Aport expands with new base at Alderley Park

16/08/2021 / Integrated relocation

Aport is excited to announce it is expanding with a new Cheshire premises at Bruntwood SciTech’s Alderley Park.

Over the last couple of years, we have experienced a growing demand for our expertise in relocating laboratories and moving scientific equipment, data and samples all over the world, partly due to the increased focus on science as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and other influencing macro-environmental factors.

We felt Alderley Park was a natural place for our next UK office due to its thriving scientific community and spirit of innovation. The £247 million development on a 400-acre site near Macclesfield is already home to over 200 life science and tech businesses including national institutions such as Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute and the Medicines Discovery Catapult.

Tim Aspey, managing director of Aport, said: “We are delighted to be preparing to move into our new address at Alderley Park – a location which has an outstanding reputation for scientific excellence. Demand for Aport’s specialist laboratory relocation services has never been higher so opening a new base in close proximity to so many potential customers was an obvious next step in our expansion.”

We are the first company in the world to offer fully integrated and compliant laboratory relocation services across the globe, delivering end-to-end project management performed to industry recognised GxP standards. We have a global presence with agents located in Singapore and North America, and we’re exploring where else we can expand to within the UK and further afield.

Jane Wood, Aport’s business operations and development manager, said: “The whole Aport team is excited about starting this new chapter and we’re looking forward to meeting our new neighbours at Alderley Park. We love the sense of community at the science park and this was one of the major factors in our decision to establish a premises there.”
