The first tenants have been welcomed into the Harborough Grow-on Centre, and discussions are underway for more companies to join them over the coming weeks.

Krypton IT Solutions have moved into the new Harborough District Council-owned office space in Market Harborough, which boasts flexible office suites ranging in size from around 500 to 2,100 square feet.

Several other companies are actively discussing accommodation options and lease terms with the Council, a strong indication that Harborough district’s robust economy is showing really positive signs of regrowth after the challenges of Covid-19.

Harborough Grow-on Centre (HGC) is a brand-new energy efficient, high specification office building designed for dynamic and growing small and medium-sized businesses, located in an expanding commercial area.
