Sometimes it takes foresight, fast action and the ‘seizing the moment’ to get a company off the ground and meet an immediate need in an emerging market.
Had it not been for Hethel Innovation’s backing and support, and the space we were given at Scottow Enterprise Park, there’s no way that Raptor Aerospace would have been able to seize a gap in the UK space industry and get our research rockets flying from UK sites in a matter of months.
Our base at Scottow Enterprise Park has proved very valuable, not only for having space for us to test our equipment but by being part of the business network which has led to business opportunities.
Having previously worked on RAF Coltishall when it was a live airbase it has also been great to see it put to such good future use.
As one of the earliest tenants coming into Scottow Enterprise Park, Anglia DNA Services has seen the site fill and develop around it.
Our modern laboratories were extensively refurbished by the Scottow maintenance team who did an excellent job working around us and letting us operate as they worked through the building. Visitors always comment on the excellent job that has been done.
The admin team in the main Scottow offices are unfailingly helpful and polite working with us to make sure the Scottow experience is a good one.
The management team are always approachable, personable and very helpful leading to speedy resolution of issues.
Essentially SEP is much more than just a landlord. They do truly want companies to innovate and succeed and they will go above and beyond to accomplish this. A big thumbs up from us.
