New tenant for Midlothian Science Park

Published: 20 December 2014

Edinburgh Technopole today announced that a major UK company has signed a lease for office space at the privately-owned science and technology park at the Bush Estate.

Benchmark Holdings plc has taken a number of desks in Bush House at Edinburgh Technopole in a move that that further demonstrates the pedigree of the park in attracting high growth animal health, life science and technology companies, following Alba Bioscience’s move to the park earlier in the year.

Chris Mitchell, Associate Director of LaSalle Investment Management, asset manager for BEST Network and its member locations said:

Animal health and technology is a major growth sector and key to the future economic success of Scotland, so we are delighted to have been able to attract a company with the reputation of Benchmark to Edinburgh Technopole.

This is an exciting time amid rapid growth for Benchmark Holdings and their decision to take space at Edinburgh Technopole further demonstrates the park’s excellent reputation for nurturing specialist industries.

LaSalle Investment Management can provide an unrivalled level of quality and flexible service to prospective tenants looking to grow and we hope to make further announcements in the near future. As part of the BEST Network, our tenants are also part of a virtual cluster with similar companies across the UK helping them to expand their business and create new relationships.”

Benchmark Holdings CEO Malcolm Pye commented:

Since being established in 2000, Benchmark continues to grow and develop beyond what any of us could have hoped for.

This has been an incredibly successful year for the company and now, at what is one of the most exciting times in our history, we are delighted to make Edinburgh Technopole the home for our Animal Health division and look forward to working in such a beautiful setting.”

Edinburgh Technopole is part of the BEST Network and a world class science and business park across multi-sectors of life sciences, medicine, electronics and informatics. The 126-acres offers state-of-the-art science and research facilities housed in four impressive, highly specified buildings, and set in magnificent parkland.
