Haverhill business centre becomes the new base for precious metals experts
Metals Daily, one of the world’s leading and fastest online sources of precious metals news, research and prices, has relocated from central London to the EpiCentre at Haverhill Research Park as part of an expansion into selling precious metals to private clients.
The decision to choose the EpiCentre as its base follows on from the announcement by Norwegian tech company Dolphitech, that it is going to open its first UK office in the same building.
Oxford Innovation has signed-up Metals Daily, with the company citing the benefits of being part of a business community as the EpiCentre fills up and the value for money aspect over a Cambridge location.
The company is taking a three-man office with plans to expand rapidly.
Ross Norman, the owner and CEO of Metals Daily, explains: “We really like the idea of sharing business experiences with other companies in the building giving it a cross-between a conventional office and a Regus or WeWork flexible space, but with a more personalised feel.
“Cambridge is a very expensive location and hard to get into, so Haverhill as a satellite location gives you the benefits of the Cambridge Phenomenon without the price tag.
“In any event, the science and research parks are moving out in this direction as the Cambridge benefits ripple outwards,” adds Norman.
Gareth Scargill, commercial director at Oxford Innovation, said: “We welcome Metals Daily to the building.
“It is important to us that The EpiCentre creates a sense of community amongst the businesses located here and it is very much part of the Oxford Innovation ethos to help young, entrepreneurial companies to grow.
“Metals Daily clearly fits this mould and we are looking forward to helping it in its growth trajectory.”
Mr Scargill urged organisations looking for flexible office or laboratory space to visit the centre’s website and to get in touch to find out more about the centre.
The EpiCentre has over 60 office suites available from 17sqm (172 sqft) up to 78sqm (840sqft) including three flexible shared purpose-built laboratory spaces with access to specialist equipment.
