MP welcomes 100th occupier at SBC Medway

Mark Reckless MP recently welcomed Space Business Centres 100th occupier to the site, in Knight Road, Rochester.

Mark Nightingale, (centre right, pictured with Mark Reckless MP, Alex Gale of Space Business Centres (right) and Councillor Jane Chitty (left)) of Nightingale Bathrooms are a bathroom installation company based in Medway covering Kent and the South East. They specialise in bathroom conversions for the elderly, disabled and anyone with mobility problems and have over 15 years’ experience in surveying and installing specialist bathrooms.

They decided to move to the Space Business Centre not only due to the location, the quality of accommodation and competitive prices but most importantly due to the flexible nature of the licences requiring no long term commitment.

Commenting on the Centre, Mark Nightingale stated:

“Space Business Centres is exactly what our business needed as our first base. It offers a flexible monthly licence, an inclusive rent as well as fixed annual uplifts so that we can plan ahead. In these difficult times it is comforting to know that we are not tied in to a long term commitment.”

Units start range from 350 sqft to 900 sqft so as Mark’s business grows, Space Business Centre will be able to offer him an opportunity to trade up in size as well.

Alex Gale of Space Business Centres commented:

“It is fantastic news to welcome on site our 100th occupier. Having commenced marketing in 2009 at the bottom of the market, we have worked hard to position our Centres as being the ultimate flexible property for small and start-up businesses and we have been rewarded with the take up on site. We would like to wish Mark every success in the future and hope that they will be able to grow the business on site with us. You don’t read too many good news stories at the moment, so it is pleasing to see that the entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in Medway.”

Mark Reckless MP added:

“It was a pleasure to welcome Nightingale Bathrooms to their new business home. It is great to see so many small and medium businesses being given the opportunity to start up and expand here in Medway. I would like to wish them every success for the future.”

Space Business Centres have now created over 200 jobs on site since the doors were first opened nearly 4 years ago. Space Business Centres provide the easy way to occupy commercial property. Units are specifically targeted at new start-up companies as well as SME and those companies looking to upsize or downsize. The Centre’s units are ready-to-use, flexible and secure without the pressures of a long term lease. Units are let on easy-in, easy-out terms with just one month’s commitment. See
