Demand Continues for This Award-Winning WorkSpace


BERWICK WorkSpace, North Northumberland's only dedicated business incubator is proving to be a launch pad for successful businesses. It has supported many businesses since opening in 2008, with several recently moving on to their own, or larger premises after sustained growth.

After a string of awards and an eclectic mix of UK and international businesses. The centre, operated by TEDCO Ltd, is credited with providing 54 jobs including 23 newly created positions, good news indeed in what is often described as an economically deprived area.

This demonstrates that the support and commitment we provide makes a real difference to small companies in their quest for growth and development."

Located just off Marygate and seconds from Berwick's main thoroughfare, Berwick WorkSpace is now home to a diverse range of businesses.

Many have relocated to Berwick from elsewhere in the UK and Europe, seeing the buildings facilities on a par with the best in Europe but without the congestion of its bigger urban conurbations.

Servitir 2000 SLU which offers specialist assistance to help international hauliers recover European VAT more quickly is a case in point; the company relocated from Spain last year and now runs its operation from Northumberland. …
