Business is booming for companies based at Sci-Tech Daresbury following another year of strong growth, according to data revealed in the annual tenants’ campus survey.
The survey of 97 businesses based at the leading science and technology campus revealed that more than £115 million in sales were generated in 2017, with annual sales growth of 33 per cent in the past 12 months.
During that period 71 per cent of Sci-Tech Daresbury companies saw their sales grow, up from 55 per cent of companies in 2016. Part of this sales growth has been driven by strong overseas sales with exports accounting for 42 per cent of the total sales.
