Blackwater Development Association building small business bridges
Posted on Wednesday 4 August 2010 byUlster Business
A new £700,000 Business Park in Blackwatertown is all set to breathe new business life into the quiet County Armagh village.
Bridge Business Park, with a high-spec office block providing 10 let-able units for start-up and established businesses, is now open for business.
The project was funded by the International Fund for Ireland, the Department of Social Development, Department of Enterprise Trade and Investment, Armagh City and District Council, and the Ulster Community and Investment Trust.
Chairman John Campbell said that the project was a wonderful example of how a community could strive to create a better future for its area.
“The drive and vision shown by Blackwatertown Development Association is proof that this community wants to move forward and create a better, shared future,” he said. “The new facilities are about more than attracting new businesses, they are also about strengthening and underpinning community life for years to come.”
Armagh Business Centre will manage the letting of the Business Park units.
“We are delighted to be associated with this new phase of workspace development,” ABC Property Manager Eileen Stewart said. “Business and entrepreneurial activity now quite literally sits at the heart of the Blackwatertown community. New businesses starting up, and businesses expanding, signal a growth in the economy and a changing mood in Northern Ireland.
“Providing high quality, affordable workspace within the Armagh District is a key objective for economic growth and Armagh Business Centre is keen to support organisations such as Bridge Business Park to achieve this goal.”
