Is CRATE for you?

Whatever stage your business is at, CRATE can ignite growth.
Our 'Craters' are drawn from many different business sectors and come with varied experience, to give one another fresh ideas, guidance and encouragement.

Total flexibility

Crate sites are versatile and can support retail, food and drink, workshops, studios and office-based businesses.
Doors, windows and internal fittings have all been selected on the basis of quality, security and longevity, ensuring all-year-round comfort and built in features such as LED lighting and fob access control.

Want a location your customers love to visit?

"'s like an extended family and like a time gone by on the high-street"


Growing fast and need a space that evolves with you?

Are there three of you now, but you expect fifteen within two years? 

Fed up of moving across the borough every time you hire new staff? 

As you grow, we have bigger spaces to keep pace with your business.

Not yet in your own premises and unsure if you can afford it?

CRATE has smaller units, so you only pay for what you need. Our easy in/easy out all-inclusive terms mean there’s no long-term lease, utilities or service charges to worry about. With our package of business support and marketing services included in the price, we help you focus on what really matters.

Need a workshop and a showroom?

The unit can be set up in your own configuration to make the best use of space. Create your dream workshop to inspire your art or trade, separated off from a 'shop front' or show room where you can host your customers.
