The manager of our Price Street Business Centre in Birkenhead, Neil Williamson, is celebrating his second anniversary at the helm.

Neil took over management of the centre in May 2011 and has seen occupancy increase significantly through his ideas and hard work.

A vibrant place to work

When he first took over as manager, he was determined to make the centre into a vibrant business hub and Neil says the highlight of his Bizspace career is when he achieved his goal of taking occupancy above 70%, which it has been at for more than six months now.

“We have worked hard to make the business centre look inviting and create an exciting work environment for the companies based here,” Neil says.

“We have invested in a wide range of refurbishment work, such as new carpets, new ceiling tiles, painting and decorating and new signage. We are also due to have a whole new roof fitted in the coming months.  I think it’s great for our customers to see their rent is being put back into improving the centre and making it an attractive place to work.”

A mix of businesses

Neil believes that more businesses want to move in now that the centre is busier. It has an interesting variety of businesses on-site, including a gym owned by Mike Ahern – best known as ‘Warrior’ from the TV show Gladiators, and auction house Kruger Gibbons, which recently played host to an episode of The Antiques Road Trip, due to be screened in August.

“The first customer to move here when I became manager was The Longbow Shop, which provides traditional archery supplies and even has a test shooting range within its shop. It is still a customer of ours today and has recently taken on a new unit with us,” Neil says.

“Having Kruger Gibbons Auctioneers and Valuers move into the centre was also another highlight.  They have an auction every Monday which brings a huge amount of footfall to the business centre. This is great for our other customers too, and we have even had some new businesses move in as a result of people visiting the auctions.

“We are very excited about seeing the centre on The Antiques Road Trip later in the year and are hoping some other TV shows may visit here in the future.”
