​114 companies are now located at Sci-Tech Daresbury as a result of a record number of companies locating or relocating to the campus in 2016. Companies include InnoCryst which joined the STFC CERN Business Incubation Centre in September 2016.​

John Downes, group managing director of Langtree and chairman of the Sci-Tech Daresbury joint venture company, said he believes it’s a reflection of the unique eco-system that has been created at the campus, which is also a designated Enterprise Zone offering multiple benefits.

“Sci-Tech Daresbury has been set up in a way that collaboration, co-development and business support makes a big impact on all the companies and organisations who locate here.

“The campus is deliberately designed to encourage connectivity between individual businesses, academic institutions and public sector bodies and for many this collaborative culture is a key reason to locate at Sci-Tech Daresbury. Essentially it’s about the sharing of ideas, networks and knowledge.

“When you match this open collaborative culture and leading industry expertise with the world-class technical facilities of the Science and Technology Facilities Council’s Daresbury Laboratory you create exceptional capabilities which businesses are able to tap into to maximise growth and often with potentially world-changing results.”
