business owners there.
Testimonial from Ian Mulrooney – SW2F (OF26)
The YEBC is a great place to have my business, the staff and businesses are a great mix of people who function well. The staff are helpful and make everyone welcome. A good place to develop and grow your business
