Technology is one of the fastest growing sectors that is universally regarded to be fundamental to the future economic health and prosperity of UK plcs.
The technology sector in Greater Manchester is consistently ranked as the best outside London – with many companies choosing to relocate here from the capital, citing reduced operating costs and the access to a rich talent pool as major reasons for this.
But it’s not just Manchester city centre that is pulling in these big name, fast-growth tech businesses.
In recent years, Stockport has been gaining traction as a location that is capable of providing premium and purpose-built office space at the best possible price, while also being even better placed than Manchester when it comes to transport links.
This is in addition to the status it enjoys as the location where WordPress – the world’s largest online publishing platform – began life.
More recently, Stockport’s reputation as the location of choice for leading tech businesses has been enhanced by global online trading website MusicMagpie, which has relocated there, as well as fast-growth software company CDL’s presence there.
