"We have recruited very high calibre students from Keele University with experience in specialist areas relevant to our company and therefore tend to settle quickly in their roles at Alliance Medical."
"Over the years we've seen various companies arrive, grow and progress. To help Cobra thrive, Keele University Science and Innovation Park has always provided us with a supportive environment. Being located on the KUSIP in North Staffordshire, Cobra has been able to take advantage of a great location with good local transport links by train and road - we are a short distance from most of the UK's major cities and between local and international airports."
"It is very challenging to find good quality laboratory facilities, but the lab space at Keele is perfect. It has the right quality of finish to allow our equipment to be moved straight in and provide a good clean area to work in. The management team of the Science and Innovation Park have always been very helpful and supportive. They have provided us with contacts to people companies to move projects forward. They are aware of the kind of grants and funding available and provide details of those that they feel could be appropriate for our company."
"We required flexible office space with high quality information technology systems to allow for data exchange with our clients and group businesses. KUSIP was able to offer us incubator space in the first instance, and within two-and-a-half years we had taken two office space expansions and now occupy purpose-designed offices on the site. We regularly make use of the accommodation available when we have visitors from abroad, and the Park’s central location and transport links are great for a business like ours. Additionally, the proximity to the shops, cafes and other facilities on the campus makes for a pleasant working environment. When we joined KUSIP we had a single UK employee and turnover of c.£4million. Just over two years later, we now employ seven full-time staff and will generate turnover of c.£35million."
