Compassion In Action

It is an honour to acknowledge the amazing work of WMDC.  As a Charity providing  furniture, food and clothes to the most vulnerable families in our Community it is with heartfelt gratitude for their provision of a warehouse helping us to help others, without this provision this would not be possible.

The current cost of living crisis has had a detrimental effect on many families and our provision is needed more than ever.

A sincere heartfelt thanks to Kirsty Waite and all at WMDC

I’ve been leasing an office in Wigan Investment Centre since 2013. It’s a great environment, both for myself and the many clients who have come here. I can honestly say the entire team of staff are amazing and work so well together. From those who manage and maintain the buildings to those who give the all important friendly and professional welcome at Reception. You will quickly see that everyone matters who comes through the door of The Investment Centre. I have also experienced how staff here are constantly improving the service they provide to tenants. They really listen to us and value feedback to develop their services. I can highly recommend leasing an office here because as a tenant you’ll be supported by a very efficient, experienced and competent team.

We first became involved with the Wigan Metropolitan Development Co, through a business acquisition.

The facility itself offers ease of access and boasts a very large carpark that always has plenty of available parking. There’s always a friendly face to welcome you into a bright and newly refurbished reception, and unusually, it also offers an onsite café serving hot food.

Like most businesses in a post-pandemic world, we are now using a hybrid-working pattern and that necessitated a reduction in our office footprint commitment. Their approach to this requirement was pragmatic, professional and incredibly friendly.

Kirsty Waite was a pleasure to deal with. Kirsty was always happy to collaborate with valuable advice and support in the planning and in providing superb contractor support with the works needed for the dilapidations, using her preferred suppliers. Kirsty is always available, we often exchanged emails very late into the evening.

Nothing is ever too much trouble.

In almost every case, where I have had to negotiate any form of dilaps or renewal terms, I have never experienced anything close to the pleasant and positive approach of that offered by Kirsty and her team; and I am delighted that, as a result of their efforts we were able to maintain our presence within the Business Centre.

Cloud Perspective

Like many small businesses, Cloud Perspective Ltd was formed out of necessity when its two owners were made redundant, from two separate companies in 2011.

After a year of working in our home office loft, when we decided to get some employees, we approached WDMC and they were able to provide us with a 500 sqm space capable of supporting 6 staff. With a professional reception team, provided by WMDC and an attractive Head Office, we began to believe that we had a proper business.

As we expanded, the WMDC, supported the business with two larger spaces in the same building, making expansion a simple matter of carrying our desks down the hall with the WMDC caretaking team pitching in with their support.

Although we’ve relocated away from the Wigan Metropolitan area, 12 years later we’re still in business, supporting customers worldwide with their customer data support needs.

I would recommend that anybody starting a business consider WMDC for their turnkey business accommodation requirements.

Attain Digital

ATTAIN have traded within Wigan Borough since 1999 and we’ve had several office locations throughout the years. We’ve been based back at Wigan Investment Centre for the last two years and we absolutely love it. Our key benefits of having an office based within the Investment Centre include:
  • Ample parking space for both the team and visitors
  • Within walking distance of the town centre
  • Onsite cafe
  • Central location with easy access from the motorway
  • Close to local amenities including the bus and train station (5 minute walk)
  • Serviced office space
  • Value for money – having rented space across Wigan, WMDC deliver the very best service at an incredibly competitive rate and since moving we’ve been able to save 27% on our previous annual rental overhead
  • An excellent team who goes above and beyond to help and support

Red Pepper Cafe

It has been a pleasure to be a tenant at the Investment Centre for the last 14 years and we have enjoyed our space and the relationship with our Company Manager Kirsty and her team. They have been helpful and fair working with our small team. We operate the cafe within the centre, and our customers routinely comment on the surrounding areas, we have the Leeds, Liverpool canal running alongside and excellent parking facilities. Kirsty’s team keep the grounds maintained and we have 24-hour security. Reception is always willing to help so overall a great building and even better service when you need it. So, thank you all for the support and your professionalism, we truly appreciate the first-class service you provide.

Cognitive Therapies / Mind Healthcare

Cognitive Therapies assist individuals in medical and legal settings by providing psychological services for individuals who are experiencing trauma concerns. Having a good quality, safe and secure environment is really important for us and our clients. You never get a second chance to make a first impression.

We moved from our last offices after six years of continuous client delivery. It was a big decision to relocate. However, it was time to grow, and time to refresh, plus we needed more space. After a comprehensive and thorough search, we identified Elizabeth House as the best office facility to meet our needs.

Things were made easy for us from day one. Every member of the team from WMDC made the effort for a smooth and successful transition to our new office. It was particularly refreshing to collaborate with a team of great people who are really enthusiastic about what they do and deliver on task. It is so good to be able to call upon WMDC staff who are very supportive and helpful individuals. This simple description means a lot. So, we can focus on our aims and objectives.

As an experienced business practitioner and Applied psychologist, I’m really pleased with the decision we made to move to Elizabeth house. It’s a pleasure to collaborate with people who demonstrate a commitment to continuous good service, and continuous improvement.

Thank you Kirsty and team.
