Through our strong links with academia and regional universities, we organise regular events to promote an exchange of ideas, opportunities to collaborate, and a chance to engage with a vibrant talent pool of local graduates.
The home of science and business on Teesside
Wilton Centre is the premier science park in the North East of England and provides office, laboratory and pilot plant accommodation. The complex is set in a 75-acre landscaped park with its own lake and courtyards, and is adjacent to Wilton International, which sits in the heart of the North East of England Process Industry Cluster (NEPIC).
Wilton Centre is one of Europe’s largest R&D facilities and houses a number of leading global and regional businesses in the chemical, manufacturing, material, and life science industries. Our community thrives on science and innovation, and we provide the ideal environment for growing and established businesses.
We host one of seven national High Value Manufacturing Catapults, which means we provide access to world-class equipment, expertise and collaborative opportunities. We work with manufacturing businesses of all sizes and from all sectors, and help to turn ideas into commercial applications by addressing the gap between technology concepts and commercialisation.
Our facilities include flexible office, laboratory and manufacturing space, but we also make sure that your team has everything they could want nearby, including ample parking, restaurant facilities, meeting rooms, a gym, and more.
Wilton Centre is located in the heart of an innovation cluster in the North East, which is situated just 10 minutes from Middlesbrough. Excellent rail and road links connect to the rest of the UK, whilst Durham Tees Valley airport provides excellent connections to Europe and beyond.
Few geographical locations offer access to funding, an established supply chain, and labs and offices to rent, and – as we prepare for future growth – it’s reassuring to know that our expansion will not be constrained by space or access to skilled personnel.
