“We located the Department for International Trade’s North West team at Daresbury because it’s a fantastically supportive environment for growing high quality businesses, showcasing the best of new UK ideas and capability.  The partnerships are all in place here, sparking exactly the sort of positive interactions that generate real trade.  We often bring staff from our Global network to see the facilities and meet the great exporters on site, and they’re always tremendously impressed with the whole Daresbury experience.”

We very much appreciate the practical assistance & support received from the Virtual Engineering & Hartree Centres at Daresbury, which has been a major factor in helping us to develop and validate this important technology whilst helping us get to market."
