What is The Industrial Estate Network ?

What is the network?

It’s easy when you’re based on an industrial estate to have little idea of what’s going on around you, to have no conception of the other companies that are your neighbours and who are also likely to be operating in isolation. Do you know if the business next door provides a service that could work for you – or if your product could be used by them? Chances are you don’t which is where the Industrial Estate Network comes in.

Initially being launched to link businesses on Middlesbrough’s Riverside Park, the aim is to create a national network which will have companies based on business estates working together for their mutual benefit.

Connecting companies on the same industrial estate has endless benefits – sharing ideas and services, collaborating with each other and overall creating a strong, business community for everyone’s benefit.

If you have a business based on Riverside Park join us – together we can really connect!

What Are The Benefits?

As part of a unique network, the businesses at Riverside Park can enjoy all the benefits that meeting new contacts can bring.

As part of the Industrial Estate Network you get the following benefits:

  • Your own business page with our website to showcase your product/service.

  • An opportunity to highlight success stories, vacancies etc to other businesses

  • Shared media opportunities to promote the estate as a whole

  • Higher visibility for your business to a local, regional and national audience

  • Increased collaboration leading to increased business opportunities

  • An opportunity to promote your business as a group and on an individual basis

How Do I Join?

It couldn’t be simpler! Visit our website at and sign up. We have a number of reasonably priced packages available which also give you THREE MONTHS FREE membership.

Each package brings its own benefits and are priced to suit businesses regardless of size.
We can already count some of Riverside Parks leading organisations as our members – so make sure you don’t miss out.

And of course if you’re from another estate or another area and want to find out how we can assist you to set up an industrial estate network please get in touch.

Please contact Anna Smith - 07545 382629 or email to find out more.
