“Dedicated to Ardee and its Economy”.
Our Mission statement since 1998.
Arising out of a need for a community response to the high unemployment levels, the low level of inward investment and the lack of job creation opportunities in the Ardee region. It was the brainchild of a number of local individuals. Key to the sucess was the need to develop facilities which were lacking in the area and creating enterprise which was sustainable and give much needed employment and also focus on upskilling and provide training in support of local businesess.

Creating Office Space
One of our Objectives in 1998 was to create a range of flexible Office spaces, designed to the highest standard in a ‘ready to operate’ model. This ensuring you only pay for the space you really need.
Creating Commercial Space
Commercial and Industrial units in a range of sizes with entrance doors at front and rear. Automated roller shutter doors, 3-phase power, Loading areas, Car parking restroom facilities.
Identifying and facilitating local needs brought about the creation of the ‘North East Food Hub’. A range of different sized Food production facilities including a fully fitted kitchen.
We have a Mangement & Admin Team who look after all the day to day activities for the Centre. This ensures we are always on hand to support your Business & Training.
Planning for the Future
The Board frequently meet and discuss further opportunites to widen the scope of employment/service that we currently provide for.
We seek to help start-ups that have a solid business plan and direction and help them begin their journey.
