The 3M BIC is fantastic place to locate your business. Nestled between the River Colne and the Huddersfield Broad Canal, it’s hard to believe that it’s situated so close to the City centre, motorway links and train station. Since moving in over two and half years ago the management team have been nothing but supportive towards the growing needs of my business. Their willingness to help with a genuine desire to see the businesses within the 3M BIC succeed, is only matched by the team’s friendly attitude and the overall service that they provide. In addition to this the 3M BIC also has an excellent range of high quality facilities and their IT setup and security infrastructure is superb. Being a video games development studio handling high profile IP’s and projects for worldwide clients, the 3M BIC’s security infrastructure was one of the key reasons why we decided to setup our base here. Put simply…whether renting an office for the first time or the tenth time, I’d recommend the 3M Buckley Innovation Centre in a heartbeat.

When we first moved in to the 3M BIC, the initial plan was to have a temporary lab set up and then move to different premises, but we decided to stay put. The long term plan now is to remain where we are, as there are so many benefits for the company.

Being based from the 3M Buckley Innovative Centre provides my business with a sense of prestige. It is the ideal location to be, to make use of student internships with the University, it is central to town and has top of the range facilities to access. I am proud to be based here and as a growing start-up think it provides my business with a strong sense of credibility.

When I discovered the 3M BIC facilities in Huddersfield, it was clear that this specific environment had the key components to meet our R&D objectives. I appreciate the open business and science community within the 3M BIC. Access to collaborations and support for businesses are available, which is a huge plus. Having businesses ‘in-house’ in the physical and bio sciences is an advantage as we can walk into each others offices if we need support or are looking for collaborations.
Having high tech facilities on our door step, such as those at the 3M BIC, are invaluable to small businesses like ours that don’t have the revenue to buy big machines. We saved lots of money in the process and ended up with a product that is perfect for our customers needs.

As a network member of 3M we at 3volution Limited have enjoyed the great facilities and the terrific support we receive from 3M’s admin team. We hope that we have also contributed to the facility by providing free ad hoc legal advice to our fellow tenants. We trust that we will continue to enjoy a long and fruitful collaboration and recommend it highly.

The 3M Centre is a great place to work. Full of fellow creatives, it's a bright, fresh and open space which is perfectly-placed for Huddersfield town centre for business meetings or lunchtime catch ups with friends. A really lovely place to be and a great price too!
