Wigan Metropolitan Development Company (Investment) Limited was established in March 1984 by Wigan Borough Council as part of an industrial strategy aimed at regenerating and revitalising a borough then in the grip of deep recession. 

The borough, in common with many of the norths traditional industrial areas, suffered industrial closures, falling demand and increasing redundancy.

WMDC was originally funded with a development loan of £2m from Wigan Borough Council and has subsequently obtained further funding from further grants such as European Development Funding.

We offer a wide range of business accommodation. We can offer build to let options should you require a new build premises.  With extensive knowledge and access to land throughout the Wigan Borough, we are able to assist with rented premises, acquiring land, construction, design and layout of bespoke office and Industrial premises.

We operate the meeting rooms and café at Wigan Investment Centre.  Wigan Development Company have been amazing landlords throughout our time here, always helpful and supportive of our business and our customers.

Our business has been a tenant at Wigan Investment Centre for 3 years now and nothing is too much trouble for the centre staff. Everybody cares and can’t do enough to assist which is a refreshing change.
