Business Park with a Real Inte Es Ernational Flavour; Flourishing Wirral International Business Park's Occupiers Range from Small Industrial Enterprises to Major Companies with a Massive Global Reach


AS CHAIR of the Wirral International Business Park (WIBP) cluster group, you would expect Frank Rogers to be bursting with enthusiasm about its attributes - and he doesn't disappoint.

"It is not until you drive arouS nd WIBP that you fully appreciate the scale of the place," he said.

"And, as the name suggests, it does have a real international nature to it."

WIBP isn't a single business park as such. It incorporates entities such as the Riverside Park office scheme at one end and The Croft business and retail park at the other.

"What we have tried to do in the last three years is unify the business voice and keep both local and national politicians in touch with what is going on here."

One of the North West's biggest commercial developers - Langtree - owns two smaller industrial parks within WIBP - Lumina, which has 13 units totalling 75,008 sq ft, with one still available, and Apex Court, which has nine units totalling 59,434 sq ft, with two available. …
