North Manchester science and technology facility, Hexagon Tower, has been re-branded as part of its accommodation into the UK’s largest group of science and technology parks, the Business Environments for Science and Technology (BEST) Network.
Hexagon Tower is home to some of the most innovative commercial science and technology businesses in the North West, including multi-national giants such as Intertek and Trimega as well as smaller, innovative firms such as CSS, who develop chemical dyes for solar panels and were also recently awarded a grant from the Technology Strategy Board.
The science park’s integration into BEST Network provides its tenants with exciting opportunities to foster excellence through networking and the ability for associated tenants to exchange knowledge and expertise, as well as access to funding.
Stewart Needham, Facilities Manager at Hexagon Tower, said: “This re-brand represents a successful step forward for Hexagon Tower, our tenants and the BEST Network as a whole; allowing all to develop successful relationships that can help to promote excellence across the science and technology sectors.
“We look forward to an open and fruitful relationship with the other BEST Network Science parks across the UK, and also look forward to our tenants profiting from the support and access to funding that the network provides.”
