£1m upgrade for Merlin close to completion
As the former head office for Rolls-Royce’s massive Hillington Park based engineering business, Merlin Business Centre is more than familiar with the buzz of commerce and entrepreneurship.

Today it is home to ambitious new start companies, branch offices for UK and international corporations and head office for indigenous Scottish businesses with aspirations to grow and and with its £1m refurbishment and upgrading programme close to completion it is now one of the most modern provider of flexible office space in the west of Scotland.

The investment project has seen many infrastructure improvements including new lifts and new entrance complimenting a refurbishment and redecoration of the reception and public areas, including new kitchen spaces.

Alistair Nisbet from Hillington Park said: “This investment means Merlin Business Centre remains a top choice for any organisation looking for flexible office space in the heart of one of Scotland’s largest and most connected business parks.”

Current occupiers include eCommerce and business software company Etellect, IT and data management company CALM Survey Solutions (which has three offices across the UK) and MIQ Logistics, a provider of global transportation and distribution services in Europe, North America, South America, and Asia. MIQ has 230 staff in eight locations around the UK and currently operates from three suites at Hillington Park.

Merlin Business Centre also benefits from being fully linked to its own superfast broadband services provided by Hillington Park’s own telecoms partner, Bridge Partners.

Alistair added: “It’s unlike most office space in the west of Scotland because it doesn’t have the challenges a city centre location brings and it benefits from close proximity to the motorway network, has two ‘on Park’ train stations and of course Glasgow Airport is only a couple of minutes drive away.

“Merlin’s flexibility, like our Innovation Centre, gives companies scope to expand as their business grows. We also have a management team that is highly skilled and experienced in supporting them achieve their goals.

“A further benefit to all of our clients based here, and across the Park for that matter, is that should they are they are just a couple of minutes from the Innovation Centre’s larger scale conference and meeting spaces.
